Pure Presentation Skills for Makers

This page is for international artists, makers or producers who need to present their work in English, either in front of an audience – such as at artist talks and conferences  – or in private settings like pitches, sales meetings & collaborations.

Do You Need to Up Your Presentation Level?

No one knows your work better than you do. You’re a maker. You, eat, sleep and dream about what you do.

Only sometimes, you need to present in public: to make sales, secure funding – or progress your career.

That can make you vulnerable in any language, but do your current English skills allow you to express yourself fully during presentations?

Ask yourself, Do I sound like myself in English?

Or is my information, style, purpose and personality getting lost in translation?

International Makers Need to ‘Talk the Talk’ 

You know makers need to speak fluently and convincingly about their work in ways which please or impress others.

It’s why part of every creative’s career training is learning to represent your work verbally.

If you’re a professional – you’re likely good at it already.

Only what happens when you must present in English?

Being able to represent your work out loud is never something you should compromise on.

Meaning matters.

Say what exactly you mean.

And say everything you wish to.

Say nothing less than what you wish.

Get help showing up as yourself in English.

  • Certainty around which tense to use to describe past, present and future projects – and understand the power of each for your messaging.
  • Convincing messaging. Reach your audience through better adjectives to communicate concepts more clearly.
  • Be compelling. Have your audience fall in love with your work, through your storytelling.
  • Build a deep and lasting language memory which will aid ALL your future presentations.

You will feel like yourself in English, because we will fine-tune your Presentation English as we run through (again and again), getting YOUR words perfect and pure. 

About Presentation Coaching

Presentation Coaching is a specialism within English for Specific Purposes, a type of ESOL tuition which trains aspects of your English for better workplace performance.

Presentation Coaching is not a conversation class, rather, it’s a dedicated space to practice and ‘fine-tune’ presentation skills, honing the language skills YOU need to deliver information to audiences.

(It’s all about what you need to say!)

Insist on Experience

An ESOL coach does the most effective Presentation Coaching if they have a background in your field.

That’s why, at Blue Noun Language Hub, we only offer our Presentation Coaching to Makers.

Your lead coach, Ruth, has 20 years of experience presenting art and design work to the public.

She’s an expert at representing artists and artworks in public realms.
(See her profile here.)

The Pure Presentation Skills for Makers Course is only for artists, designers, micro-business owners, architects, and producers: professionals who need to perfect their answer to the question, ‘What do you make?’ for giving international presentations, collaborations and artist talks.

 

“Whatever your presentation style is in your native tongue – we’ll get that shining through in English.” 

Ruth, 2023

To fine-tune is to adjust precisely so as to bring to the highest level of performance or effectiveness.
