Powerful Presentations

The world rewards people who are best at communicating ideas, not necessarily the people with the best ideas. Using a range of proven techniques from multiple disciplines, you will enhance your capacity to inform, persuade and inspire others. You will learn a step-by-step approach that can be immediately applied to different types of presentations in a variety of situations - to internal and external audiences, technical presentations, sales, online and face-to-face etc. This is not merely a course about designing PowerPoint! - this is about learning how to craft your ideas in order to speak in public with confidence and clarity, thus moving your audience to action.

Brian's sessions were really great. I appreciate his enthusiasm and the way he works with people. Brian, thank you for the best session I ever had in my life.

I liked it a lot. It is very well structured and straight to the point, with useful assets and templates to leverage for practical applications.
Senior Executive
I am an experienced speaker and have delivered dozens of presentations for large audiences. Still, Brian helped me tremendously: my presentation would not have been a success without his help.

Brian McCarthy

Expert designer, teacher and facilitator in the areas of Leadership, Innovation and Communication
Brian McCarthy helps people get their greatest work into the world. He helps individuals, teams and organisations turn their big ideas into reality.

From an early age we are taught to study, analyse and discuss the ideas of others. But what about our own big ideas? How can we learn to better concentrate on our own ideas, structure them more clearly, collaborate with others, and then present them persuasively to the world? These are concrete skills we can learn and improve throughout our lives. My work focuses on how to better form and perform ideas using best practices from the fields of philosophy, rhetoric and performance.
