Programs & Workshops for you and your team
One professional aspect of communication relates to how your team interacts with clients, customers and peers. Equip your team with professional speaking skills to create compelling presentations or avail of one to one coaching sessions. These presentation programs are tailored towards emerging leaders and individuals seeking to influence others through public speaking. Gain that edge over your competitors by delivering compelling presentations and enhancing your delivery skills.
Public speaking is the most powerful marketing tool you have…. and also the most misused and misunderstood.
The Speaker Coach programs offer fun and interactive workshops where your teams can learn all aspects of structuring presentations, keeping the content ‘audience friendly’ including appropriate use of slides, along with learning essential delivery skills. There is a psychology behind connecting with your audience – by becoming aware of this aspect of presentation delivery, your team will gain that competitive edge. With all our programs, we work on the two distinct areas – Mindset & Skillset.
Our Courageous Conversations programs equip participants with the right mindset and tools to ensure effective resolutions to conflict. When attendees learn to get conversations back on track, progress can be made. Our Courageous Conversations programs can enhance your working relationship and enhance connection, communication and collaboration in business.
The focus is on YOUR delivery. How to deliver a memorable message that your audience will be compelled to act on! These in-company programs can be tailored to your teams’ needs, both in content and duration. Individual programs are available for a specific speaking event. A pre-session questionnaire is completed by each participant so as we can focus specific attention to the needs of each individual.

"We were looking for someone to help our software engineers (as well as managers and leaders) to flourish through improving their communications and presentation skills. Karen's credentials really stood out to us, and her engagement style made it straight-forward to tailor a package to suit our needs. Engineers, who typically stand back when it comes to a focus on soft skills, were queuing at the door for the opportunity of this professional engagement. And they weren't disappointed. The feedback received to date is proving it's time well spent, with this response standing out to me, from an experienced yet quiet manager; "I'd go as far to say it was one of the best sessions I have attended in my career". We are delighted with progress to date and wouldn't hesitate in recommending for other organisations."Dean CaronDirector of IT Delivery, Engineering Excellence (DevOps) @ Unum Ireland

"I've known Karen since December 2015 when I reached out to her with a request for support to help me in my goal of improving the communication skills of my team in work. From day 1 Karen has shown herself to be an extremely positive and supportive person with excellent communication and leadership skills. She exudes energy and has demonstrated that she has vast expertise in the areas of communication and team leadership. As a result, my team has gone from strength to strength. We owe a lot to Karen for all the work that she has done with us."Paul ThompsonPeople Operations @ Google
Karen’s workshop was brilliant. Delivered with energy and infectious enthusiasm, Karen got everyone in the group engaged and involved throughout the session. The depth of Karen’s experience and expertise shone through as she drew out the less confident team members by encouraging them to be brave, step out of their comfort zone and learn the essential ingredients that make up a successful presentation. The session was fun and fast paced which made it easy to grasp the key points that Karen wished to communication to us. I would highly recommend this workshop to all.William CotterFounder at Net Affinity, Hotel booking technology
