corporate training experience
- 25 years

11 years working for a specialist presentation skills provider

14 years running F2F where we’ve broadened our offering to include communications in leadership, management, presenting, influencing, facilitating and writing

Prior to corporate training, Carolyn Crawford, F2F’s founder, worked in stockbroking – NAB London and JB Were Sydney on the Money Market and Private Client Desks respectively and won the top graduate award for The Australian Securities Institute Diploma in 1993 – meaning she has a good understanding of business operations, markets and governance that provide a background context to all our work.

PARTICIPANTS TRAINED

0

Given we work in small groups for a personal approach that maximises individual results, we have worked on average with close to 500 people per year over the past 25 years for a total of just over 12,000 participants.

The benefit of that experience to you is that we’re extremely adept at customising the training, feedback and coaching for each person so they are comfortable, open, engaged, encouraged and coached in skills that are tailored directly to their business communication scenarios

70% confidence IMPROVEMENT

For each program we run, we ask participants to self-assess 3 key measures before and after training and where feasible, with individual managers a month after training.

The measures we assess range from a minimum increase of 21% in succinctness for our 1-day business writing skills workshop, to 70% increase in confidence for our 2-day presentation skills program

Carolyn was helpful, empathic and humorous… a consummate presenter!
