Not only has this provided me tools to be a confident communicator, it has shown me the value I can offer.Theresa Nguyen - Senior Associate Commercial Lending, Commonwealth Bank of Australia
So much valuable information packed into one day! Erica made the training really enjoyable and held my attention with her insights and demonstrations throughout the day.Beth Storck- Creative Lead, Brand Chemistry
Outstanding on all levels. Has made a huge and measurable difference to the impact of our team in the market place. I've attended plenty of courses where great theory was taught, however the practical implementation was very limited. This is the first time I've seen real value where theory meets application and I can definitely see myself using many of the techniques learned.Nadeem Hussain - Investment Manager, AustralianSuper

Michael Ziccone – Capability and Performance Manager, ANZ
“On behalf of ANZ, I approached Colin James and his team to develop the presentation and influencing skills of our Business Development Managers, Sales Managers and Senior Leaders within our home loans distribution business unit (~100 employees in total). Initially, we approached several vendors for tender but only the pitch from Colin James and Erica Bagshaw was done in a way that encompassed a methodology that we wanted to impart to our employees.
Delivering the Mastering Communication Program gave our staff the skills they needed in order to differentiate themselves in a marketplace where it’s difficult to distinguish yourself from your competitors. Post-delivery, the ongoing coaching, master classes and webinars have helped embed the skills. Importantly, the way in which the learning is delivered is easily digestible and was embraced readily by the participants.
The Colin James Method® program of work has led to a noticeable change in the way our business teams approach all of their communication and it’s made a marked difference to their capacity to influence. In addition, there has been a noticeable uplift in our sales performance, resilience and morale, as our employees recognise the time and investment ANZ has made in their personal development.
I would not hesitate in recommending the team at The Colin James Method®, that is why we have extended our relationship with Colin, Erica, Andrew and Kerrie into 2015 with a new program of work.”
