A one-day workshop to build your workplace confidence.

Have you ever noticed how confident people have the power to change the energy in a room, just like that?


Confidence is something all employees and entrepreneurs need.  If you can’t communicate with confidence, you will not have the trust of customers or colleagues.

Think about it, would you ever let a nervous dentist near your teeth?

Of course, you wouldn’t. It’s easy to spot someone who is not confident, you’ve done it many times.

When you’re lacking confidence, opportunities to lead, influence and achieve your goals pass you by.

Do nerves set in and unsettle you when you’re about to pitch an idea or project?
Do you get a little palm-sweaty when you need to present results to the board or your boss?
Does your mind fill with self-doubt when you’re about to negotiate your pay or give feedback? 

The Confident Communicator combines some of the useful techniques taught in The Colin James Method’s Mastering Communication program with a deeper focus on building your authority and presence. It is condensed into a 1-day workshop that gives you all the skills you need to get your message heard and get the outcome you need.

This workshop is for you if you want to:

Quickly improve your ability to pitch an idea or project

Eloquently and confidently state your case and to demonstrate why you deserve to get what you’re asking for

Wow and inspire your colleagues when you present ideas, results or initiatives

Dramatically increase your ability to communicate with your teams and stakeholders when moving into leadership or sales roles

After The Confident Communicator, you will be able to step up and speak up, influence an outcome and lead more effectively.

Watch this short clip to get a quick overview of the day from certified The Colin James Method coach and The Confident Communicator facilitator Erica Bagshaw.
