the storytelling and presenting for impact programme

for presenters, educators and key opinion leaders

Presentations can be high stakes
Even the most experienced presenters can feel anxious when facing an audience.  Lengthy, text heavy slides are time-consuming to create and challenging to deliver, making it hard for the audience to stay engaged. This can result in your key messages, product/service benefits or business strategies being overlooked or forgotten due to outdated presentation methods.

Harness the Impact of Visual Presentations

Learn how to capture an audience's attention and enhance your presentation techniques. Our immersive workshop will help you to craft memorable key messages and engaging presentations.

Toby Trimble

EBVS and RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and AnalgesiaBVM BVS, BVMedSci, MVM, PgCert, Dip. ECVAA, MRCVS

Toby is an RCVS and EBVS Specialist in veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia and the founder of Trimble Group. He focuses on making veterinary education engaging, visual, and memorable. With his team, Toby has created almost eight hundred CPD videos and live broadcasts. He works with clients internationally to improve their key messaging, on-camera presence, and visual presentation structure.

“The Storytelling workshop was amazing. We got pushed out of our comfort zones in a controlled and supportive environment and got to work on our individual worries. For me getting on stage/in front of people and those first 2-3min are the most nerve-wracking. We worked on several tools to transform that energy into a positive one… What a simple but effective way to empower yourself. I’m looking forward to a follow up. ”

Anna Cronin, EBVS Specialist in Small AnimalSurgery,
Wear Referrals Veterinary Hospital

“Fascinating and valuable workshop in a stunning location that really helps you clear your head and open up to a different approach. Both informative and interactive I came away hugely enthused and engaged to re-evaluate how I present information to others. ”

Claire Hodgson, British Veterinary Chronic Illness Support Charity

“A fantastic workshop from someone who is leading the way with educational methods. Not only did we learn the theory of storytelling, but the importance of production values in teaching. Storytelling promotes understanding. Production values capture your audience's attention. ”

Mark Bowen, Director of Education, European Board of Veterinary Specialisation

Neil Mottram

"Toby has a vision to make education engaging and finally end the dreary powerpointlessness or teaching. He has the skills and understanding to develop high-quality resources and work with people to bring their storytelling abilities to life. It is what veterinary education needs and deserves and it is what will drive engagement in the post covid hybrid model of learning."

Professor Mark Bowen
Director of Education at European Board of Veterinary Specialisation

"Working with Toby and his team at Trimble Productions was an absolute pleasure and I know that we would not hesitate to use his services again. Toby was able to instill the power of storytelling into our project and transform what we had into something far more impactful, meaningful and memorable. Well done Trimble, we look forward to working with you again in the future."
