8-Part Audio Training Course on How to Start Your Presentation With Control & Impact Every Time!


Preview of the "8 High Impact Ways to Start" audio lessons

Part 1 of this 10 part audio product introduces the principles, thoughts and motivations contained throughout to help you open with impact and control.

** SPOILER ALERT** The first 10 seconds are deliberate... make sure you listen on.


We all put so much work into the content of what we want to say or deliver in presentations, speeches, training delivery, meetings, etc.  But we then leave it as the steak without the sizzle!

Once we have created the content, it is vital that we open up and close with impact and control, and so the focus should always then switch to how we are going to start and finish what we have to say and share.  That way we know that people are connected, have the information in context, are keen to hear what is about to be said and will act on what they have just heard in whatever way is appropriate.

This training product covers in detail 8 key ways that we at Open Dawes Training have identified to really make a difference when you start speaking in public (Finishing is another module on its own within the full training programme).  Try them all and find what works best for you!

Following an introduction (preview video above) from Chris Dawes - founder and creator of Open Dawes Training Ltd, the audio training included in this online training product is made up of multiple audio lessons to listen in the app, via your web browser, or to download to your device.

Chris Dawes would never have believed that by conquering the nerves, and finetuning his ability to give business presentations (and training sales teams to do the same) he would land a dream role.

Because Chris’s other passion is motorsports, and he still can’t quite believe that he’s paid to commentate on his favourite sport, be a Master of Ceremony at a wide variety of events, and present on TV and Radio. Chris is also a voiceover artist – so you may have heard him even if you’ve not yet met him. Follow the link to find out a bit more about Chris and his other life as a commentator .

Chris's story of opening new and unexpected doors shows that anything is possible, and he created the Open Dawes Training courses and philosophies based on his own experiences and the opportunities it afforded him. So, if you aspire to see what doors you can open from growing in confidence, willingness, and ability to speak in public, the team at Open Dawes are here to help.
