As well as working with groups of colleagues we run Open Workshops, where individuals can come and take advantage of this exciting training. These sessions are open to everyone with a webcam and a Zoom account. You will have the opportunity to ask frank questions, develop fresh skills and build your confidence away from the scrutiny of your peers, under the supervision of a coach with 20 years of experience in making groups safe, creative, inclusive and playful.

Online workshop 1 June. 2:00pm – 4:00pm (UK time)

You can’t meet your clients in person. You can only check in with your team as a box on the screen. An urgent new business pitch has to be delivered remotely.

More than ever before, your ability to hold your audience with the power of your words is absolutely critical.

Expert communicators are wonderful storytellers. They use the techniques of novelists, screenwriters, journalists and raconteurs to select and structure their material in ways that will inspire, excite and influence their audience.

This isn’t simply a knack, or the fruit of a lifetime’s study and practice – it’s possible to make rapid progress with some easy techniques.

In this two hour interactive seminar, you will learn…

  • How to find the “spine” of your story, and what to do with it once you’ve found it.
  • How to simplify complex ideas without being accused of “dumbing down”.
  • How to make dry material compelling and big ideas extraordinary.
  • How to use visual language to paint pictures in the minds of your audience.
  • How to create stories which resonate with other people – even total strangers.

At the end of the workshop you will receive a  20 page PDF Insight Summary and a Follow-Up programme of exercises so that you can apply your insights straight away.

Whether you are delivering training, keeping your team united and motivated, pitching for new business or making your case in the boardroom or the media, these principles will enhance your ability to communicate with clarity, power and empathy.

Tough situation (in lockdown) and only one hour – but you gave lots of insights and shared some ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of.

Thanks so much for the workshop, it was really refreshing to experience a true online workshop, rather than just a webinar! Social interaction at this time is really welcome and allowed us to stay engaged with the content.
