Course summary

The art of good conversation opens up the world. Being skilled in this area can bring a positive benefit to anyone and re-connects us to one another. Too often in modern life we choose to ignore people, fearing conversations, but the truth is that many of us have forgotten how to converse; this private online training aims to rekindle the flame of conversing and turbocharge your nascent conversation skills.

Through our bespoke training we aim to improve both your conversation skills and your confidence in using them, as well as identifying situations where conversation can open up opportunities. By improving your conversation skills you will discover many advantages, both social and professional.

As each person’s needs differ, the coaching during our online conversation skills course is personalised to the individual, like all our other private online training.

Aims and objectives

Each course is tailored to the client and is designed to improve all aspects of conversation. Training is online and on a private, one-to-one basis. We explore opportunities for making and improving conversation as well as suitable subjects and highlighting those that are inappropriate.

Using many typical scenarios, we explore how to embark on conversations and seek out opportunities to practise and develop both conversational skills and confidence in real-life situations.

  • Learn how to open up conversations
  • Discover neutral topics that can be used in any situation
  • Find out which subjects to avoid so you don’t appear gauche or over-inquisitive
  • Gain knowledge of real-life situations where you can practise conversation skills
  • Acquire more self-confidence as your improved conversation skills open new doors

The tutors were fantastic, and made learning not only fun but also extremely practical. I learned so much and gained more confidence to ‘level up’. I can't recommend this course enough!
