In today's competitive working environment, clear, error-free and reader-friendly business writing is essential. Like it or not, face-to-face communication is being replaced by various written forms. Compared to oral communication, acquiring the writing skills needed to produce different types of business documents is perceived even by good communicators as challenging and forbidding. Impact often has to be created solely by verbal competence without relying on vocal or visual support. Our training in effective business writing will prepare you to achieve this rapidly. By attending the interactive training, you will learn and practise the key principles of professional writing.
Although email is the default communication vehicle in the business world today, a lack of proper awareness in professional emailing can harm the reputation and business of an organization. Judgments are made on the company based on the accuracy and appropriacy of the writer sending the email. Even within an organisation, and more so as business goes global, people tend to communicate through emails rather than pick up the phone or have face-to-face meetings each time. Time and distance dictate the necessity as much as anything else. It is important to remember that emails, although slightly more relaxed, are nonetheless business letters in electronic form. Understanding the general principles of good correspondence and awareness of the accurate use of language, style, format, netiquette, and other do’s and don'ts are vital. Our highly interactive workshop will enable you to achieve the desired impact and convey your message more effectively and persuasively.

Research has shown that speaking publicly is the number one fear for most people ranking it ahead of death. People with a very high level of English can lack the confidence and the ability to speak in front of an audience, particularly an Anglo audience. This training is for such people as well as those who may already be good presenters, but need to further enhance their existing skills for a more effective, persuasive and professional presentation. Our workshops are highly interactive and focus on the skills and techniques needed to make presentations that have impact and get results. You will be trained in areas such as structuring your presentation, using visual aids, controlling nerves, dealing with questions, voice control, and non-verbal communication. An important element of the workshop is the practice and feedback participants receive both from their peers and the trainer.
Through the years, NLP has developed some very powerful tools and skills for communication and positive change in a wide range of professional areas including counselling, psychotherapy, education, health, creativity, law, management, sales, sport, leadership and parenting.
NLP not only provides tools and skills for the development of states of individual excellence, but it also establishes a system of empowering beliefs and presuppositions about what human beings are, what communication is and what the process of change is all about. It is important to realise that while NLP is a set of guiding principles, attitudes and techniques about behaviour in real life, it is NOT a scientific theorem. It gives individuals choice; choice to choose their behaviours, emotional states and physical states of well-being by understanding how the mind works. It removes self-imposed limits.
Therefore, at another level, NLP is about self-discovery. It is a way of enriching the choices that you have and perceive as available in the world around you. It also provides a framework for understanding and relating to the 'spiritual' part of human experience that reaches beyond us as individuals to our family, community and global systems. NLP is not only about competence and excellence, it is about wisdom and vision.
