The Power of Corporate Storytelling in Persuasive Communications Masterclass

In all forms a business, it is essential to be able to speak with compelling content whether it’s to an audience or one to one. This accelerated masterclass condenses the content and techniques from Xecofy’s 5-day communication mastery course into a high impact masterclass that takes account of senior executives’ greater experience and time constraints.

Business relies on effective communication. There is hardly any occasion when we’re not trying to persuade people to do something.

We have prepared our clients for:

  • Conference keynote speeches to establish their expert status
  • Board and AGM presentations 
  • Speaking at sales events to raise the profile of their business and attract clients.
  • Communicating visions and values through the organisation.

In one packed day, it will show you:

  • The key elements of persuasive communication
  • The power of stories in business what makes them different from entertaining stories
  • The power of humour to make your audience receptive to your message
  • How to craft persuasive presentations effortlessly and at short notice.
