LABtokyo Presentation

At LABtokyo we champion clear, effective, resonant communication.

We understand that these communicative qualities are never more important than when we are presenting our ideas, concepts, products or services.

The LABtokyo Presentation sessions are for people whose goals are to make themselves clearly understood, to be able to gain trust from the audience and ultimately to be able to influence the outcome of the presentation to meet their objectives.

In our sessions we focus on all aspects of presenting or the aspects of presenting that is most useful to our client. These typically include:

  • planning, structuring and designing the presentation
  • functional and resonant language
  • confidence and body language
  • cross-cultural implications
  • presenter/audience interaction

How will our sessions help?

By the end of each course you will be able to:

  • catch and hold the audiences’ attention
  • reduce your presentation material to the essential elements
  • present complex information in a more interesting and memorable way
  • make a clear distinction between what you say and what you show, in other words no longer reading from your slides
  • present in a more relaxed, confident and compelling manner

How long are the sessions?

There is no fixed session duration as the sessions are typically designed once we understand the client’s needs. Previously we have run courses over a minimum of three hours in a one off session to a current maximum of 36 hours at one hour per week. We value flexibility and customisation above all else and are always happy to meet to discuss how we can design the best course to suit your particular needs.

 

Copywriting, Revision and Other Services

We have provided copywriting services to a number of clients both in Japan and overseas, these include boutique and 5 star international hotel brands, cultural and religious facilities, international architectural and design groups and specialist design publications.

We would be happy to provide more information and samples of our work upon request.

As communication specialists with a commitment to concise, clear, yet eloquent language, we are happy to provide copywriting, presentation design and production, assistance with international pitching, copy-revision etc, alternatively, we will be happy to discuss any other ways you may feel we can help. 

We are highly ethical in our approach to work. If there is something you feel we can help with, please do not hesitate to ask us. If we can help we would love to; if we feel we can’t help, we will politely decline.

Fee subject to brief and scope of work.

 
 
 

LABtokyo Specialist

The Specialist Course is designed for clients with clear communicative objectives, for example the need to present to international audiences, to speak at overseas conferences, to write academic papers for international journals…

With the Specialist Course we focus on developing the skills, experience and confidence in communication that is essential to engage with an international, specialist community at an elevated level of English.

All materials for the Specialist Course are written by LABtokyo and specifically personalised to suit each client's learning needs and objectives.

The Specialist Course is suited to both private one to one or groups of clients who share the same organisation, industry sector or profession and with a common communication goal.

 

LABtokyo Generalist

The key objective for this course is to promote clear and fluent communication, by helping the client build the confidence they need to engage with others, in English across a wide range of personal or professional situations.

The Generalist Course is based on an agreed learning text and/or personalised materials. The text will come from a variety of English Language texts readily available in Japan and which is selected to be appropriate for the participant’s English Language skill level and learning objectives. As with the Specialist Course, where necessary there will be some degree of customisation of the course and augmentation of learning materials to suit the participant’s needs and progress.

Whether the client prefers to use a text book or to have the course written for them, every LAB generalist course is always personalised to the client’s specific needs.

This course is suited to both private one to one or group study.
