Here’s Colin to explain the program.

Colin James was rated the most engaging keynote speaker in the Gartner speaker series in 2018. He has coached leading CEO’s and senior management in the finance, banking, IT, pharmaceutical and others in effective leadership communication skills that engage, influence and inspire action. With this online course, you’ll get training on Colin’s methodology to ensure you are noticed and your message is heard in any situation – every time.


Whether you’re in sales, business development, program or change management, leadership, training or facilitation, this online course gives you the tools to work through the nerves and stress of any communication and not only survive the meeting or pitch but thrive and be memorable.

Great material! As a certified facilitator, and working on and off in the field for almost 30 years, I've been exposed to a lot of training, videos and books... but this is the best online course I've seen on the performance aspect and I think it will help me be even more impactful.

John Roberts - Facilitator, Intel

Despite the varied nature of businesses, we find the same common struggles
affect leaders time and time again…

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

One of the common characteristics of people who progress more rapidly in their career is superb communication.

Access Colin’s world-class training program online to get the support you need when you need it most. 

Good communication continues to be an essential part of everyday business. However, most leading communication courses tend to be taught in-house. This not only requires a considerable investment in your time, and doesn’t give busy people the flexibility they want

Not anymore.

Based on our in-house programs, the Mastering Communication Online Program has been designed to offer business managers, executives and corporate teams the skills and techniques needed to communicate in a way that influences, enthralls and engages – in a flexible, online learning environment.

Filmed live with an audience, you will feel as though you are attending the training in person with Colin!

Once you’ve registered for our effective communication course you’ll get instant online access to our full suite of learning material, including over 35 videos, which can be watched over a 12-month period.

Avoid the stress of last-minute presentations and ensure you have a suite of helpful tools to hand to polish your pitch at the drop of a hat.

I present multiple times per week. I thought that my skill level was okay. This has opened my eyes to a whole new world (& potential upside). Thanks Colin.

David Chalmers - Senior Manager, L.E.K

Posture, energy and generating discussion were much improved and I got rave feedback from my group with many of them coming up to me personally at the close of the two days to say how much they got out of it and how confident they felt in their new manager roles.

Lisa Donohoe - Director, HR Fundamentals

This course is confronting, but brilliant. It will challenge the essence of how you communicate and think. My hope is that I have the discipline to make the techniques and tools live.

Shol Blunstein - Consultant, Pinnacle Group

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 program.



Video training, templates 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.

Module 1 | Diagnose Your Audience

A masterful communicator knows how to diagnose their audience by looking at the outcome from their point of view – what do you want them to feel, think, do and commit to, as a result of your communication? In this module, we unpack how to answer these questions and how to create relevance by addressing their needs.

Module 2 | Design To Be Compelling

Drowning your audience in content is a sure-fire way for your message to be lost. So how can we construct a communication that is compelling and memorable? Discover the secret in this module, where you will learn how to effortlessly formulate a cohesive and fascinating delivery. These tools will help you remember your content, achieve genuine participation and ensure your ideas are taken into the real world.

Module 3 | Deliver To Be Engaging

It’s not only about what you say, but how you say it. In this module, you explore how a conscious and competent alignment of physiology, voice and energy will engage your audience and how to effectively use visual aids to differentiate your presentation style from the masses.

Module 4 | Deliver With Impact

Delivering with optimal impact takes simultaneous attention to multiple communication elements. In this module, learn how to establish a good relationship with your audience and how to utilise the persuasive art of storytelling.

Module 5 | Time To Nail It!

The key difference between a good and masterful communicator is in fine detail. Our final module hones in on how to elevate your language, get the best out of virtual forums and how to nail the open and close of your communication.
