Covid 19 update
In these strange, challenging times, we have all had to adapt to extraordinary changes in every area of our lives.
We hope that, whatever your circumstances, you are finding ways to cope, getting the support you need, and looking forward to a brighter future.
Like many companies, we have had to curb some of our activities. In the current climate, it has been impossible to run training courses like ours where there is so much face-to-face interaction. Our coaching programmes, on the other hand, which were often carried out online already, have continued unabated, supporting leaders and teams.
Regarding skills training, we have not been idle, and have taken this opportunity to expand what we have to offer. As Charles Darwin said: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change”.
At the request of several of our clients, we are in the process of designing an online course dealing with presenting and conducting meetings using online platforms such as Zoom, MS Teams, Skype etc. Of course, you can Google hints and tips on how to arrange your laptop, mute yourself and so on. However, our course will go beyond this and deal with overcoming the communication problems that online meetings and presentations create. Our background in theatre and television gives us the knowledge of the differences between face-to-face communication and communicating via a screen. Being able to communicate effectively and efficiently is straightforward enough, if you know what to do.
Life in lockdown – despite having certain business advantages such as less reliance on travel – has nevertheless shown the need for face-to-face interaction. Coupled with this, many of our clients over the years have asked us about taking our presentations skills course “Winning Hearts and Minds” to an even more advanced stage. Consequently, we are in the process of creating “Winning Hearts and Minds part 3” which takes speeches and presentations – in both content and delivery – to a higher, expert, cutting-edge level.
We are also working on a “Winning Hearts and Minds” app for those who have already completed all or part of the “Winning Hearts and Minds” programme.
We will announce when these courses and app are available.
In the meantime, we are hoping to run open courses of part 1 of “Winning Hearts and Minds” in London in September (9th and 10th) and November (11th and 12th). Anyone interested in these industry-leading courses – which will be run according to safe, government guidelines – should contact us soon to book a place.
We know why you’re here. You need your people to be the best. But there’s a critical skills gap. As communicators they could be more compelling. Whether facing out or in, presenting to clients, building relationships or managing teams, they could deliver key messages better. But they need expert help.
So you are here because you have heard on good authority that nobody coaches compelling business communication better – not even as well!
