Active Presence is a niche communications consultancy, committed to improving B2B communication

Established in 2002, we offer a broad range of consulting services and presentation skills courses designed to help you and your business deliver complex information and concepts in creative, engaging and memorable ways

 

As a professional business person, it is likely that you are required to present frequently before audiences of differing sizes and experience levels. What are your key sales messages? Could you repeat your business case concisely and coherently while remaining relevant to different customers? While many of our clients believe they can, the reality is that public speaking skills vary greatly and improving those skills requires dedication. The benefit derived from delivering clear, concise and consistent key messages makes it worth the effort.

We will question your understanding of your clients’ needs, work with you to clarify your thoughts and articulate a clear and concise set of sales messages that can be taken to any audience with confidence.

You know the classic style - we've all witnessed it: slides saturated with bullet-points and illustrated with unimaginative corporate graphics have, sadly, persistently set the industry standard.

We will show you a better way.

Having worked with you to construct an extremely powerful sales case, we will coach you to communicate it in a confident and engaging way. Unlike traditional presentations skills training companies, Active Presence will inspire you to deliver truly integrated business performances that your clients will long remember.

In short, working with us will enhance your reputation and revolutionise your sales conversion ratio.

We can work with you on a one-to-one basis, in a small group or across a whole division. Whether you present frequently (on a large or small scale) or internally to project teams and advisory groups, we can provide support.

All of our communication skills programmes can be delivered to you at your premises or at our dedicated coaching studio. Our pre-programme survey allows us to customise courses to your specific needs and with a particular focus on your own personal success criteria. Getting to know you and your company is the first step in that process - so you know what do...
