Harper Adams University College played host to 20 Nuffield Farming Scholars recently who attended a course on presentation delivery.
The two-day course prepares the scholars for their presentations which they will give at the Nuffield Conference the end of October. The presentations are culmination of 18 months of study and world travel looking at key issues affecting the farming and food Industry.
The course involves presentation and communication skills as well as confidence building, managing time and personal coaching. Nuffield Scholars go on from the Nuffield Conference to speak at many industry meetings and events, from YFC and discussion groups to major international industry conferences. For many, the Presentation Skills course is their first taste of public speaking.
Simon Thelwell, who organised and delivered the training, said: “We are delighted that the Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust has chosen Harper Adams to complete their Nuffield training, this is the 2nd year that we have delivered the Presentation training course. The scholars are a real inspiration and have some really positive messages for the industry”.
John Stones, Nuffield Director, added: “Harper Adams was the perfect choice for our training course. Nuffield expects high standards of our scholars and the support and training they receive. We are delighted that Simon and the Harper Adams staff are real professionals, the University College is centrally located, has great facilities and an attractive campus setting that all contribute to create the perfect environment for our course. We have already confirmed our booking for two courses in 2012.”
