Developed by keynote presenter/speaker Geoff Cotton, 'Presentations: Traps and Tricks™' is a talk for audiences composed of people who have to make business presentations and improve presentation skills.

This talk identifies the traps which we fall into when making presentations; it also reveals tricks of the trade to avoid these pitfalls and generally improve the delivery of the presentation.

The 'Presentations: Traps and Tricks™' talk can be given in formats of 30 minutes, 1 hour or 90 minutes. Time for questions and answers can be included within these formats or added to the end of the talk.

The talk can be given as a 'stand-alone' visit from a guest speaker, or form part of a conference or a meeting.  It requires no visual or audio equipment and is interactive at several points, but no individual member of the audience is singled out.



The traps and tricks covered in the talk include:



"I have done a fair bit of training over the years but I have to say that last Wednesday was the best yet. Thanks again for a great day and please tell Geoff he was amazing"
