F2F Communications - Workshops and Coaching


Presentation Skills

Simply Presenting
Whether we like it or not, presenting is a core part of most roles these days.  Whether presenting to your Senior Leadership Team, 1-up, Clients, Peers or Direct Reports, you’re at a professional and competitive disadvantage if you’re not confident and effective in your presentation skills.

Simply Presenting Stretch
Simply Presenting Stretch takes confident presenters beyond ‘being good’ to ‘being great’!

Simply Presenting for Women
Speaking up, being succinct and action-focused, delivering with conviction and authority, and asking directly for the outcome required, are areas women often ask us for support in.  SPW was designed specifically for this target audience.

Presentation Consulting
Our consultants offer expert guidance and support for major pitches and keynote presentations based in decades of experience.

Communication Skills

Communications Mastery Program
Communications – with clients, management, peers and staff – is central to success.  Yet very little focus is given to it at school, university or in the workplace.  When we recognise this, it becomes evident that making it a central focus, will create a strong differentiator and deliver some important and often quick wins.

Influencing Skills

Simply Influencing
Influencing is not the spontaneous result of charm, charisma or wit.  It’s not even the guaranteed outcome of a good idea or well argued business case.  It requires thought, planning and a strong focus on the other party’s point of view, needs and way of thinking about the world.

Simply Resilient
In a 24/7 economy where many people are living and working longer and harder than ever, resilience is core to the physical and mental well-being of both the individual and organisation.  More importantly, it’s a learned skill not a personal trait.  In this workshop we look at how to maintain and tap into your inner strength during good times and bad.

Facilitation Skills

Simply Facilitating
Simply Facilitating combines smart preparation processes with practical tools for managing people and time, to ensure your meetings are engaging, enjoyable and achieving outcomes! 

Writing Skills

Simply Business Writing
The way we were taught to write at school often works against us when writing for business.  Simply Business Writing, like all our programs, assumes our participants are intelligent, capable and articulate, and assists them in being more succinct, clear, engaging and persuasive.

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.
