Cold facts alone fail miserably to inspire, engage and motivate. To sell a future vision, challenge the market convention or persuade people to embrace change is often about so much more. Since 2013, our global work with one of the world’s most recognisable FMCG brands has mainly focused on presence and impact for Factory Directors, Market Insight Specialists and HR Heads. Delivered in Singapore, Australia, the US and Europe, most have been facilitated workshops complemented by 1:1 coaching.
I've partnered with Kirkstone to design and deliver a workshop to help senior groups develop their personal presence and impact when leading others. We consistently hear outstanding comments from participants that this workshop has helped fundamentally shift their communication skills. A combination of excellent coaching, self-awareness raising and innovative models have helped to shift performance.
I've worked with Kirkstone over the past 18 months. During this time they’ve provided high quality strategic input into a leadership development programme for our Supply Chain Academy. The programme draws participants from all over the world who share role type, but often varying levels of comfort delivering communication messages to a variety of audiences. We’ve consistently had high feedback that the session run by the Kirkstone trainers is one of the most impactful in the course. The standard of their trainers is high, and they adapt their approach according to circumstances. I've also had feedback from many participants that upon return to their day jobs they’ve put into practice key aspects of what they’ve learnt to improve their communication impact, and the level of engagement they achieve with their audiences.
Having worked with Will several times, I am always impressed by the efficacy of his coaching for personal impact and storytelling. One of the best coaches I have ever met.
