We’ll see you soon Newcastle!

Drum roll please! We are very excited to announce that Understanding ModernGov will be running our first training course in Newcastle, this year! We are kicking off this new regional expansion by offering one of our most popular courses ‘Speaking with Impact’. This course ran 11 times in 2017 across London, Manchester and Edinburgh, with most events being sell outs!


At Understanding ModernGov we are committed to meeting the demand we face for our widely sought-after training courses. After our successful expansion in to the Scottish market in 2015, we continued our growth to Manchester in 2016 where we have since cemented our place as one of the largest public sector training providers. Due to this success and frequent requests for training regionally across the country we have decided to initially bring our courses to Newcastle. We hope that this shows our commitment to ensuring all parts of the public sector have access to our first-rate training nationwide and we are very excited for this opportunity.

What’s the course?

It has long been common knowledge that one of the UK’s biggest phobias is public speaking, with 1 in 4 people claiming they fear it. Because of this we created ‘Speaking with Impact’ to teach the public sector the vital skills they need to actually look forward to their next big presentation.

We all know that having confidence when you speak is vital to engaging your audience, ‘Speaking with Impact’ aims to help delegates to learn how to communicate clearly and teaches practical speech exercises that can be applied to everyday situations.

Who teaches the course?

Sandra has worked extensively as a Communication Skills Consultant, Trainer, Coach and Role-Player for the past fifteen years.

Her previous clients have included many well-known organisations including the BBC, BMW, British Aerospace, British Airways, BT, Deloitte & Touche, Iddas Ltd, Gillette, JP Morgan, Lloyds TSB, RADA Enterprises Ltd, Royal Mail, and Unilever.
