Mindful presenters are more ‘likeable’. They build rapport quickly and easily, instilling trust and credibility whilst maintaining their audience’s interest.
The Mindful presenter is more creative, relaxed and has more fun; which means their audience’s get to be more creative, relaxed and have some fun too. Mindful presenters are remembered for the way they leave their audiences feeling.
Mindful presenters achieve their goals. A presenter can give a world class presentation but if it doesn’t achieve its desired aim then one could argue it was simply entertainment.
That is why good presentation skills are so important in the work place today. Whether you are giving a sales pitch, a quarterly update, a team meeting or presenting to the board its all about connecting with your audience to help them get better results.
If you have the public speaking skills to make that crucial emotional connection you will always be in a far stronger position than other professionals.
Performance anxiety and stress are greatly reduced through the use of techniques designed to calm and focus the mind.
‘Autopilot’ is a major challenge for most presenters; that is doing what they always do, yet hoping for a better result. They prepare and present the same slides with the same approach and deliver them in the same way regardless of the audience.
Authenticity is the number one attribute all presenters need as it allows you to be a little vulnerable, tell stories, show you’re human and connect with your audience.

“I can’t say enough how brilliant and inspiring Maurice is. I could listen to him all day. Everything he said just made sense, and made me wonder why I haven’t been doing it this way all along.” Paul Upton – Business Development Manager
“Thanks for running the training. I found it immensely valuable and one of the best takes on presenting training that I have ever had – it’s much nicer to encourage someone to have a personal style, rather than sticking to generic dos and don’ts.”
Joanna Mills – Customer Strategy Manager
