Auditory VerbalUK is proud to announce that our new supporter PS Programmes have chosen us as their charity of the year and will be providing a pro-bono Presentation Skills Training workshop for the AVUK team in London in February.

With long experience of working with speakers from world leaders and cabinet ministers to CEOs and Olympic athletes, international business presenter Nadine Dereza, and ‘the UK’s most trusted speaker coach’ Ian Hawkins, who will both deliver the workshop, have a wealth of real-life examples which help individuals learn from the best speakers in the world.

Through the session, Nadine and Ian will discuss their three golden principles of public speaking - authenticityauthority and audience - explaining how they work together, and how they should inform everything you say and do when you're in the spotlight. With straight talking advice, powerful techniques discussed and trade secrets revealed, the AVUK team will have the opportunity to get involved in practical exercises, and put their own questions to the experts.

Nadine Dereza, Media Director of PS Programmes, said: “The ability to speak well in front of others and deliver excellent presentations are essential skills for any individual – whether you’re pitching for business, rallying the team, talking to directors or speaking after dinner. Our unique approach cuts through jargon and gimmicks, advising that there are three golden principles common to all the most effective and memorable speeches and presentations. We are delighted to be working with Auditory VerbalUK and look forward to delivering our Presentation Skills Training workshop to the team.”
