How to Engage and Persuade in your Presentations 2018

Presentation Skills Workshop

Too few leaders realise it, but presentation skills can be their single strongest argument for career advancement. When you are seen leading from the front of the room, you draw positive attention to your personal brand, you position yourself as a natural leader, and you become an asset to your organisation. 

Poor speaking skills can stop your progress dead in its tracks.  With so much at stake, why not invest in taking yours to the next level? 

This event goes beyond the mere mechanics of public speaking and presenting, and shows your sales and leadership teams how to truly engage and persuade. Are your messages 'un-ignorable'? Does the point get through? Are you so compelling that audiences leave your presentations excited about the way forward? At the very least, do you know which mistakes to cull, to avoid disqualifying yourself as an amateur?

Few learnable skills translate as directly into career growth as public speaking. When you're ready for results, when you're keen to win hearts and minds, when you're determined to lead your industry, there is no alternative. Join GIBS and Douglas Kruger for 'Lead From the Front – How to Engage and Persuade in your Presentations.' 


In recognition of excellence in his craft, global Professional Speaker Douglas Kruger has been inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame by the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa. He is a 5x winner of the Southern African Championships for Public Speaking and the author of '50 Ways to Become a Better Speaker,' and 'How to Make your Point Without PowerPoint.'

Douglas has been presenting on the business circuit for some fifteen years. He has personally coached the CEO of FNB South Africa, the senior leadership of BMW SA, the MD of Clarins and many more.
