Our Magnificent 7 Differentiators


  1. COMMUNICATION SPECIALISTS = SUPERIOR TRAINING – as experts in our field, fluent in  the world-class content and tools we offer, we are free to focus our entire attention on, and able to bring out the best in, all our workshop participants.  We tailor our language and examples to your world and work very personally on each individual’s skills development. We’re often told our training feels like 1-on-1 coaching in a group.

  2. PRACTICAL, ENGAGING TRAINING FOR THE REAL WORLD – F2F’s reputation is for material that is meaningful, relevant and immediately useful, while our facilitators are known to be warm, engaging and fun but also smart, savvy and happy to engage in curious and challenging discussions.

  3. WE TREAT PARTICIPANTS LIKE THE INTELLIGENT ADULTS THAT THEY ARE – We assume participants to be smart, capable and successful in their roles with solid technical and people skills already in place. We simply enable them to be even more clear, concise and influential, even more consciously and consistently, in all their daily communications.

  4. THOROUGH FEEDBACK – One of the challenges for business people, particularly senior managers, is soliciting meaningful feedback from colleagues. Our specialisation and experience ensures we offer feedback that is clear, specific and palatable.  Stretching all business presenters and communicators to the next level is our sole focus, and phrasing our feedback in a way that will help people achieve that, is our speciality.

  5. CHANGING ACTIONS AND SELF PERCEPTION, FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE RESULT – Rather than thinking of ourselves as siloed technical experts, it is incumbent on all of us these days to lead, collaborate and consult with, a range of stakeholders. F2F deliberately and methodically influences participants to step up and think of presenting and influencing as core, not peripheral, to their role and equip them with the tools and confidence to do so.

  6. IT’S PERSONAL –F2F gets to know an organisation and its people extremely well so we can offer the most relevant and personally engaging training possible, and as a result, we enjoy close, long-term relationships with decision-makers and participants alike. We take our job seriously, we take your business results seriously and we take your participants’ personal growth extremely seriously.  And to achieve those very serious outcomes, we have some serious fun along the way!

  7. WE ARE OUR REPUTATION – as a small organisation, our reputation and business rests entirely on the impact of each piece of training that we run.  We’re only ever as good as our last engagement.  For the well-being and long-term sustainability of our company therefore, as well as our own professional pride, we aim to continually improve our skills, broaden our knowledge, deepen our understanding and give you the very best of ourselves every single time.

General Manager

“Until I met Carolyn and listened to her audio course, I thought that to be a good presenter, I needed to morph into a different person. Carolyn helped me realise that being true to my unique style and personality is my greatest asset when presenting. She provides really useful tools and techniques that helped me develop my very own formula for presentation success”

General Manager

It is all about outcomes for F2F and this is what I most appreciated as a participant in the Influencing Skills training - they always had my growth as a leader in mind, and I was kept honest through follow up work to ensure my learning was put into practice.
