Potential Business Issues...

Some reasons businesses come to us include:

  • The team aren’t as engaged as they need to be during this period of change
  • Greater rapport and cooperation needs to be generated with cross-functional business units
  • The team need a higher profile and greater credibility across the broader business
  • Team members need to step up by thinking of themselves as ‘consultants’ to other business units and senior management
  • Some people aren’t speaking up confidently in meetings and their ideas aren’t being heard
  • Speakers at an internal conference, or one being held for clients and potential clients need to be confident, engaging, clear and consistent in the messaging
  • Written communications are being misinterpreted and causing unnecessary conflict
  • Email is being used when a phone or meeting would create greater connection
  • Reports are too long and unfocused
  • People are spending too much time in meetings that don’t achieve much
  • Presentations are wordy and dry
  • People are change-fatigued and in need of rejuvenation and resilience


Some immediate benefits of our programs:

  • Up to 50% reduction in time spent planning for meetings and presentations
  • Improved clarity of thought and delivery such that the message is clearly understood by all
  • Greater connection whether one-on-one, small or large group, or written communication
  • Improved confidence and persuasiveness
  • More meaningful and outcome-oriented meetings
  • Improved personal resilience, sense of control and flexibility


In short, our clients have consistently testified for over 20 years that our training leads to:

  • Improved personal efficiency, focus and confidence
  • Greater clarity, engagement and rapport with stakeholders
  • And ultimately stronger relationships, internal and externally, that give the business a competitive edge

 



What our clients say...

Business Development Manager

I now feel less nervous about the concept of presenting generally and more in control of the process

General Manager
Telstra

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.

General Manager
Telstra

“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”

HR Director

Each year we ask F2F back to deliver training at adidas because they are organised, know their stuff and get results. The execution is seamless and their exceptional ability as trainers, unquestionable.
