female business speaker presenting to group

You naturally have communication style preferences and so do your customers and employees. The Communication Skills Workshop will show you how to understand yourself better and recognise the signals your customers and employees are giving you using the principles of DiSC Profiling.


When is the Communication skills workshop?

This online workshop is being held on Wednesday 2nd September, 10am – 1pm.


What will I learn?

  • An introduction to DiSC – analysing your personality and improving communication with others
  • Your strengths and areas to ‘manage’
  • Identifying the signals that others are giving you
  • How to adapt to communicate with others more effectively.
