Nothing is more important in life than the ability to communicate effectively” It is probably the most important of all life skills.” – Gerald R. Ford

You know when you lose connection on a phone call, but how about when communicating in person? According to George Bernard Shaw “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

Effective communication goes beyond words. It is all about connecting, the ability to identify with people and relate to them in such a way that it increases our influence with them. While it may seem like some people are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection, whether you consider yourself a people person or not.

Discover unique insights from the Maxwell DISC Personal Profile Report and unlock 10 Connecting Principles and Practices that will enable you connect authentically whether communicating one-to-one, in a group or before an audience.


While it may seem like some people are just born with it, the fact is that effective communication is a skill, and like any other skill it can be learnt. This CPD accredited programme will equip you with the skills to connect authentically with your audience whether communicating 1-2-1, in a group or with an audience. You will:
