Our flagship twelve week communications course can give you the ability to see what's actually being communicated all around you using non-verbal cues. We will help you persuade, motivate and impress by showing you how to say the right words in person, on an email or in any other form of communication.

Walking into a room of strangers, you'll be able to engage anyone in conversation. You'll learn through detecting verbal and non-verbal cues from clients the directions to take your pitch and the language to use to seal the deal. You'll remove nervousness and anxiety in any social or business scenario, even presenting to hundreds of people.

You'll become more charismatic, confident, and well-connected. You will leave your contemporaries and competitors behind.
If you'd like more information drop us an email and we will send you details of our courses.

Emotional Intelligence

Do you sometimes feel awkward, anxious, shy or troubled around others? Do you struggle to communicate with the opposite sex? Perhaps your voice isn't being heard in the workplace, or you have difficulty asserting yourself. Our emotional intelligence training can positively impact all of these areas.  You can become more confident, funny and engaging around others. Our training shows you how to win arguments, become charismatic and become the person you want to be: outgoing, confident and popular.  Being able to communicate effectively is a crucial skill in any social or working environment. Learn to maximise these skills, and you'll influence others, build relationships, control conflicts and ultimately be more successful socially and in business.

Imagine being able to confidently chat to anyone you find attractive and strongly influence those conversation outcomes. Perhaps you'd love to be able to present to a small group of your peers or a room full of hundreds of people?  We can help build your confidence and abilities to a point where you actively look for opportunities to stand and talk to an audience.

A few words from Steve

I trained initially as a radio journalist with the BBC, then started working for one of the biggest marketing companies in Europe. I returned to the BBC as senior radio and television journalist, training in filming and editing. For the next two decades, I was in front of the camera and microphone for most major broadcasters in the UK whilst writing for national newspapers. Meanwhile, my passion for neuroscience hasn't diminished in over 30 years of study and research. Combining my career path and personal interests has provide me with a 360-degree understanding of this industry.
