Presenting to groups can be one of the most stressful business activities. Reputations and credibility are at stake, audiences can be challenging and preparation time may be limited. It is therefore not surprising that this has been the most frequently requested skill development area. Whether promoting your ideas, influencing others, getting proposals accepted, presenting data or winning new business, the ability to deliver confident and impactful presentations is paramount.
Delivering your message in a clear, relevant and meaningful way for a range of different audiences requires skills, as does handling nerves. These skills can be learned. Our proven approach is guaranteed to improve participant presentation skills, regardless of the experience of the presenter. The results can be truly transformational.
We also provide training on more specialised presenting skills including webcasting and remote presenting, and storyboarding.
Compared to presenting, facilitating is about saying less and achieving more. More information, interaction and input from the audience. And this takes a whole new set of skills.
As the workplace becomes more culturally, behaviourally and educationally diverse, more versatile interaction is essential to the success of any organisation. Social Styles helps you identify your own preferred communication style and the styles of others, and how to use this knowledge to develop far more effective and productive working relationships. You will complete an online profile prior to the workshop and will benefit from two reports which provide objective feedback on your preferred behavioural style as well as your versatility.
Many organisations invest in an internal training resource, either full time trainers or a range of subject matter experts with significant levels of technical knowledge but who do not consider themselves to be professional trainers.
The challenge is to recognise the specialist knowledge and experience these people have and also the importance of developing their communication and influencing skills in the context of delivering training. The aim is to maximise people’s learning through creating and delivering engaging and inspiring training events. Without a professional trainer accreditation programme, internally led training could become a series of PowerPoint presentations which can be repetitive to deliver and, unfortunately just as forgettable for the recipients.
Our full Accreditation programme includes the following:
Everyone works on projects but few people are trained as project managers. That’s a recipe for disaster or at least busted budgets and long-lost deadlines. The challenge with project working is rarely a rogue Gantt chart. It is far more often the other people working on, or affected by, the project. Which is why this unique programme was designed.
Whether you are a leader, manager, sports coach or parent the skill of coaching helps you get the best out of others. When done well, coaching positively affects retention, results, morale and motivation. When done badly, the outputs are very different!
The challenge for many is having the wisdom to know what approach to use, the skill to be flexible and the rapport to be able to coach others and provide meaningful feedback. Our coaching programmes have helped transform potential into performance for over 30 years.

Being more in control of your time and tasks is a skill crucial to success in the hectic world of today. In both the workplace and as more people work from home, boundaries become blurred with personal relationships and mental health suffering as a result.
