As an employer, are you confident that your employees’ communication skills are up to scratch? Do they communicate efficiently with one another? When they communicate with clients or potential clients, do they promote the quality image you want for your business?

I can help you by helping them.

I specialise in arranging bespoke workshops and courses for employees, designed with your input, which address the communication issues you feel are important. Whether the sessions are for individual staff, or groups of six or ten or more, I can provide quality training which will make sure you are getting your message across.

Alternatively, if you are a sole trader, are you presenting yourself as effectively as you can or do you feel that the way you talk or write lets you down? If you are in any doubt, have a look at the Private Tuition section of this website.

Courses and workshops can easily be worked into your own Continuing Personal Development (CPD) programme.

I have delivered training courses all over Great Britain including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Carlisle, Darlington, Northallerton, Newcastle, Sheffield, Middlesbrough, York, Sunderland, Stockton, Leicester, Manchester, Leeds, Cardiff and in various locations in London including Whitehall, HM Treasury, the Ministry of Justice, Canary Wharf and Fleet Street.

My specialist training portfolio includes the following - :
  • Effective Writing
  • English Language for Grownups
  • Interview technique
  • How to write a Press Release
  • Writing Reports, Essays and Dissertations
  • Writing Briefings
  • Oral Briefings
  • How to write English clearly and correctly
  • Presentation Skills
  • Confident Public Speaking
Each course consists of two half-day workshops. These can either be delivered as single modules or consecutively to form a one-day session. Prices are structured per delegate, per half-day workshop.  
The list above is not exhaustive - please contact me if you are looking for a subject not listed here. My charges are agreed in advance, so you always know exactly what you are paying for. I am happy to travel to see you, although if extensive travelling is needed I may have to charge a small fee for mileage, also negotiated in advance. In any case the first consultation is entirely free and without obligation.
