The corresponding book entitled It's Not All About You, It's More About Them is available from Amazon. And for those with managerial responsibilities, a related book, Reading Your Own Watch is also available from Amazon.

Presenting Research (1½ or 2 days)

Writing Research Papers, Reports, and Dissertations (2 days)

These days, everyone is drowning in written material. Workshop participants regularly find that they can cut the length of their writing by 30% to 70% while making it easier to read and more persuasive! Your readers will love you for being clear and concise.

The corresponding book for the presenting and writing workshops is entitled Skills For Maximising Your Graduate Experience. It's available from Amazon.

From Idea To Bums On Seats (1 day)

If you need to create an in-house training workshop or programme, this workshop will take you through the steps from initial idea through planning and preparing to finally delivering the training.

The coresponding book, From Idea To Bums On Seats, is available from Amazon.
