    Game changing communication skills for advocates, campaigners and anyone seeking to persuade. This unique course develops public speaking and persuasive communication skills for advocates and others, who are trying to make a point.

    An 8-part series delivered on Thursday evenings / 4.30pm-9.00pm / 
    16 March to 11 May 2017 

    Can you wow the crowd and convince the opposition?

    Can you weave your facts into a compelling speech?

    How memorable is your best presentation?

    The program is ideal for anyone wanting to brush up their presentation skills to help engage others, raise awareness or amplify a message.

    Although it is designed to address the particular needs of advocates, everyone is welcome.
    You do NOT need to be involved with a particular cause or organisation in order to benefit.

    In addition to learning presentation skills and persuasion techniques, the course includes invaluable opportunity for live practice  followed by individual feedback and coaching, in a supportive and friendly environment.

    The payment covers the complete cost for the 8-part workshop series.
