This half-day course explores how to develop your personal impact and increase your gravitas in one-to-one and group communication.

Discover how you can adjust your communication style to affect and engage your audience. Practise using a variety of tools and techniques to negotiate and build an open dialogue, learning to vary your techniques to ensure engagement with different character types. We will also use ‘actor training’ approaches including eye contact, pace, pause and improvisation to ensure positive engagement. 

You will:

  • Learn to win the interest and respect of your audience through techniques that put them at the centre of your narrative
  • Gain an understanding of how to connect with and influence any audience
  • Work with questioning, pauses and spontaneity to create positive relationships and arrive at harmonious resolutions

Increasing Impact & Influence is led by a fully qualified Voice and Communications Trainer. Group sizes are limited to 8 participants to ensure maximum impact and individual feedback. The course will run 9.30am - 12.30pm and is held at one of Central's London venues.
