Overview

Want to communicate with power, impact and confidence? That’s why you’re here, right?

The aim of our course is not to tell you to correct your communication “weaknesses,” it’s to help you make changes to subconscious communication behaviours that can undermine your confidence and knowledge at work

We know there’s no “best” communication style for every workplace interaction, however our long-standing Confident Communication for Women in the Workplace course has helped hundreds of professionals develop and embody the skills needed to communicate with confidence and credibility.

Through innovative role-play scenarios in various communication settings led by Vocal Communications expert, Anne Walsh, dive into numerous communication styles and language choices that explore communicating from a position of knowledge and confidence.

Leave the day with a transformative toolkit full of performance-based techniques involving the body, breath and voice, helping you to exert a more commanding presence.
