It’s all about communication…
For years we’ve been helping people in business to communicate better, whether it’s in meetings, delivering sales pitches, on stage at conferences or talking to clients. Now the way in which we all communicate has changed completely. Video calls which used to be occasional are now commonplace. Meetings which could only take place in person now happen remotely. For many people, the change has been very difficult. We can help.
Our new podcast…
The Power of Stories
Arranging your material so that it’s clear, compelling and memorable sounds like a daunting task. But you do those things effortlessly when you tell your friends a story. We’ll show you how to consciously apply those unconscious skills and explain just where stories get their power from. Also available as an open workshop.
Technical Wizardry for Dummies
We are using livestreaming software, like the YouTubers do, in order to take more nuanced control of how images and digital material are being broadcast over Zoom. And we can show you how to set it up. Also available as an open workshop.
Negotiating and relationship-building
Reaching an agreement is harder than ever when you can’t physically look someone in the eyes at the start of the conversation or shake their hand at the end of it. But with a few simple concepts you can find those elusive win-wins faster and more often. Also available as an open workshop.
Our work is led by Spontaneity Shop directors Tom Salinsky and Alex MacLaren but we also have access to a pool of other talented trainers, speakers, comedians and actors, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if the job you have in mind needs more people.
And more besides
We also have access to a network of experienced trainers, presenters, writers, actors and teachers whose talents and knowledge we can draw on. We’ve put together large teams of trainers to work on big projects and managed the whole process for our clients, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if your event needs more people.
We can deliver this material in single hour-long sessions, or interactively over a number of days. We can coach your people one-on-one in senior programmes, work with larger groups in a web seminar setting, or we can dial into your web conference or away-day. And we like a challenge so if you have an idea for something and you think we might be right for it, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Deborah Frances-White runs her own practice which covers some of the personal impact material but also specialises in diversity and inclusion.
