Negotiation skills - Teach your team to communicate like hostage negotiators

We're all taught to talk. None of us are taught to listen. And yet decades of experience in crisis situations have taught me that all effective communication starts with listening.Listening is a skills that's seriously undervalued in the business world.

After the session you'll be able to
- get people to open up
- know precisely what to listen for 
- understand how to interpret the intelligence you've gained

You'll be able to sell your ideas using your prospect's most deeply held beliefs rather than your own. It's amazingly effective. To succeed, all you have to do is listen as if lives depended on it.
More details will be posted here soon.

Fearless Communication by Michael Comyn

This course equips you with the tools to speak confidently with the minimal use of PowerPoint in a structured and effective manner. This is also excellent as a foundation for high level presentations and conference presentation and trade shows. 

Step by step, we take you through the structure and planning of a presentation and then through the delivery and review process. A large part of the course is devoted to practice delivery with “Masterclass” reviews and feedback with Michael Comyn and with large groups we encourage mini presentations in smaller groups.
