Enhance Your Work (and Life) with Better Communication

Think of problems we face in our everyday lives: how many could be avoided with better information or instruction?

Think where working, or personal, relationships go wrong: how many situations would improve with more, or better, discussion?

And when things go well, isn't great communication often part of the background to it all?

Our courses will not only teach you about communicating and overcoming barriers, but also how to ask questions, to listen -- and even the importance of body language. Take the course -- and you may change your life!

How Would You Like to Learn Communication Skills?

Classroom training

Classroom and Live Webinars

Live, fully interactive training is proven to give the best learning experience and knowledge retention. You have the benefit of a relaxed but professional learning environment, an experienced trainer and the opportunity to ask questions, so you are 100% sure you understand all the course content.

Online courses

Online Video Courses

If your budget, and/or time, are limited, you can now choose online video courses at lower cost, and with the flexibility to study in your own time, at your own pace. The course content is exactly the same as we cover in the classroom, so you are still getting tried, tested and accredited Activia courses.

The Essential Soft Skill

Good communication skills are one of the most sought-after by employers, regardless of which industry you work in. But what does it mean exactly? What makes someone "good" in this area, and why is it such an essential skill nowadays?

In its simplest form, it's the ability to convey information to another individual - or individuals - effectively. But communication is a complex process which consists of more than just a series of words. In addition to the verbal message, your tone and quality of voice, as well as your body language and emotional display all play an important part in how your message is transferred to, and understood by, the other person.

Investing in training will help you learn how to convey messages in a clear and straightforward way, express your thoughts and ideas in a confident manner, demonstrate a varied and appropriate vocabulary, and be able to tailor your message and style to your audience.
