Presentation Skills Training: Speak with Impact

Soft skills training is today’s greatest professional development challenge. Communications skills indicate important leadership qualities, and yet, as a fundamental soft skill, presentation skills training often takes a backseat to technical emphasis. Today, communications skills are imperative to impart technical expertise and knowledge.

This applies to members of every organizational level, whether explaining material to direct reports and colleagues, presenting to senior leaders, or during exchanges between senior executives.

Accessible Pyramid Principle Training

At Corporate Class, we provide a streamlined, accessible approach to renowned Pyramid Principle training. We remain true to its essential structure while equipping participants to gain a swift mastery of techniques that deliver message clarity.

The Pyramid Principle Background

In the 1970s, when Harvard MBA graduate Barbara Minto was the first woman consultant at McKinsey, she developed a revolutionary presentation skills training technique called the Pyramid Principle. By starting with the conclusion, her approach literally inverted presentations!

The intent was to provide McKinsey’s consultants with a decisive edge – to structure reports that made an immediate impact on clients within a logical framework. Today, it’s still widely recognized as the gold standard for building effective presentations.

Our accessible approach utilizes Pyramid Principle foundations organized in comprehensible, easy-to-implement techniques.
