Effective interview and presentation skills – whether at a formal interview or a chance meeting where there might be work at the end of it – are essential. Some find the thought of self-presentation terrifying! Others find it easier. Whatever you feel, you can always do better.

Workshop Content

This one-day workshop is designed to give practical advice and support to help you improve how you demonstrate your many skills and abilities to a potential employer, through both what you say and how you say it. It covers:

  • How to prepare effectively
  • How to get your message across
  • How to respond to difficult questions or challenging scenarios
  • How to match your skills to the opportunity
  • How to positively use your voice and body language
  • How to confidently present yourself and your experience

We offer lots of practice, advice and mock interviews/meetings (you define the situation that will be most helpful to you). You will receive constructive feedback, and get the chance to test-drive new responses to your dreaded questions or scenarios.

Who should attend?

Anyone who needs to present themselves effectively with the aim of making the most of every face-to-face opportunity to get more work.

By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • have gained a clearer understanding of how you come across in person and how to improve this
  • have practiced and received constructive feedback on the effectiveness of your interview or presentation technique
  • understand what you need to do to maximise the impact you make
  • know how to prepare for an interview so that you feel informed, confident and as relaxed as possible
