About us

Our approach

 

All our small group workshops and one to one sessions are structured with rigour, but low on theory and designed to engage sceptical participants.

Our sessions are fast-paced and challenging, with extensive use of video rehearsal and feedback. Participants will learn to distil and disseminate their key ideas using our proprietary message development tool.

We adapt the sessions according to the ability and requirements of the executives – and according to specific upcoming communication challenges, which we can plan for in the pre-session call.
