We are enormously proud to work with, and provide training for, blue-chip organisations like…
Everyone who presents should use this – always improvements to be learnt & remembered.
Take this course. No matter what stage you are at in your speaking career.
If you have been, or are going to present, this programme is a must.
Sonia is an excellent facilitator and the content and delivery were first class. I've attended a number of presentation skills courses previously and none of them have focused on the detail that this course does. I took away some great learnings to implement into my presentation delivery and would encourage anyone who conducts presentations on a regular basis to attend the course to improve their skills.
Belinda was a fantastic presenter and I would 100% recommend her any time. She helped us to gain more confidence and showed us how to excite our audience. Many thanks Belinda for the great course.
I can’t believe in such a short period I have moved from being afraid to speak in a small room to presenting to 100’s of people in many different countries.
I liked the presentation mapper, I hadn’t thought my presentations lacked structure but they will certainly flow better going forth.
This course will change the way you feel about public presenting. Practical magic.
Extremely worthwhile for professionals trying to secure business.
A very useful day to hone your presentation skills & arm yourself with tools to deliver an engaging presentation.
Birmingham City University
If you want to improve your presentation skills this training is really great.
Great – easy to use tips – very tailored day.
This course has a formula that works…takes a successful approach to presenting but without changing your own style.
I have been presenting for many years, but still learnt a lot from this course.
An in-depth, engaging, thorough 2 days that will utterly change how you approach presenting.
I can't thank Belinda enough for taking my presenting skills to the next level - there were so many simple but effective things that the programme taught me and I've already started to use the presentation mapper for upcoming client presentations. What made the course feel different to your average training programme was the investment and time Belinda also spent coaching us individually - Belinda's feedback was extremely insightful and those sessions also provided a great opportunity to work on and improve my skills in a 'safe' environment. I've definitely developed my skills and feel like I've massively stepped up - and as a result, have so much more confidence - thank you!
If you do any presenting in your role you must join this programme. Most useful training I have ever had.
Really enjoyed the workshop. Was really awesome to see the progress of my and my colleagues development and see their confidence develop.
A brilliant experience that immediately breaks down key areas of improvement and applies bespoke techniques to address these.
City of Wolverhampton Council
The most engaging, effective group session but tailored to our individual needs – delivered by a hugely experienced and personable trainer.
SecondNature is head and shoulders above any other external programme my company has used. I would highly recommend the session for anybody who has seen their online presenting increase in 2020!
I do believe you truly hit a home-run at Containerships these last two days! I have to say your ability to grasp our business was uncanny...
Great depth and actionable advice.
I really enjoyed the training! It was certainly very valuable! I found Belinda really looks into your personality and translates that into tips for presenting that suit this best. Also, the framework was very logical and the pacing was perfect!
Without doubt I would recommend this programme for anyone who has face to face meetings online and needs to present with style and impact. The programme really encourages you to think about your audience and covers everything from the set up of your surroundings, compilation of slide decks, annunication, getting your message across, communication, audience engagement and participation, the journey and the destination for your presentation. The roadmap is a genius idea to use as a template for any presentation you need to put together. Overall a hugely useful course which has given me oodles of confidence!
From the start Sonia made me feel at ease. The content was great, split evenly into manageable modules to give me time to work on what I had learned. From my “environment set up” to the presentation content and delivery, it all flowed very well. This (online) training has improved my confidence and is something I will take with me, not just on line, but face to face and even in general conversation.
Can I just say a massive thank you for the training, it was honestly one of the best trainings I have ever been to and think I have taken so much away from the two days!
Loved the approach and methodology, and our trainer was both very knowledgeable and engaging. The course allowed me to enhance my skills, develop winning presentations faster, whilst still allowing me to be me.
Brilliant + effective programme that has really helped me.
I had one comment that said “that was the best, most creative presentation I have seen from anyone in finance”!!!
The course was excellent & very thought-provoking. It has given me skills that will be invaluable for presenting and life in general.
For a two hour (online) fast class I thought it was great to get everyone to question their techniques and give some really useful pinpoints on how to engage more successfully with your online audience. Also pinpoints on your webcam layout is always useful!
Very enjoyable - relevant, lively, engaging.
First Trust Global Portfolios
Great at breaking down a difficult business task.
Fly | Martech Made Easy
Belinda was an excellent teacher, tailoring the course to mine and my colleagues’ specific requests and presentation needs. I have already applied what I learned to a successful client presentation that Belinda helped me refine during our 1-2-1 session. Thank you!
Not being a natural or experienced presenter at all, I feel a zen-like enlightenment being furnished with the many techniques and tools Belinda so competently showcased. I now feel genuinely confident in my ability to plan and deliver engaging presentations... with impact!
Most people can present, this programme creates the difference between a presentation and the one presentation that people remember.
