  • Connect with the audience and establish rapport with different personality types: persuade and influence with integrity

  • Develop your authentic and natural speaking style

  • Manage personal stress and communicate effectively under pressure

Our Most Effective Business Communication Skills Training Modules

Two of our most popular units included in all our training formats are the FOCUS! Method and Connecting with Your Audience.

For subject experts and leaders there is a lot of pressure in choosing what to say, how much to say, and how to begin and how to end to ensure your message is effective, understood, and retained. That is why we created the FOCUS! Method which factors in the limitations of people's short-term memory. We can cause people to rehearse, replay, or have strong images connected to our messages that transfer the message from working memory to longer-term memory. Thereby removing the “stickiness” of your messages and presentations.


The FOCUS! Method also provides a way for both introverts and extroverts to essentially “say less, and say it better”. It is a way to take complex thoughts and ideas and quickly and effectively present them in a way that is designed to be heard, retained, and persuasive. Participants will get a chance to create their own Focus Method presentations using current topics or issues and practice presenting them to other participants. 

Here is a preview of the Focus Method. This was recorded May 1, 2019 during a Half-Day Workshop for Rogers Communications

The Connecting With Your Audience unit will help the participants to understand the behavioural cues of when your message is being received when to slow down, and when you need to clarify your message. Participants will also learn how to speak effectively from notes and text while using a conversational style of speaking that will help to imprint their message. Participants will practice this method with each other while receiving expert coaching.

Here is a video excerpt of the Connecting with Your Audience Unit from our Two-Day Workshop on July 29-30, 2019
