Here are five common challenges companies may face with their staff doing public presentations
Lack of confidence
Many employees may not have the confidence to speak in front of large groups, which can impact on their ability to effectively deliver a clear message. They struggle to efficiently and effectively communicate with their customers when presenting at conferences and seminars or even one-on-one in a boardroom or office resulting in lost opportunities and revenue.
Luminon offers comprehensive training modules to help individuals and teams improve their live presentation skills from designing PowerPoint slides to using humour and getting your main message to stick. Our technical support and facilities provide specialised guidance on microphone technique, sound systems, video technology, special FX, and lighting options. Our training is tailored to specific groups such as sales and marketing, board-level and upper-management presentation skills. We provide constant feedback and mentoring to ensure that individuals can deliver presentations with professionalism and confidence. Don’t let subpar presentations hold you back!
Even if employees have the necessary knowledge and information, poor delivery can detract from the effectiveness of the presentation. Are you tired of mediocre presentations and interviews that don’t reflect your company’s professionalism?
Our job is to make absolutely sure that these presentations and interviews are handled with professionalism, adeptness, protecting the company’s profile and reputation and looking comfortable in front of an audience.
Technical issues such as poor microphone or sound quality, poor video quality, or poor lighting can impact the delivery of a presentation and reduce its effectiveness. Sooner or later every person who has to deliver a presentation to their own staff, management or invited clients and delegates will have to deal with technical skills such as microphone technique, “death by PowerPoint” and video presentations, podcast interviews and for senior staff even live radio and television interviews off the cuff, which includes presentation to studio and live camera techniques.
Luminon offers training modules and technical support for your entire presentation staff to improve their live lecture and speech skills. We provide guidance on the use of specific microphones, sound systems, video technology, special effects, and lighting techniques. The company also offers support for any technical difficulties that may occur during a live presentation, ensuring that the presentation runs smoothly even to the point of attending your actual function or conference to support the speaker.
Poor use of visual aids
Poorly designed slides, graphs or visual aids can distract the audience or fail to effectively convey the intended message.
Luminon can guide your staff on how to design slides for maximum impact, provide guidance on using uncommon presentation tools and video impact, and identifying the right screen format for presentations for technicians. We provide personal interaction, online and on-site training along with constant mentoring, follow-up on all participants and supply documentation for progress reports for management and HR.
Poor time management
Presenters may struggle to manage their time effectively during a presentation, resulting in a rushed or incomplete delivery of the message.
One-on-one coaching and continuous support from the beginning of their project to final delivery on stage.
By providing comprehensive training and technical support, we aim to ensure that individuals can deliver presentations and interviews with professionalism and finesse. Specific training modules are video-recorded so that recipients can receive constant feedback on their progress, see and hear their delivery, and find areas where they can improve to the point of being confident enough to present to any size audience. Our company aims to enhance staff presentation skills to a much higher level of professionalism than is usually expected or demanded, which would improve your company’s profile and reputation while protecting it from errors that can be made during presentations.
