Event Details

Course Description

Are you looking for advancement or more recognition at work?  Are you returning to work after time out (perhaps to bring up children) and maybe dreading the thought of giving a presentation?

Do you need to make your voice heard in meetings - of whatever kind? Or do you simply want to make communication in your daily life as effective as you can? 

This is a one day course designed to boost confidence and help you feel better placed to influence events.  You’ll be looking at ways to extend your range of communication tools so you can meet all sorts of different situations appropriately, inventively and productively.  A day full of helpful tips and techniques and some fun, practical exercises.


What's included?


This practical, interactive course will include helpful tips and techniques to help you:


·         feel grounded


·         get on top of the butterflies


·         grab and keep your audience’ s attention


·         focus on the effect you wish to have


·         hold the floor


·         find the heart of what you want to say


·         persuade people to look at things in a new light


·         sharpen your editing skills


·         focus on your objective


·         help others feel safe in your hands


·         make your communication productive 


There will be a workshop feel to the day and plenty of time to bring up specific issues, which may well resonate with others in the room.

By the end of the day you’ll be better placed to conquer nerves in order to communicate effectively (without being either aggressive or a push-over), to enjoy the challenge of winning people over and to achieve the practical outcomes you’re after.

Mumsnet Academy


So what is this Academy thing?
We're very excited to be launching The Mumsnet Academy - a brand new enterprise which aims to curate a portfolio of fantastic courses to fit around family commitments and busy working lives.
A while back we asked you what courses you would like and the programme of masterclasses, workshops, and events we've come up with is a reflection of your  responses.
To help us deliver the programme we have enlisted some fabulous experts in a range of fields as well as teaming up with some great partners who have a reputation for delivering high-quality, life-changing courses.
This collaborative approach allows us to offer a programme across a range of different subjects including entrepreneurship, business, technology, social media, blogging, history of art, creative writing, publishing, gardening, philosophy, finance, fashion as well as courses concerned with self-improvement and the concept of learning to live wisely and well. Some of these courses will be skill-based, while others will explore concepts, theory and ideas. 
If we've missed something you think is a must, fear not, we will be adding classes to our portfolio all the time so please drop us a line or complete the suggestion box on our website.
One of the things that we felt was important was to ensure our Academy courses are available across the UK and we are pleased to announce that we will be running events in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester from day one. We are also keen to develop some online courses and hope to announce the first of these later this year.
While our courses are scheduled at times which are more convenient for those with young children, they are absolutely open to everyone. Ultimately, the overall aim of the Mumsnet Academy is to bring people together in a thought-provoking and fulfilling environment where there is a universal willingness to explore ideas, develop skills, and learn from experts as well from each other.
