Influence is the currency of today’s business world.

Practical communication training that works

A learning experience unlike any other – our deeply practical training ensures you get to try our methodology in the moment. We emphasise the ‘HOW’, so there is no waiting until you leave to experience the shift! Our participants walk away from our virtual sessions with skills and techniques they can use immediately. Our facilitators have a deep wealth of corporate experience and their dedicated preparation prior to the virtual sessions ensures they can tailor content to meet the needs of everyone in the virtual classroom.

Built on 25-years of deep research, the core communication methodology was designed by our founder Colin James – an introvert! Over time he built a suite of techniques that enabled him to overcome his introversion and shine on stage; he is now a well respected global speaker. We know that communication is not an attribute you are born with (or without), but a skill you can develop.
