As the geographical reach of our work continues to expand, I seem to have been working in Europe a great deal recently. This means I am working with delegates for whom English is not their first language.

Having just completed tutoring on a four week evening course I wanted to take a moment to reflect on why I believe this bite size evening training is so beneficial to the delegates. Just a little over a month ago 8 diverse individuals met together with me to undergo our first Presentation Skills evening class. The group was made up of different ages, nationalities, backgrounds and job titles. All had in common a desire to be able to communicate with more clarity and impact. This involved them in pitching for new business, running a training course, delivering information and exchanging ideas. We had two and a half hours a week to work together to make the magic that creates a transformation in the way people communicate.
With May 3rd local elections fast approaching, local councils will be undergoing many changes. New councillors will be joining the ranks and experienced councillors will be embracing new roles. Whilst most councils have their own induction processes for new councillors, there are many skills the councillor needs in order to fulfil their potential and to serve their community as effectively as possible. At the heart of these skills is the ability to communicate with clarity and impact.
