The FSD network’s major purpose is to support Directors of Finance in Yorkshire and the Humber region in discharging their responsibilities in respect of developing financial management skills within their respective organisations and to play a leading part in creating a culture and environment within which the financial training and development needs of all staff.
The network has a team of regional trainers from within the finance departments across the region. After the success of a previous presentations training initiative delivered by PDG to the Assistant Directors a decision was made to extend the training to the trainer team with the following key objectives;
• To develop and build the confidence of the finance trainer team
• Share best practice
• Be better able to influence and persuade others in the training room
• To raise the bar in terms of their professional presentation skills
Based upon the PDG Powerful Business Presentations programme we designed a tailored solution that would give the participants the fundamentals of how to prepare and deliver a powerful message as well as giving them maximum number of opportunities to present on their feet and receive personal feedback and coaching tailored to their individual needs.
The feedback was some of the best they have ever received.
What did the participants say about the results?
One of the most useful training courses I’ve been on. Training that really helps in all areas not just work.
Never before have I completed a training programme with such a sense of achievement.
I never thought that being out of my comfort zone could be so much fun and also learn so much! It’s an eye opener!
A truly enlightening experience.
I’d never have had the confidence to make these changes and I hadn’t realised I was purposely making my presentations worse!
The journey was fantastic-it’s the best course I have ever been on.
A thoroughly enjoyable two days. The change will surpass your expectations.
Really hit the nail on the head with several aspects of my presenting style. Showed me my weaknesses and how to correct them.
You won’t believe how much difference this course makes to your confidence levels when giving presentations.
This course will bring out the best in you and you will amaze yourself at what you can do.
Hard work but fun. The change in you in a short space of time was astounding!
