Give a Winning Presentation 


Planning the approach

  1. Research the audience: three key questions to which audiences want answers.
  2. “What do people want to hear?” rather than “What am I going to say?”
  3. Time-saving approaches to structuring a presentation and making the content relevant.
  4. How to grab and retain the attention of an audience even with a boring or complex legal topic.


Preparing yourself, notes, visual aids and documents

  1. Overcoming nerves; good oral projection; positive body language.
  2. Interesting, helpful and legible visual aids.
  3. How to make the most of documents and handouts.
  4. Practising effectively with the minimum effort.


Preparing for questions and answers

  1. Anticipating and preparing answers to “nice”, “nasty” and “scenario” questions.
  2. Handling difficult questioners with confidence.


Each person gives a presentation and answers questions, which are filmed and from which positive, constructive, personalised feedback is given to the lawyers.



The workshop will include theory, discussion, checklists, case studies, role plays, class exercises, examples, presentations, tools, tips, traps and techniques. Some interactive parts of the workshop will be filmed on video, the output reviewed constructively and feedback given.



By the end of the session, each lawyer will have given a presentation on a relevant legal topic, learned how to manage different audiences, dealt with difficult questions and have received constructive, relevant and practical feedback.


We'd be delighted to talk to you about this, so do please email Pippa on  or telephone her on: +44 (0)118 931 0688.
