Group workshops are structured to include theory, practical exercises, video clips and group discussion in a safe environment.
We also work with individuals, tailoring sessions depending on their needs.
All our training and coaching tackles structure and content and involves recording participants delivering a pitch or presentation so that it can be reviewed together and sensitively critiqued.
We adapt the sessions according to ability and requirements – and if necessary, according to specific upcoming key events.
CLIENT CASE STUDIES
The CMO of Costa Coffee wanted to give her Global Marketing Department communication and presentation training to harness their existing skills and take them to the next level.
Working with groups of 6 people at a time over two days, 40 members of the department were assisted in developing these vital skills.
"Some training courses are fluffy but this is anything but",
"The best course I've been on all year"
"Luisa and Louisa are such inspirational trainers"
WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP
Savills the property experts, wanted to bolster their Female Leadership Development programme by offering our Confident Communication course to rising talent in the organisation.
Working virtually with groups of 6 women at a time during the Pandemic, we took the women through our full course culminating in a live panel event. The event gives participants a platform to put the training into practice and acts as a PR opportunity for Savills to invite clients and employees to attend.
"I have been really excited about the course and have loved what you have done. We are really delighted, you have made a real difference, thank you.”
Siân Tunney, UK Board Director
PRESENT LIKE A PRO
Vodafone wanted to upskill 30 of their sales employees to help them communicate with impact and connect with clients down the lens of a camera when working virtually.
During the 2.5 hour workshop which included practical sessions in break out rooms, we worked on networking techniques such as the Elevator Pitch and also focused on the power of storytelling.
“Thank you for the session you led with our team at Vodafone. We’re putting into practise all your training and advice and it's changing the way we approach our customer presentations on video”
Peter Baker, Head of Finance, Vodafone
One of the biggest global event organisers, Clarion Events, asked us to provide Corporate Media Training for their senior leadership team. We explained how to approach media interviews and put participants through their paces with mock TV and radio interviews based on crisis news scenarios tailored to their industry.
This sort of training also highlighted gaps in their messaging which businesses find extremely useful.
“We’ve engaged with a number of media training agencies before, but the Composure team offer something unique and invaluable. The combination of their real-world experience of being journalists, together with a training programme tailored exactly to the needs of our business was incredibly powerful and effective.”
During the height of the Covid pandemic, UBS in New York asked us to host a virtual talk for more than 250 of their employees.
We spoke about our careers in broadcasting covering some of the biggest international news stories of the past twenty years and the challenges of working in breaking news. Many of those broadcasting skills are transferable to business and the talk highlights ways to boost your confidence. Useful tips were given on virtual set ups, communicating with impact down a lens and coping with nerves.
“Thank you for an amazing webinar today, we have already received really positive feedback including: “This was an amazing call - Louisa and Louisa were fabulous. I always appreciate when a presenter understands that one powerful picture speaks volumes compared to text.”
Melissa Volpe - Platform Sales UBS
We were invited to give a talk at Amazon Headquarters in London as part of International Women’s Day. More than 150 employees attended the event. We spoke about our careers in broadcasting and the challenges of working in breaking news.
We did a group practical exercise getting everyone to re-write a FT newspaper article and then asked for volunteers to present their article to the whole group. We then fed back on content, structure and delivery. The practical exercise created a real buzz in the room with people cheering and clapping each other in a very collaborative, supportive way.
“Thank you so much for coaching us using your incredible experience! I’ve heard multiple stories today from attendees who came away with new ideas that they are inspired to act on. It was one of our most well attended and popular events.”
Jacqui Chin, European General Manager, Amazon
