Build your ability to influence, collaborate and engage others in your workplace – ensuring your ideas are heard and actioned.

The LITE 1-day public version of our signature Mastering Communication program is ideal for agile professionals who want to accelerate their skills but cannot commit to the 2-day full ADVANCED experience. Whether you are in Singapore or rural New South Wales, join us online and walk away with immediately applicable skills you can take to your workplace the next day. 

Have an upcoming delivery you need to prepare for? We’ve got you covered! You’ll work on your own delivery in the session and apply the learning as we go. Develop key skills and learning frameworks to cut through the noise and deliver a compelling message – in any context. Walk away with step-by-step templates that allow you to design a presentation, pitch, change initiative or project launch on-demand. 

In contrast to traditional “presentation” training – we prepare you to deliver with influence in all communication scenarios; one-to-one conversations, large audiences and most importantly in meetings (where you spend much of your time) with your peers, leaders and clients. 

What will I learn?

Our three step communication framework Diagnose, Design and Deliver provides a refined structure for all delivery scenarios. We’ll guide you through each stage ensuring you can then –

  • Communicate with confidence: Feel more confident communicating with different seniority levels so that business strategies have a greater opportunity to succeed.
  • Boost influence and buy-in: Be memorable every time, effortlessly nail your opening and influence skilfully anywhere, anytime.
  • Build engaging presentations: Learn how to use your physiology, voice and visual aids to design and deliver confidently… without relying on slides.
  • Prepare and rehearse like a pro: Save time and prepare with confidence (even at the last minute) using our simple and trustworthy design tool.

Who's this for?

The Mastering Communication LITE program is perfect if you are a professional in a role that regularly influences and engages teams, customers and stakeholders.

You’ll upskill quickly to stay relevant and impactful – whether it’s 1:1 conversations, team meetings or presentations.

Job roles where this course has been helpful –

  • subject matter experts who need to distil complex ideas 
  • project/change managers who need to influence and collaborate across orgs 
  • positional managers who need to motivate and lead a team
  • sales professionals who want to engage and have cut-through

1-day live virtual workshop with a CJM accredited facilitator and 4-weeks support. This includes 2 weeks online access prior to the training and 2 weeks post session to help embed the learning.

This is an immersive experience. We guide you through our methodology, providing lots of new ideas and skills - use a pre-prepared communication to apply the learning in the moment. We will work in groups to trial some of the techniques and you walk away with a fully formed delivery by the end of the day. Perfect if you have an upcoming presentation, pitch or conversation in mind.

The limited time at the Lite course doesn’t allow us to provide 1:1 feedback that the Advanced course does, but we provide follow up videos that help you practice and keep developing the skills. And our handy step-by-step communication templates are a valuable addition that we hear are kept for many years to support the development of any important communication.

The Advanced program is a more in-depth version of our communication training content. Providing more nuance and expertise to participants. Lite is more foundational.

Advanced runs over 2-days, rather than just one, and has 8 weeks of pre and post online training support, providing deeper value and more online modules. Advanced participants also benefit from individual coaching and feedback from the facilitator and more detailed sessions around storytelling, using your physiology, voice and space, and managing Q&A’s.

To support the increasing number of organisations and individuals who are working remotely we have extended our existing virtual presentation and meetings segment to ensure that every attendee is able to translate the tools and techniques we teach throughout the program into a virtual setting.

You'll receive a The Colin James Method® certificate of completion at the end of this program. You can add this to your LinkedIn profile and CV to demonstrate your achievement.

We’re happy to invoice your or your organisation (if your company is paying on your behalf), please use the ‘Enquire Here’ option and state you require an invoice.

This public training program draws a broad range of professional attendees across a  variety of seniority levels, job roles and industries.

We provide an inclusive environment where being amongst the wider collective extends your learning as you see the techniques being utilised in different scenarios.

Throughout the 4 weeks, you’ll have 24/7 access to a modern and easy-to-use mobile app where you can access extra learning modules. Inside training videos help prepare you for the courses as well as providing post-session insights that keep you focused and sustain your learning. 

You’ll also have some activities and reading to do to make sure you hit the ground running on the day and can make the most of time with the facilitator.
