A Master Class in Effective Communications

"The following statements outline some of the concerns delegates have expressed on my Communication Skills courses over the years:

  • "No one seems to listen to what I have to say at team meetings."
  • "I sometimes feel undermined by certain team members and feel that I am not taken seriously as their line manager."
  • "On occasion I feel that my contributions and suggestions at senior meetings go unheard."

I thrive on the opportunity of working with delegates to help them overcome their Communication Skills concerns.  Drawing on 25+ years of personal and professional global experience of working with a range of audiences, I help delegates to "practically" maximise the impact of their communication to a variety of people, on a range of differing occasions, giving them the confidence they need to make a real difference to how they are perceived by others within the workplace." - Tom Courtney
