A Five Day Leadership Communication Programme

A 5-day in-house Leadership Communications Seminar suitable for leaders operating at the highest levels. It has been successfully delivered at senior executive level across the globe to huge critical acclaim.

Our key objective is to help leaders to consciously create the impact they choose. Delegates are invited to work holistically, from the head, the gut and the heart to develop their unique leadership style and create a step change in their ability to generate impact and meaning both in and out of the workplace.

This Programme is the basis of our flagship in-house, tailored programme.

For those that would like to attend a public course offering we recommend a series of our two-day Leadership programme, one day Strategic Planning, one day Presentation Skills and half day Networking programme.  We run these courses on consecutive days several times a year and they have been popular with delegates that want a more comprehensive Leadership programme.

We explore the five key elements of effective business leadership on a journey of consecutive one-day modules:

  • The Foundations of Leadership and Personal Branding
  • Leadership Communication, Influencing and Difficult Messages
  • Strategic Planning
  • Presenting with Flair
  • Building Business Relationships and Networking
