  • Step back to gain new perspectives.
  • Refresh the basics.
  • Discuss with peers from a wide range of businesses.
  • Share and learn experiences.
  • Agree actions for change.

Communication, Communication, Communication.

Effective communication is paramount in any business. It is the key skill for relationship building and people management. Yet many problems exist due to a lack of or poor communication. Despite having been communicating since birth and possibly receiving training, it pays to review what is required.

The purpose of this workshop is to help you revisit and improve your communication skills. It will provide a greater understanding of the components, how they interact, and how to use them for successful outcomes.


You will be able to:

  • Review your knowledge of communication principles.
  • Identify issues of communication in your business.
  • Agree actions for improvement.


  • Defining communication.
  • Communication in the workplace.
  • Improving communication.

Further details of the other sessions will follow.

“I’m thriving working for a much larger organisation and having lots more colleagues to collaborate with. What’s interesting is how much of what I have learned with you is applicable in exactly the same ways, but just on a much larger scale (£9 million turnover!).” Emily Hicks

You can attend an individual session or sign up for the series of four. Each participative and practical workshop comes with learning material and a summary of the discussions. Your investment is £50/session or £160 for four.

“Thank you for presenting with such style and professionalism all the courses you have done during the course of the year. I have enjoyed and gained from all of them.” Violet Lester
