Authentic & Purposeful Presenting: Amsterdam
Workshop | The Hoxton, Amsterdam — Limited places at £595 + VAT

Led by regular keynote speaker, author and change consultant Mark Shayler — this day long session is for those seeking to super-size their presentational skills.

One of the most popular presenting workshops in London is coming to Amsterdam on 30th April, with limited spots now availble to reserve.

Many of us don't look forward to speaking publicly. But we're often called on to do so — formally, informally, to big groups or small ones — in the hope of getting people on board to our point of view. And we all instinctively know a good public speaker when we see one; they make it look easy, and seem so natural doing it.

But if we want to get better, where do we begin?

Ultimately it's all about being you, and over the course of this full day workshop, in the charismatic company of Mark, you'll discover how to put more of you into any kind of presentation. And you'll take away techniques that will boost your confidence, and help you learn to love the experience.

What we'll cover:

  • How to relax and be yourself in the limelight

  • Making slides work, or how to work without them

  • Learning the role of the script

  • How to hold yourself

  • The power of the pause

  • Understanding your audience

  • Dealing with questions, or what to do when there aren’t any

  • How to project energy and keepi in time your audience

  • How to prepare so you won’t forget

  • How to end

How the session will be structured:

Expect an energising and practical day which will begin and end with everyone in the group giving a short presentation. This is filmed and we'll send you your footage by follow up, so you can see the progress made. Over the course of the day you'll be individually guided by Mark, and will take part in practice and discussion in pairs and groups. You’ll enjoy a mix of sharing, listening and doing — and a healthy lunch of course.

Who the session's for:

Anyone who wants to refine or build upon their existing presentation skills, whether you have a coming presentation in mind or not. Groups are limited to a maximum of 15 people.


"For anyone who wants to grow their confidence when presenting, and learn some simple frameworks for structuring killer talks and presentations, this is an unmissable workshop, led by a presenting grand master." — James Rutter, Head of Brand, COOK
