Pradeep trained as an actor at the Rose Bruford College, which lead him to be interested in how different people and personalities communicate. Now, he facilitates to allow people to think about situations and behaviour differently, creating more inclusive working environments and increasing emotional intelligence at all levels of organisational hierarchy.
Pradeep believes practical training is one of the best ways to increase ones set of options for dealing with any communication situation. His work isn’t about sticking to one “best way to communicate” formula; it’s about giving leaders a variety of tools so they can pick the best one to suit the message, person and situation. Pradeep specializes in Management skills, Personal Impact, Assertiveness, and Influencing skills.
