Covid 19 October update – New Courses
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 have designed two online courses 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 courses go beyond this and deals 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.
The first course is called “Screen Presence – how to win hearts and minds online” and is designed for people who have never done any of our presentation-skills courses as well as those who have done part 1 of “Winning Hearts and Minds”.
The second new course is called “Winning Hearts and Minds part 3 – Effective online communication” and is designed for those who have done both parts of the “Winning Hearts and Minds” programme but who want to be able to be as effective online as they are face-to-face.
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 also have online versions of other courses in our portfolio, such as “Adult conversations” and “Stand your ground”.
We had hoped to run open courses of part 1 of “Winning Hearts and Minds” in London in September and November, but have been forced to cancel them under the current situation. Instead, we are running our new course – “Screen Presence” – as an open course on the 11th and 12th of November. Anyone interested should contact us soon to book a place.
We hope to continue running our open courses in 2021.
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!
