This one-day interactive, practical course has been designed specifically for women in the workplace. It focuses on developing and embodying the essential skills needed to create impact and communicate with confident credibility: skills that are much in demand as women define and develop their professional roles and career path within the workplace.

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, respond and communicate.

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

The skillset can be adapted flexibly to support professional roles at all levels, within different sectors, including newly-emerging, as well as more established industries.

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