Friend and Grant
If you are looking to improve your presentation skills then secondnature are 100% the company for the job. Belinda is brilliant.
GG Media Resources
Excellent, learned a whole new skillset.
Thank you, Sonia. Your approach, experience, and techniques were excellent. I found the course amazing and have taken a lot of learning away from this. I will use the mapper for future presentations and the feedback provided by you
An excellent course for improving presentation skills and managing confidence.” – “NO AM DRAM STYLE ROLE PLAY!”
The coaching was fantastic – it exceeded my expectations, as I never thought I could improve my skills and increase my confidence in presenting so much.
Highlands and Islands Airports
The programme helped me put focus into the key points rather than get into information overload...key words and siren words helped also.
Highview Power Storage
I am pleased to report that it went really well, and I enjoyed the whole process!
Enjoyable, practical and very useful course, and definitely boosted my confidence in presenting.
Essential for anyone producing presentations and telling a story through data & words.
Clearly showed me how to improve presentation skills as a whole, not just physical delivery of my current presentations but how to improve the presentation in the first place.
Most enjoyable and productive coaching I have ever had - very beneficial to me personally and ultimately to my business.
A really great tailored programme which focuses on you as an individual and what you require to improve.
It helped me to understand how to improve the way I communicate to the audience and keep them engaged...to articulate and emphasis messages and also how to improve my presentations to have strong key takeaways and explicit next steps.
An invaluable course for anyone wanting to learn how to better command the room when presenting.
Constructed course intelligently to meet our specific requirements and structured delivery to use time efficiently, whilst still providing tailored 1-1 training. Sonia's industry knowledge and background made it highly relevant and engaging.
Although I present fairly frequently it has given me the tools to take to another level.
Kite Global Insights
A great opportunity to take a step back – break down what makes up your own personal style and improve it radically.
This is the most effective presentation training I have ever done and really built my confidence and ability.
Leicestershire County Council
Brilliant!! The best presentation training available!
Fantastic + thought provoking.
Really helped me at our flagship conference this year. Incredibly liberating not to be reliant on notes, much more confident delivery, much more engagement with the audience. I now use the framework as my “go to” communications tool for everything!
Awesome experience. Everyone wants us to present but no one’s told us how to do it properly – until now.
2 of the best days I’ve ever spent outside of the business.
Brought science to the art of presenting.
The programme is great at giving you tips to present in a new and more interesting way and to be confident enough in your presentation style to be much less reliant on your slides to get your message across. Thank you Sonia!
The course made me think about aspects of presenting online that I had never considered before - Looking at the camera, lighting, sirens and points of persuasion. I will definitely use the planner as a tool to clarify my thought and work out my presentation structure before diving in. The One to One presentation really highlighted areas where I need to concentrate and unlearn some old habits!
Absolutely changed the way I approach building and delivering a presentation.
Couldn’t recommend more. It’s a great way to progress and love all the tools to use.
The impact of this programme on my career will be far greater than I first thought. The techniques and tools that Belinda has shared have been fantastic and I am already applying them in my everyday working life. Belinda was very friendly and engaging and really put me at ease the whole time. Highly recommend this programme!
I found this training incredibly useful and I feel like it has really helped 'level up' my presentation skills. The 1:1 coaching and small group sizes mean that it feels very relevant and interactive. There's plenty of space to ask questions and dig deeper. And the content is brilliant too. I've learnt techniques and tips that I expect to use for years and years into the future. Thanks Belinda!
Excellent course – very well structured; love the new tools I have to create and deliver presos.
I did find it extremely valuable. It not only helped me improve the delivery of presentation skills but all how to plan and structure a presentation too. The planning has actually greatly helped the delivery, and it feels like the content I am delivering now has emphasis on the important sections. Although I do not like being filmed, I found this valuable since it shows the difference from the start, throughout and once training was completed. I found this method adds to my confidences since you can visually see the improvement.
Excellent programme. Lots of really useful content and Belinda’s passion is fantastic.
Nikko Asset Management
Revolutionary approach to presenting that can be applied at all levels.
I found the training extremely useful and the coaching technique was much suited to my style of learning. It has made me think about presentation preparation a lot more, how to structure presentations and overall delivery. There are numerous tools and techniques that I will now be using in practice and therefore made the coaching very valuable. The one to one coaching is much more valuable and felt more personal so I could relate to the training and see how it would work in practice. I found Belinda very easy to work with and be coached by straight away, which made the training enjoyable and extremely useful. 10/10.
Very useful workshop – provided a framework to apply to all my presentations. And fun too!
By far the best training I have ever done.
Excellent and informative course. I have taken a lot away from this and will apply it to the business.
By far the best and most useful programme I have been a part of. Excellent stuff.
