Presentation Skills Training

Workshops at Your Corporate Location

Syntaxis presentation skills training teaches business professionals to convey their ideas more powerfully in any context, from a meeting with colleagues to a high-stakes client pitch or boardroom presentation.

Every Syntaxis presentation skills workshop is taught by Brandt Johnson, a former investment banker, speechwriter, and business journalist. Workshop participants learn by doing. They speak repeatedly in front of the group, offer one another constructive criticism, and watch themselves on video. Seeing themselves through the objective lens of the camera helps presentation skills workshop attendees understand how they are seen by others. Small class size ensures an interactive and collegial training atmosphere.

Each presentation training participant receives a copy of Brandt’s book Presentation Skills for Business Professionals.


Our basic presentation skills workshop focuses on the essential elements of preparing and delivering an effective presentation. Training topics include body language, eye contact, vocal projection, content, nervousness, and confidence. Through interactive exercises, participants learn strategies for delivering a strong, clear message, whether to a single listener or an audience of hundreds.

  • Advanced Presentation Skills Training

Participants in our advanced presentation skills workshops bring materials from their own past or upcoming presentations and draw on them for in-class exercises, furthering the connection between workshop and workplace. In addition to reviewing delivery fundamentals, this presentation skills training covers how to incorporate visual aids, respond to questions, and maintain control of a presentation. Contact us about this presentation training.


This two-part workshop helps business professionals develop a range of presentation skills, from basic to advanced. The first session focuses on fundamentals such as authenticity, body language, voice, and content. In the second session, participants work on their own past or upcoming presentations — for example, a talk at an internal meeting, a client pitch, a boardroom presentation. Participants are given assignments to complete between the two sessions, ensuring continuing development over time. Contact us about this presentation training.
