Why are presentation skills important? Why is presentation skills training important? They help you communicate with confidence. Our coaches can help you hit the mark every time.
“People say to us that presenting is a greater fear to them than dying.”
Sitting in our Glasgow studio, Chairman Bill McFarlan takes a closer look at why presentation skills are so important in the workplace. The first is simple: we fear presentations. Our training helps you to overcome your fear of presenting. Whether presenting to the Board or public speaking to a senior audience, we can help you to present confidently, clearly, and concisely. You must start with the ‘what’s in it for the audience’ and use clear, vivid examples to make your case.
So what can you expect from a Presentation Skills course from Pink Elephant Communications? You’ll have fun, you’ll learn about Pink Elephants, watering down words, and answering difficult questions. And ultimately, you’ll overcome that fear of presenting to enjoy it – and give great presentations.
Three in four of us fear speaking in front of an audience. We explain why – and how to overcome that fear, turning it into confidence based on presentation skills, techniques and belief.
So it’s been a while since you learned our techniques and practised in front of our cameras. We’ll remind you of our winning methods and bring you right back up to speed again.
I recommend courses that have a lasting, positive impact, and I definitely will recommend this course. I have found myself asking why I don’t always feel sure about what I am saying, why do I think, or hope instead of believe or know. I will now say what I mean.

I really enjoyed the afternoon session with Bill. Lots of relatable stories that have stayed with me and made me aware of how much more impactful I can be by following some basic principles.

The session took a number of our chief officers with little media interview experience… There was a clear growth in the confidence of those taking part… it showed as their ability to deliver better interviews improved continually.

I would highly recommend the media training course having spent an intense but thoroughly enjoyable day at Pink Elephant Communications. Extremely worthwhile and proud to have won the Pink Elephant trophy!

Very engaging. They knew their topic and were able to answer all of our questions with genuinely usable advice.

Some media trainers knock you down…and leave you down. Our media coaches show you how to deal with each knock…and still win through. So you have the presentation skills to perform – with confidence.
