Course Overview

Communication skills are essential in the professional world, yet they are also great life skills. This is true in whatever context a student works in. How well this information can be transmitted and received is a measure of how good our communication skills are. Communicative competence, the focus of our training, is the total of a person’s communicative skills, their mindset and their knowledge. Working relationships and work results form a virtuous circle: develop one and you will develop the other. This is driven purely by communication.

Presenting is a vital skill in the modern workplace, whether it is a formal presentation to a large audience, a team briefing, a speech, an online meeting or being the “face” of the organization. It is vital we develop a suitable style that fits with our aims, audience and culture while being confident in the information we provide and how we communicate it. A range of strategies and approaches will be integrated into the training for development of audience rapport, communication, confidence and presentation style. This guarantees a genuine, lasting development of every trainee’s skills for achieving real results with their presentations.
