Aiding an already accomplished speaker in his quest for perfection

Canon Europe   |   Case Study


  • The Director of Information Security at Canon - a world-leading imaging solution provider - was a regular speaker at industry events bolstered by a high media profile within the sector
  • Engaging, knowledgeable and with a unique view on digital security he regularly received a positive response on the audience feedback forms that often accompany these events
  • However, a self-confessed perfectionist, he knew he could do better. He was familiar with presentation theory from numerous training courses but felt this left him presenting well instead of exceptionally. He challenged us to help


  • A 3-hour intensive coaching session working on his new presentation, with some media interview training tagged on as a bonus


  • PowerPoint slides were reduced, presentational style became more "effortlessly conversational" and - ultimately - impact and audience retention were increased
  • The first outing of his new presentation was a great success - he said he felt he'd "massively improved" and that "it really worked"
  • The results can be summed up in a testimonial kindly sent by the client:

"Massively improved - it really worked"

It was a real eye-opener as to what could be accomplished in such a short period of time. I really liked your style of teaching and feel that I've already massively improved. The presentation I gave last week was very good (so I have been told) - it really worked.
