– Reflect on what’s of most value to you – Take time to pause and challenge yourself in a practical, productive way. Update your values for these changing times.

– Bring ideas to life – Capture the excitement of your project, campaign or organisation in 60-seconds.

– Tell your story – represent yourself, your purpose and the benefits you bring.

– Make your case – step up to meetings with an articulate, compelling and persuasive message.

– Leave conventional success behind – learn the tools to build your movement and make your difference.

– Have fun – take your place in interactive, playful workshops in a safe space.

Simon Cohen[brief into to Si], along with his team of pioneering communicators[link to team section], will guide you through a playful process of introspection, interaction and exploration, teaching you tools and techniques to make your difference.

What topics will you cover?

“Be kind to your mother.”

  • Listen in

    Speaking out shouldn’t be a knee-jerk reaction. First comes reflection and honouring your unique perspective with skill, compassion and authenticity. We’ll take this time to discover purpose.

    Week 1: Listening in to our ‘why’ Exploring and refining language, metaphor to create resonance with our sense of purpose, why we do what we do, introducing the revelator pitch

    Week 2: Our stories of ‘why’ The art of storytelling, connecting with our own stories, expanding on our metaphor and language for our Revelator Pitch, adding texture, depth and layers to storytelling
  • Find your voice

    A compelling story is filled with possibility. Engaged, interested and inquisitive minds will hear your ‘why’ and be drawn to find out what comes next. In this part of the course we will define your ‘what’.

    Week 3: Finding our voice of ‘what’ Bridging from the story to our what, describing what we do in terms of benefits and actions - reach, the difference made, embodying our message, delivering wholeheartedly and a call to action - what we want people to think, say, do differently.

    Week 3 bonus: Submit your Revelator Pitch to Simon and the team
  • Speak Out

    The time is now. In our changing world, this is your chance to bring your authentic purpose to light. Now that you have the tools, it’s not just a nice to have, it’s your responsibility. Speak Out.
