This one-day, interactive, practical course has been designed especially for women in the workplace. It focuses on developing and embodying the skills needed to create an impact and communicate with confidence and 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. These will be practiced and then applied to different communication settings and role-play scenarios to enable you to develop greater flexibility and choice in how you react and communicate.

Explore flexing between communication styles and language choices to assist you in communicating assertively, from a position of personal power, knowledge, and confidence.

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