High Impact Presentations

LEADERSHIP SPEAKING...most feared of all leadership skills 

A person who can listen, think and speak “on their feet” will enjoy success as a communicator and respected as a leader.

Participants on this workshop will develop presentation and communications skills, as well as learning to apply the proven rule of: ‘Tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, tell them what you have told them…’ in an interesting way.

What is your need?

  • Do you need to influence people in meetings, forums, classrooms or conferences to change their thinking or behaviour?
  • Is nervousness or a lack of confidence in your ability to communicate ideas hindering your career progression or causing you anxiety?
  • Would you like to learn how to maximise your impact, influence your audience and ensure your communication is always clear and effective?

You can be a persuasive business presenter and influencer – and it only takes two comprehensive days of training and a solid follow-up coaching programme.

There's an Art and Science in Delivering a Business Presentation

Business presentations are different to the speeches we make at weddings, birthdays and sporting events. They require precision, intelligence and commitment. In the Leadership Speaking, The 3CM team will teach you everything you need to know to be an influencial business presenter.  They teach presentation skills in a unique and fascinating way. You’ll learn the theory behind why certain models and approaches are best practice, and despite the fact that we promise there are no role plays in the programme you’ll practice the techniques over and over until you know them inside out and can use them successfully from the minute you get back to work.


This 'Leadership Speaking' programme is limited to only 10 delegates, so that:

Senior and middle managers, technical experts, professional practitioners, sales and customer service professionals, supervisors and team leaders to apply skills for the preparation and delivery of confident and professional presentations that will inspire the audience and influence them to a point of view.

3CM's Experiential Learning Cycle

3CM utilised Kolb's experiential learning style theory to develop its own model and is typically represented by a five stage learning cycle in which the learner 'touches all the bases':

Experiencing Publishing Processing Generalising Applying
Learning from a 'doing' a relevant and engaging activity Learning from sharing reactions and observations with other participants Learning from examining that activity critically and discussing patterns, dynamics with other participants Learning from useful insight that could be used outside the activity setting Learning by applying the insights to work by determining how it could be used in actual situations.

How to Get the Most from Your Course Participation

You’re making an investment in time, and money (if you’re sponsoring yourself), by enrolling in this course. Here are three suggestions to help you reap more benefit from your participation:

  1. Consider what work team/colleague/friend you could teach an idea/technique to. This means, arrange a five-minute catch-up appointment with a work colleague/friend the next workday after your course to teach that person, the most memorable idea/techniques you learned in the course. This ‘teaching’ will help you retain the idea/technique. Until you can teach an idea/technique to other people you don’t really know it yourself.
  2. Plan to participate/volunteer. In all of George Sawiris’s courses he offers various opportunities, throughout the day, for participants to have additional attempts at practicing techniques/interaction types. The people that volunteer for these opportunities get more worth from the course. So come prepared to participate and volunteer.
  3. Before the course, write down in one sentence or phrase a specific thing/behaviour/attitude etc. that you’ll like to exit the workshop with. You’ll get the opportunity to share this thing/behaviour/attitude at the start of the day.

Learning Strategy

Transference of LearningDeveloping a High Performance Culture

Our courses are highly participative workshops and project forums in the true sense.  You'll have an opportunity to explore issues and practice skills during individual and group activities (Action Learning).  We believe that the most beneficial elements of our workshops are your opportunities to perform the new skills and receive feedback (not only from the facilitator, but from your peers as well).

We use “Action learning”, as a process in which groups of learners collaborate to solve actual workplace problems. In this way, organisations benefit from gaining solutions to critical challenges and participants benefit by learning from their experiences.

We follow a quick pace in our workshops so expect a high-content, high-involvement, high-energy programme.  We'll use checklists, handouts, questionnaires, learning guides, worksheets and workbooks, and samples of templates to provide you with tangible guidance in developing new skills.  Numerous tips and techniques are contained in the course materials and reinforced during exercises.  The focus and efficiency you gain from the workshop will reduce your extra workload.

To summarise – our approach is to do it rather than talk about it.
