The Influence and Impact programme is designed to improve your skills and build your confidence as a communicator. It is ideal if your role involves influencing others – both inside and outside of your organisation – or if you lead teams or change projects.

Over three days, you will develop your own communication style that you can use in both your professional and personal life. You will sharpen the skills required for successful pitches and negotiations, including how to handle high-pressure situations and strong personalities.

The course is highly practical and offers the chance to learn and network with a supportive cohort of peers.
