Personal Impact and Brand is a big deal in the modern, competitive world. Perception is reality, so how much of a positive and memorable impact you have on others is vitally important.
This workshop will help anyone wanting to realise greater influence and success in relationships with colleagues and clients. This course look at self-awareness, our understanding of others, focus on positive behaviours and language and building trust.
