Thank you so much for your presentation on Thursday – it was insightful, with loads of take-aways, and incredibly practical.

communication skills

Do you sometimes feel no one is listening to you? Would you like more influence in your work? Are you suddenly required to speak more in public?

Communication is one of the highest-rated skills for employees in the information age. Our success relies on our ability to motivate our people, share ideas and persuade others to act. Whether you're leading a team, implementing change or pitching an idea,  this training is perfect for you.

In this workshop, we'll cover:

 

 -      How communication works

 -      Audience awareness

 -      Confidence, authenticity and trust

 -      Active listening

 -      Challenging conversations

Unleashing your inner poet

Would you like to be more creative and connected in your communication? Do you slip into repeating the same clunky words—the rusty chains of cliché, the manacles of management speak?


Poets look at familiar things in new ways and share surprising connections with our audiences. Thinking like a poet sparks your creativity and originality, making your words stand out.

In this workshop, we'll cover:

 -     The perils of abstract language

 -     How to connect through concreteness

 -     Using all the senses to bring words to life

 -     Metaphors for understanding

 -     Being memorable through the sounds of

       words

Presentation skills

Do you need to present to an audience, pitch to an investor or brief a committee? Do you want to be known as a great speaker, excite your audience and convey memorable messages?  

 

Learn the techniques of great presenters so you can escape the tedium of death-by-PowerPoint and become a confident, sought-after speaker.

In this workshop, we'll cover:

 -     Audience analysis

 -     Presentation structure and content

 -     Tools to amplify your message

 -     Controlling nerves

 -     Story telling and creating an emotional

       connection
