Maximise the return on your training investment

Assessment tools like DISC profiling and Workplace Group Accelerator help you pinpoint the exact training required by each member of your team. No more wasting funds on training that "might be what they need..."

Leadership seminars : These seminars combine presentation and facilitation within the whole group or in smaller breakout groups. Covering topics such as Courageous Communication, Create an Engaged and Engaging Workplace and Persuasive Negotiation, the seminars are enjoyable and interactive.

Skills Training
Skills training can be delivered as short, stand-alone training sessions or as a complete series. Emerging leaders, middle managers or senior managers receive training which provides skills which will take them to the next level of leadership. 

Masterclass:  Perhaps an intensive, 2 hour presentation on specific topics is the kind of training your leaders need. A Masterclass focuses purely on your area of need. 

Formal presentations and Keynote Addresses Leadership seminars tailored for presentation to large groups. These presentations inspire the entire audience with the desire to improve their leadership performance.

“Ricky presented at our annual joint networking event with Women in Finance Vic Inc., the Institute of Chartered Accountants and Victorian Women Lawyers in February 2012. We have previously received feedback that our participants wanted more networking opportunities and this is why we chose Ricky for this event. The demand for Ricky's seminar 'Converting Contacts to Contracts' was so strong that we sold out a month before the event - which is a huge success for us. Presenting to a group of over 170 lawyers, accountants and women in the finance industry Ricky's high energy and informative presentation had the room warmed up within the first 30 seconds. Ricky worked through a self assessment workshop on our attendees approach to networking and our guests left with the skills and tools to enable them to make the most of their networking opportunities both at this event and in the future. Ricky is an entertaining, engaging and highly informative presenter. I would consider this event to be one of the most successful networking events we've held and we look forward to working with her again.”We have previously received feedback that our participants wanted more networking opportunities and this is why we chose Ricky for this event.”
