Leadership communication training

Effective leaders have excellent communication skills.

This enables them to better deliver complex information to a wide range of audiences, inspire, manage difficult conversations and corporate change, and accelerate their own and their teams’ careers.

We have helped leaders from organisations of all sizes to communicate more effectively and hone their management style, whether they need to discuss complex issues like redundancies and plant closures with large audiences, create cultural change, communicate better online, want to improve their one-to-one skills or be best prepared to appear at parliamentary hearings, public inquiries and before regulatory bodies. 

By helping delegates to understand how different audiences respond to varying communication styles our training, which can be delivered face-to-face or online, helps leaders to become more naturally influential.

Delegates also learn to use their communication skills to build stronger working relationships, influence those around them, encourage their teams to devise solutions, improve their performance and ultimately become more rounded leaders that people want to follow.

Our training is typically delivered by a qualified leadership coach who will sometimes be supported by one of our current working journalist tutors.

Why do we use journalists in this training? They have a unique understanding of what makes audiences tick and how to maintain their attention. Their expertise covers voice coaching, delivering presentations, presenting online and in person, managing nerves, networking skills and increasing personal impact. They are ideally placed to help you find your own communication style.

All our courses are bespoke. Our dedicated account managers will work with you to understand your needs and deliver a course which will ensure you communicate with confidence, cohesion and clarity to clients and colleagues.

We have been around for 35 years and have helped thousands of people to develop their leadership and management style, communications skills, knowledge and confidence to handle a wide range of audiences.
