Breaking a habit and learning new skills takes perseverance and time.

However, most soft skills training consists of brief, ad-hoc workshops, dealing only with one specific problem or issue. After such a course, you are full of good intentions (you even put the handbook on your desk for easy access!) But your day-to-day work prevents you from making the intended changes, and the handbook ends up at the bottom of an in-tray.

The missing element is accountability.

If we knew someone would be asking us how we were doing, which changes had worked, which hadn’t; if we were given tools to continue making improvements, it’s far more likely, different techniques would be tried, changes implemented and the handbook consulted regularly.

The Communication Academy is an invaluable membership programme that builds those skills.

“It’s been three months since I signed up for the wonderful Communication Academy. It’s had an amazing effect on my delivery, most recently at The Business Show.”

– VB, Amersham

We provide accountability, monthly content that relates to your personal communication goals and a monthly individual call with the Programme Leader. We are also just a message away to deal with any query you have on any aspect of communication in between time.
The Communication Academy gives you the space to practice and discuss what you’re learning. It helps you to build strategies and approaches to handle a whole variety of business situations so that you have them to hand and can use them on a daily basis.c
And … you can join as an individual or we can come to your offices and run it for your team.
Whichever you choose the training only takes half a day a month.

Whether you want to …

… The Communication Academy will help you to upskill and build your confidence so no matter the situation or audience, you consistently come across as both confident and competent.

What do you get?

A monthly half day meeting where we cover topics such as:

“My communication style has definitely improved and I’m being more assertive. I even found myself taking the lead in a meeting the other day, which I would never normally do.”

– SS, Essex

But it isn’t just about the content.
Each quarter you plan your goals for the next quarter … Every month you practice the techniques and commit to how you will use them in the coming weeks. You share both successes and when things don’t quite work out as expected … and there will be ongoing support from the programme leaders and the group.
This isn’t for you if you just want three hours out of the office every month and then go back to forget everything.
This is for you if you want to:

How do you get it?

As an individual you can sign below to join. We only open the doors to the Communication Academy 2 or 3 times a year and if it’s not currently open, just add your name to the list and you will be the first to be told when the doors open again.

If you want to create your own in-house Communication Academy then tick the box below or email Sally now and she’ll get in touch to discuss how this could work for you.

Whichever option you choose,as a member you get:

Over the months you build a toolkit packed full of real-life examples, proven techniques and simple to use tools to take away and use immediately … AND, you set and achieve your own personal goals which will increase your communication skills.
Sign up now and we’ll be in touch with the next start date.
And/or tick the in-house box and we’ll call you about setting up a Communication Academy at your place of work.
Once you join your membership fee will remain the same as long as you are a member (and that’s up to you too … no minimum membership or contracts).

“Having joined The Communication Academy, I have not only found my confidence again, but no longer dread standing up and talking in front of others. The Communication Academy has been unlike any other formal learning I have been on around this topic. Training on presenting was a course I never looked forward to but I can only say the opposite about these sessions. The size of the group and extra monthly clinic has meant that the sessions are tailored to fit our needs which has made it a very positive experience.”

– VF, Buckinghamshire
