Programme Brief:

In today’s environment where we must make every opportunity presented to communicate, matter, whether

  • in a conference call
  • after a presentation
  • when handling tough questions
  • when handling objections
  • when making a pitch

The fundamental premise of this workshop is that by having STRUCTURED thinking, you will have CLARITY.   And clear thinking results in clear speaking.  This THINKING skills workshop will train you to organise your thoughts and ideas quickly so you can respond clearly and concisely and create IMPACT.  Every time.

This workshop is also useful as tools learnt can be applied to structuring emails, briefings and even longer presentations with ease.

Note:  The “Think On Your Feet®” (TF®) programme has achieved worldwide recognition as one of the most original and useful communication workshops taught today. It has been conducted throughout the US, Europe, Middle East, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Asia and been translated into 13 different languages (meaning that the skills learnt is useful regardless of language you use).
