Presentation & Personal Impact: NEC Group Senior Leaders

People who know what they’re talking about don’t need PowerPoint

Our Client’s Problem

The NEC Group is a live entertainment business with world-class expertise in venue and destination management.

Important then that the Senior Leadership team confidently communicated the vision and mission of the business to their people.

As in the case of many of our clients, there was an over-reliance on the use of PowerPoint. The message was getting lost and the leaders own brand was not being given space. In a world-class destination business this was seen as a missed opportunity, which needed addressing.

Our Bespoke Solution

  • Pre-programme call with all participants to understand their specific learning objectives
  • A series of 2-hour 1-2-1 coaching sessions exploring personal brand, impact, emotional intelligence and presentation techniques
  • Completion of the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI)
  • Real-Play: participants practice behaviours and approaches
  • Post programme 1-2-1 coaching support

Please note: we also offer modular group versions of this programme

Our Learning-by-doing approach

We designed a bespoke programme; incorporating industry-leading psychometric testing & feedback, emotional intelligence and proven relationship and communication models and tools.

Each personal coaching session explored the practical use of the models and tools. Allowing the participant to try-them-on-for-size, comfort and fit. Developing authentic and confident approaches to presenting to audiences of varying sizes.

We used the specialist skills of our business role-player actors as audience members. Their first-person feedback gave participants the most valuable data rarely, if ever, given at work – how they came across and their interpersonal impact.

Client Feedback

I thought I would drop you a line to say that all went well yesterday. I did not stand behind the lectern, I was in the centre of the stage and presented from there. Feedback has been really positive. One comment was: Irrespective of whether you were still nervous or not, it was not outwardly displayed. In fact it was incredibly controlled, natural and came across as effortless. Many thanks for all your guidance.
