This workshop was designed for councillors who are challenged by presentations and other forms of communications. Utilising a scenario-based approach, participants gained an awareness and understanding of the role of presentation: clarifying your key message, improving communication within council and with external stakeholders - and increasing the impact, effectiveness and engagement of your own unique presentation style across multiple platforms of communication.

The workshop also supported councillors with strategies, tools and resources to managing communications. By participating in this workshop and practicing the principles and exercises shown, participants reached a new level of command in accessing your authenticity and ability to speak from the heart with greater influence. They learnt how to transform their message through their body and voice – giving them a greater connection with themselves, their message, their “messaging” and rapport with their audiences - on a wide variety of stages, situations and environments.
