Typically some or all of the chapters of Gill’s Presenting Yourself With Impact book will be covered

Outcome-Based Communication

This chapter focuses on the importance of knowing your outcome before you start, the message you want to get across to your audience, and how to present this in a memorable way.

Enabling and Limiting Beliefs

Most books on presentation skills focus on the acquisition of new skills and behaviour. This chapter explores how, if we do not challenge some of the beliefs we have about ourselves as presenters, our chances of embracing and using our new skills are severely reduced.

Building Rapport

‘Rapport’ is one of those words that we use without thinking about its real meaning. What does it mean to be in rapport with someone? How do we know we have rapport? It is so much easier to get people to buy into our message if we have some level of rapport with them. This chapter seeks to answer these questions and explores how we can set about building rapport with our audience.

Engaging The Senses

Here we explore the different ways in which people take in and process information, going on to analyse how we can use this knowledge to make sure we engage all the senses when presenting our message both in the language and medium we choose.

Language Of Influence

How can we use language to positively influence our message? We look at how the use of some everyday words and expressions can reduce our overall impact. We also look at words and language patterns which, if used sparingly, can create a positive impression on our audience and get our audience into a ‘yes’ way of thinking.

Creating A Resourceful State

Using the technique of anchoring, we can create a resourceful state for ourselves, be it confidence, energy, calm, which we can access when we need it, and use this state to our advantage.

Mind and Body

A highly practical chapter focusing on how we can increase the positive impact we have non-verbally (posture and gestures) and verbally (volume, pitch, breathing and tonality). It includes a series of short exercises to practise, either on your own or with colleagues.

Stepping into Your Audience’s Shoes

Here we explore one of the key skills of great negotiators/influencers/presenters – the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and experience the world through their senses. We will focus on how we can use this technique to tailor our message, and how we present it to our specific audience.

Getting Prepared

Hints and tips for preparing and delivering a formal presentation to a large audience: choosing your presentation medium, structuring your message, thinking about your venue, handling questions.

Having a Go!

This brings everything together and provides you with some final thoughts about getting started, preparation and rehearsal, reflecting on your experiences and extracting the learning.

Gill’s coaching has significantly increased my personal impact – I’m much more self aware, delivering an impact that I control, and getting positive outcomes – for me and for others. Gill coaches with a good blend of carrot and stick; communicates with knowledge, common sense and empathy; and guides me to find my own solutions to improve my personal performance.
