ABOUT THE ONLINE PROGRAM
The secret to building greater confidence and engagement
Our business or work environment is becoming increasingly dynamic and more demanding. Only those people who stay nimble and responsive will progress. A big part of this is having the ability to communicate and influence across divisions and to achieve more with less.
At The Colin James Method® we work with executives and managers across a variety of business areas, including banking, insurance, IT, pharmaceuticals and government. We help them to communicate fundamentals such as strategy, performance updates, policy changes and the like.
We also work with people in sales needing to facilitate better quality conversations and presentations for improved customer relationship and results.
Change managers, trainers and facilitators often attend our program to lift their effective communication skills, in manage diverse groups and ensure cohesive outcomes in an engaging and memorable way.
Despite the varied nature of businesses, we find the same common struggles

Difficult to get buy in from stakeholders
Nervous about presenting to senior leaders
Too much content, never enough time to present it
Communication being sent but not getting cut through
Feeling awkward in front of large groups
Being overlooked for a promotion in favour of someone more polished

ABOUT THE COLIN JAMES METHOD®
With over 25 years of experience, Colin James is recognised as one of Australia’s leading corporate speakers and facilitators. He was recipient of Australian Educator of the Year, 2008. This award recognised his achievements as an educator over 23 years, starting in 1988 at the Australian Quadriplegic Association where, as Training Manager, he designed a ground-breaking, 18-week Tertiary Rehabilitation Program.
From a young age, Colin’s dream was to be a teacher and he realised that to be an effective and engaging teacher he needed one key skill, that was to master the art of communication. To understand what constitutes excellent communication he studied the best communicators he could find.
He studied the way that they held the attention of their audience and how, regardless of the content, they had the ability to deliver their message in such a way as to profoundly influence the way people think, act and behave. From this he developed The Colin James Method® which incorporates all of these elements in a high-value, engaging and rewarding 12-month journey on the Mastering Communication Online PAVERS® Program.
ONLINE PROGRAM TIMELINE
Video training and fortnightly focus emails are provided throughout each module to help you progress.
You can read what we cover in each module below and review the 12-month timeline to the right.
A masterful communicator knows HOW to take ideas, thoughts and content and deliver this in an engaging, meaningful manner. Module One lays down the foundations on which you will build your skill and ability as an excellent communicator. You will be given an overview of the program, what to expect. Then you will dive into some presentation design skills that will become essential frameworks for you to work with any time you are preparing to speak.
We communicate using two primary ‘tools,’ namely our bodies and our voices. Module Two will focus on these two in detail. The term ‘Body Language’ has been around forever because the way we stand, sit, use our hands, move and our many, many facial expressions, communicates a wealth of information. We unpack all this in the first few videos. Your voice is unique to you however it is also an instrument you can learn to ‘play’ (or use) more effectively. Have you heard your voice on tape and been a tad surprised? You are not alone. The final videos explore the wonderful world of Auditory communication and how to turn your voice into an asset.
Communication is an exchange between people…in other words, it’s the business of relationship. Module Three focuses exclusively on Relationship dynamics. This is a very practical module that will immediately enhance your communication effectiveness. People are complex. Connecting meaningfully with your audience, your colleagues or customers is a sophisticated process…building a relationship of trust, respect and openness is a core skill that all masterful communicators demonstrate.
Language is everything. This is truly the information age. Never in human history have we have access to oceans of information at a few touches of a keyboard. Information is packaged in language of course. Module Four will focus on the art and craft of eloquence – how we can use language in fresh, engaging and zesty ways. These videos will look at specific skills to enhance your language effectiveness. This will be followed by videos exploring the magic of story-telling. Great storytellers understand the power and weight of language – painting pictures and scenes with words – connecting with our hearts and minds.
In a world dominated by PowerPoint (and it’s equivalents) Module Five will explore how to use Visual Aids beyond the crutch of projecting content heavy slides onto a screen in front of a dazed and disconnected audience. We close with learning how to close a presentation powerfully and memorably. The final video links it all together and launches you into your work and life as a confident, capable, engaging and influential communicator.
