Communicate with Impact

We started with a question: why don't more companies just say what they mean when talking to their employees? And then we wondered why business information is often is so losng-winded and – dare we say it – dull? You want your employees to understand where your business is going, and how they can help you get there, so it's best to tell them straight.

Communicate with Impact will show you how to communicate in a way that is personal and direct with impact and clarity – so that your people know you mean business. The workshop covers:

  • A simple and powerful message map you can apply to all your messages
  • The neuroscience behind storytelling and why emotions drive decisions not logic
  • How to communicate so that people rally to your cause
  • The power of simplicity, structure and simple language  

This is a practical workshop where participants bring along an important communication challenge to work on. We apply theory and best practice to help you uncover new ways to engage the audience.

Who’s it for?

Communication professionals, HR managers and anyone who needs to communicate with maximum impact.

We customise this workshop for senior leaders who need to develop a compelling story of change and for middle managers to help them support and embed change across the business.

What will it help you do better?

  • Communicate to actively shape the future of the organisation
  • Design messages that motivate your audience to support your cause
  • Become a leader who can communicate authentically and inspire others

What they told us

"The workshop and coaching developed my skills and confidence to communicate effectively. My messages are now noticeably more concise and tailored to the audience. The coaching sessions enabled me to practice my skills and change the way I communicate. I fully endorse the course and the approach".
