Presentation Video Audit

The Presentation Video Audit is ideal for busy business people who feel they’d benefit from an expert third party assessment of their presentation. It’s also an excellent service for organisations that aren’t yet Active Presence clients: the audit provides a valuable service for a modest investment. The output from the audit is a video analysis of your presentation material (slides, presenter notes, etc.), suggesting where improvements can be made. The video is an excellent basis for making DIY presentation improvements, as well as briefing internal staff responsible for presentation production.

3C Methodology Transfer

The 3C Methodology Transfer program is designed for large organisations with significant internal presentation production services. As part of the syllabus we transfer our methodology to your staff and support them in their early application of it. Within the program, we have also created roll-out agenda for clients, including ‘teach-the-teacher’ packages. Although our methodology is consistent and well understood, transferring it into another domain requires flexibility. For this reason, each Methodology Transfer program is heavily customised to the client’s organisation and intended use.
