Unleash the Presenter in You

A unique 4-day part-time workshop. Discover alternatives to the standard Power Point presentation. Hone your public speaking skills and find your angle on presentations. Yes, presenting can be fun!


Coach Carolin Zeitler will help participants to develop enthusiasm - if not a passion - for presenting. They will realise what it is they want to say and how they can say it in a more engaging way. This workshop will plant a seed for them to become the best they can be.


  • Growing beyond the standard ‘five-bullets-per-slide’ Power Point Presentation
  • Becoming aware of the main ‘tools’ of the presenter: body language, facial expression & voice modulation
  • Utilising individual strengths and resources to develop a unique presentation style
  • Investing more thought into the message to be conveyed and the needs of the audience
  • Enhancing the ‘stage presence’ of the presenter
  • Developing clearer, more engaging and informative slides and handouts

About the workshop

This course looks at how we can make presentations more interesting and engaging. Each of us has a talent that can help us capture an audience and deliver information in an appealing, entertaining or thought-provoking way. Over the three days we uncover these talents and learn how to utilise them optimally.

We will also be working on:

  • Discovering and utilising individual strengths and resources
  • Building confidence as a speaker
  • What makes a great speaker?
  • Dealing with interruptions and questions
  • Creating effective and engaging visual aids
  • Becoming an enthusiastic and engaging public speaker