I really enjoyed this programme and it provided a really practical set of tools to help develop and deliver a really persuasive presentation. Belinda was excellent at making the programme engaging and her coaching and feedback in the 121 sessions was invaluable.
Opus Talent Solutions
Incredibly insightful, giving me a toolbox of knowledge to roll out for many scenarios.
It was a great course. What I also found very helpful was the presentation mapper. I would recommend it to anybody who also struggles with nerves when presenting.
Beautifully presented and extremely well fitted to our needs, and adhered to novice and well as expert presenters.
Absolutely brilliant! My presentation confidence improved by 100% in one day.
Principle Cleaning Services
Empowering and confidence building and providing tools to create better structured presentations.
This is a great programme for those looking for some inspiration when it comes to presenting. It will help you understand the best way to approach presenting, how little things can make a big difference and to improve your confidence and capabilities both to external and internal presentations.
One of the most well run and useful training sessions I have ever done. There are so many useful tips and tricks that I have already begun to implement into my day to day presentations. Adapting this course for online presenting was also invaluable. Belinda is an engaging and knowledgeable facilitator who made the whole experience even more enjoyable.
A great programme for those of all levels and backgrounds. Really helpful and feel like I am now more confident and prepared for presentations in the workplace.
I'll definitely be using the presentation mapper for all presentations going forward in my role. I wish I had it sooner because it has proven to be a really useful tool in distinguishing useful information from interesting information. A skill every strategist needs to have, and I believe this tool will help with that.
I would recommend this course in a heartbeat – I learnt so much & loved every minute!
Engaging, useful & dynamic workshop. Thoroughly enjoyed & fantastic leadership of the day.
This was a great introduction into presenting online. Belinda is incredibly engaging and fantastic at making you feel included in the process, as opposed to being a passenger. Some really simple hints and tricks that will hopefully improve my online presenting!
Belinda has a way of making being out of your comfort zone not such a terrifying place to be! The presentation mapper is an excellent tool and the How to guides were particularly useful. Using the presentation at the beginning of the programme and then at the end to benchmark progress was effective.
Since beginning working with Belinda my confidence has grown enormously. Fear of presenting and nerves have held me back over my career but I now feel able to take it on - and maybe even enjoy it! Since doing the virtual presenting course I have been brave enough to host and present at three webinars and am planning more on the back of my latest coaching. The one-to-one coaching especially was great as it meant we could focus on areas for improvement.
Excellent course that was value-adding from the first minute. Belinda was very intuitive and focused her advice on specific examples from my industry.
This programme was so valuable for people at Graduate level. It is informative + has taught me a skill which will be valuable through my entire career.
If you think you are good at presenting now wait until you have done this training!
A need to do for any person presenting or being in customer/prospect meetings.
Great way to help structure presentations and great way to deliver concise messaging with tools and training provided.
If you want to nail powerful presentations go to secondnature.
SK Chilled Foods
Game changing. Great mentoring and personalised information. Massive knowledge gained in a small amount of time.
Very professional and efficient training programme. I really enjoyed every minute of every session !!
One of the best (if not the best!) programmes pertaining to the topic that I have attended. The programme enhances one's natural character and equips one with the right tools and techniques to deliver compelling presentations while being proactive in creating the content.
The program was excellent in the way it simplified the daunting task of making presentations to simply always start with the destination in mind and making sure all steps you take at the start and during the presentation will always lead to the desired destination.
The course was great. The format and content was very well laid out and logical to follow and to use again and again to perfect presentations. I was amazed at how much more relaxed I was doing a presentation after the training. Belinda is very engaging, knowledgeable and helpful.
A very well structured program...had a solid structure that enabled me to see clearly how I had learned and improved.
The Big Group
Anyone presenting online should attend this course, even if you think you have the bases covered you will learn something new. Perfect for the time we had, and a chance for a 1 2 1 after was great.
Really loved how it was tailored to each individual’s presentation style, really felt like we were given individualised advice.
I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the very interesting and insightful presentation workshop that we had today. Your material has a very high quality and your personal presentation of the material as well as the insights that you have provided are outstanding. I’m really looking forward to our next session.
The programme gives you the science behind the ‘art’ of presenting.
Sonia was amazing, the first teaching voice in a long time that I actually wanted to listen to. Great feedback and enthusiasm. I couldn't fault her. As for the course content, it was easy to understand and engaging. I am already using the tips and tricks in my presentations at work.
A great course and inspiring instructor helped me push my presentation style and skill.
Amazing – everyone who needs to do presentations needs to do this course.
I’ve never seen such an improvement in one person in just two days – wow.
Incredibly valuable, Belinda very quickly understood a very complex situation and was able to target the coaching very precisely.
I found it very valuable and thoroughly enjoyed it. The mapper is especially good – makes complete sense and I will definitely use it a lot in the future. I feel it completely met my objectives and raised my confidence.
