Presentation Skills for Information Professionals [Ref. No. TG1/PRES]
Twitter: @cpd25_M25 #cpd25
Do presentations fill you with dread? Do you have your first presentation coming up? Come along to cpd25’s Presentation Skills course and you will learn more about how to present, cope with nerves and practice presenting.
At the end of the workshop you will have:
- Examined why understanding your audience leads to a better presentation
- Discussed why preparation and structure are important
- Identified why you get nervous and developed confidence building strategies
- Created a personal action plan for future presentations
In small groups you will have the chance to present and give feedback on each other’s presentations. By the end of the day, presentations will seem that much more achievable than they have before.

Feedback from previous training for City, University of London Library Services:
“I just wanted to say how fantastic this course was and how much it helped me. I led a workshop yesterday for the first time…all of the anxiety I had previously felt melted and I received a lot of positive feedback.”
“Really enjoyed it; pitched perfectly for people getting used to presenting & those with a bit of experience.”
