Effective Communication

Learn how to present with impact using a framework focussing on strategic planning and problemn solving

The Challenge

Whatever you do in business, a good story can help you do it better.  In today's fast-paced business environment, there are times when you need to be heard. Times you need to be in full control of the messaging and demonstrate you have a response to a problem, business need...or unseat a competitor. 

To develop a truly powerful 'story,' you need a compelling back-story.  Use of strong metaphor's or analogy can help.  When they work, all the emotion and meaning you need can be delivered in a single image or word.  Your firsthand or witnessed experience is the best raw material for your story - be it work winning, strategy communication or motivational speaking.  

  • Charisma: Are you seen as an 'action-based' individual with a passion for 'making things happen'? 
  • Creativity: Can you bring high-energy to your presentations, the catalyst for great storytelling? 
  • Persuasive: Are able to engage your audience's senses early and often? Arouse your listener's curiosity? 
  • Listen Actively: Are you willing to engage with your audience and manage potential disruptive arguments?
  • An Inclusive Operator: Do you understand how to motivate others?  Is collaboration something you are passionate about?


2-Day Effective Communication Masterclass

During a 1-2 day facilitated workshop we aim to gain a deep understanding of 'internal and external communication' within your organization.  We can then help your people, teams and leaders develop and use customer insights or issues and turn them into positives. 

This can include helping them to get real clarity around risk and value management, and be able to inspire everyone into action.  Learn techniques to craft compelling arguments, capture the audience's attention,  and deliver successful outcomes. 
  • Align expectations and vision of different stakeholders.
  • Learn how to use your voice to command attention, leverage trust and credibility. 
  • Be aware that your body is talking before your tongue moves. 
  • Empower your audience to tell your story forward (the referral engine!) 
  • Create a multiplier effect.  Seek champions in your audience who can tell your story through their own words. 
Effective Communication Health Check
  1. Title 1
Before we do the actual communication strategy sessions we recommend a team 'Health Check' on the current state of the communications effectiveness within your organization (e.g. policy, strategy, process, culture,..). Studies show organizations with strong leadership communication skills are 13 times more likely to outperform their competition, and three times more likely to retain their most talented employees, encompassing; 

  • Decision-making techniques
  • Frameworks for planning, decision-making and problem-solving
  • Discover creativity in others
  • Resilience and positivity
  • Identifying and handling conflict
  • Self-awareness and NLP
  • Feedback reporting 
  • High-Performance Team Assessment (360 Degrees) 

On a recent engagement, we worked with the Sales Director of a £50m turnover, specialist contract to deliver a conference presentation. We offered support through all stages of the keynote development, offering a well-constructed, engaging, and authentic presentation.  Key steps included:

  • Conducting a presentation audit
  • Audience analysis
  • Story development
  • Slide development and content management
  • Coaching delivery 
  • Effective management of Q & A.

The result was a well-constructed, engaging, and authentic presentation.  After the conference, the client was asked to return and speak at a renowned international conference on constructing excellence (Intelligent Transport Infrastructure)
