Online Workshop: How to Build a Presentation - Student Edition

Event date

Event description

Learn how to structure a dynamic message using simple building blocks to achieve a confident and concise verbal presentation.

BIID Student members are invited to attend this 90-minute interactive workshop with communications expert Claudette Williams which will provide participants with a useful model for organising their thoughts into a cohesive presentation. Participants will learn how to establish a clear objective and a concise memorable message to use when presenting their final projects to course leaders and peers, and when presenting themselves to potential employers. 


During the session, participants will contribute to building a group presentation on a design topic agreed upon by the group. Once we understand who the audience is it is much easier to determine what they expect or need to hear. This helps to focus the entire presentation. Using a useful tool called the Content Blueprint, participants will develop a practical skill which can be applied to any situation.


Once we have developed the notes presentation, the presenter will demonstrate how to use these notes in a disciplined way. A well-structured notes presentation will tell you what you are going to say and, more importantly, what you are not going to say. This technique will safeguard against needless rambling and the nightmare of “losing one’s place”.


This event is for BIID Student members. Spaces are limited to 14 guests.


Claudette has worked in the communications industry since 1979 particularly in broadcasting, video production and industrial theatre. Her expertise centres on writing, producing, and presenting.

Corporate video production, elaborate business launches and business presentations have allowed her to successfully blend formal arts training with business acumen. Claudette appreciates that no amount of special effects can compensate for a poorly focused message or an unnatural delivery style. The entire presentation process changes when you look at it from the audiences’ (the client's) perspective.
