Trade Secrets Training: Presenting your best self – face-to-face communications skills for writers

17 May, 2016 @ 2:30 am - 5:00 pm

We writers may be ace at choosing the right words for the page, but there’s so much more to communicating well in person. Come along to this lively session to learn how to make a good impact and handle your clients with confidence.

Whether you’re a freelancer looking to enhance your personal brand or an experienced writer wanting a bit more panache to your presence, this workshop will put some wind in your sails and leave you with very useful skills for work, and for life.

Running the session will be the delightful Janet Gordon, consultant, trainer and coach in cultural and behavioural change, leadership, impact and presentation skills. Janet started her working life in theatre, and now works with blue-chip companies (she says the similarities are frightening).

When? 2.30-5 on Tuesday 17 May
Where? The Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London, EC1R 3GA
How much? £100 for members (£126 for non-members, including 1 year’s membership)
Interested? Email Rachel Marshall to book your place

You’ll leave this session with:

  • insights into how to make a good impression
  • an understanding of how to tune into other people and adapt your style
  • skills in using your voice and breath for better impact
  • more confidence when presenting work to clients

This session is ideal for you if you’d like:

  • to improve how you come across to clients
  • better outcomes when pitching for new work and presenting work
  • to spend an enjoyable few hours with fellow writers learning better ‘off-page’ communication skills
