VOX courses

Public sector

Communicate well, achieve more

Here are a few of the courses we deliver in the public sector. Each is adapted to the needs of the client and generally lasts one day. Many other equally relevant courses are also available, or VOX can design training specially for your organisation.

  • Stand and Deliver: Making Effective Presentations

    Giving a presentation can be tough. As well as the challenge of managing nerves, there’s the need to connect immediately with the audience, hold their interest and convey a message with clarity and impact. This course turns competent presenters into outstanding ones.

  • Impact and Influence

    How can we develop a professional persona that’s authentic and helps us fulfil our potential? What are the qualities that give us an influential edge in the workplace? This course is about physical and vocal presence and becoming someone to whom others want to listen.

  • Speak for Yourself: Assertive Communication

    The working environment can be intimidating. Speaking in high-level meetings, interacting with more senior people and dealing with sensitive issues are examples. This course explores ways of communicating confidently, clearly and honestly even in high-pressure contexts.

  • Effective Communication within Teams

    Most teams comprise people with different backgrounds, personalities and priorities. If tensions arise, morale declines. This course focuses on communicating in ways that help groups flourish and that boost their collective performance.

  • Excelling in Media Interviews

    It feels as though it’s always open season on public sector bodies. How do you come through a tough radio or TV interview with your dignity and your organisation’s reputation intact? This course helps people perform confidently and credibly in the glare of the media.
