Effective Communication | Presentation Skills

Active Presence is a niche communications consultancy, established in 2002 to help people in business communicate their key messages in a memorable, coherent, and confident way.

Good businesses invest in people. So, while you will benefit from our consulting services and bespoke programmes, your clients and customers will in turn benefit from your improved communication skills, presentation design and public speaking performances.

Specialising in Confident Persuasive Presenting and Delivering Memorable PowerPoint, our core programmes will build your confidence and self-esteem, ensure that you can convey critical issues and are able to perform your business presentations for maximum audience engagement. You will be able to persuade people to your point of view more easily, becoming the 'go-to' source of authority within your field. Working with us, you will enhance your personal reputation and improve your sales conversion ratio.

Don't just take our word for it - there are plenty of client case studies and testimonials on the site that show how we've helped companies like VirginSurfachemAlard Electrical and Salegro.

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 acute support.

All of our programmes can be delivered to you at your premises or at our dedicated coaching studio. Co-located with our offices in North West England, our versatile studio is complete with stage space and video recording equipment.

Being on a stage psychologically changes the way you perform. People who are comfortable presenting from a stage find it an easier transition to other performance spaces, whether they be boardrooms, clients' offices or open networking environments. Experiencing the ‘space of the stage’ is highly valuable, even if you are not required to frequently perform on them.

We’d love to hear about you and your company and are confident that, whatever your needs, we could be helpful to you. Get in touch and start a conversation with us today.
