This virtual course has been designed for women who work in the public sector. It focuses on developing and embodying the essential skills needed to create impact and communicate with confident credibility.

This Confident Communication for Women in the Workplace course offers a highly effective toolkit of transformative, performance-based techniques, involving the body, breath, and voice.

This toolkit can be practiced repeatedly to enable you to increase your sense of personal power, credibility, and nascent leadership capacities.

Through the use of virtual breakout rooms, this course incorporates group role play scenarios that explore flexing between different communication styles and language choices to assist you in communicating assertively, from a position of personal power, knowledge, and confidence.

From the comfort of your own home, practice speeches and receive expert and individual advice from the trainer.

From group exercises in breakout rooms to live chat, whiteboards and interactive polls, we use a range of tools and techniques to ensure that you can connect with your trainer; network and share best practice with your peers and leave the day with the skills you need.
