Do you put a lot of effort into preparing your presentations, but feel like your audience is not engaged and you’re not doing justice to your ideas?

You will learn how to clarify and structure your ideas, sharpen your message and interact confidently with your audience, using a systematic approach and tools to inform, persuade and inspire others. 

Course reviews

I did this course and actually had to give a talk 5 days later at an international symposium.  With all the just learned techniques from the course I was able to overcome my fear of presenting and actually deliver a great presentation, resulting in winning the “Best Guest Presentation Award".

Sabine (Klischies) Puzzovio

Senior Editor for Forecast Drugs at Clarivate 
I am still amazed how many new things you were able to teach me despite my years and years of presentation experience!
Last week, I was giving a 10-minute version of the talk on the haptic car finder that I trained in your course. I had a lot of fun to apply all the lessons that I learned from you. My colleague Rodrigo said that he recognized “Brian all the way” and that the talk stood out of the rest of the talks by far.

Martin Pielot

Staff Quantitative UX Researcher & Manager at Google
It has made me improve my presentations and thanks to their key techniques and advice I won one of the best communication awards in the EACPT Congress in June 2015. 
I recommend this course to everybody working in scientific research to help them in communicating their findings. 

Maria Giner Soriano

Pharmacoepidemiology Research at IDIAPJGol
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.
