Earlier this month LRM Planning sponsored and worked with the RTPI Devon Cornwall and Somerset Young Planners to run their “Planning Committee & Presentation Skills” virtual CPD event.
The event was supported by 3 knowledgeable speakers:
Will Grover from Simply Amazing Training provided helpful advice on how to present confidently, in any forum, through body language, phrasing and presentation structure. Ros Eastman from Teignbridge District Council shared her experience and shared tips on how to prepare for Committee from her 20+ years as a Planner. Councillor Patrick Nicholson from Plymouth City Council highlighted his expectations of planners presenting for any party (for or against an application) from sitting on Planning Committee for over 15 years.
The event was well attended and LRM’s own Opani Mudalige delivered a mock presentation during the event, to demonstrate the advice garnered from the speakers.
LRM Planning were delighted to sponsor and to have been a part of the event and look forward to hearing more Confident, Clear and Compelling presentations at Planning Committee from hereon in!
