Consulting Skills

The Consulting Skills Programme has been specifically designed to equip professionals who have to communicate their expertise to client (both internal and external) and who are required to influence an outcome and ensure that change happens.

 Who is it for?

  • All technical professionals in the IT, Telecoms and Engineering Sectors
  • All Internal consultants and professionals, including HR Business Partners, Safety and Lean Performance Professionals
  • Sales People who wish to develop additional Consultative Selling and Influencing Skills
  • Professionals who as part of their job need to influence others and bring about change through the power of influencing

 What will they get from the Programme?

The Programme covers three key areas

  • Creating, developing and maintaining effective client relationships and partnership.
  • Making sense of business complexity.
  • Establishing productive business outcomes with clients.

The programme provides two essential components for the Technical Professional’s tool-bag:

  • Frameworks that are easy to assimilate and apply across a wide variety of assignments or projects, and
  • Techniques and skills that can be used both for planning and analysis, and whilst “face-to-face” whilst working with clients.

“Live” business situations provided by the participants, form the subject matter of the real-life practice sessions central to the course.  No artificial role-plays are used.

 What past participants say about the programme:

  • “The event was excellent.  Facilitators were very credible.  It was valuable to talk to individuals from the outside world.”
  • “I feel that the course has actually given me great insight both into my clients’ view points and my own abilities to influence.”
  • “This course was excellent and really enjoyable.  It provided lots of practical skills I know I will use starting with my next visit.”
  • “I think it would be useful for our Project Managers to attend so that we get a common approach to dealing with projects.”
  • “I could have done with this course two years ago.  I wish I could have got as much out of some of the other courses I’ve been on”
  • “An excellent course that will bring immense value to the organisation.  The trainers were extremely knowledgeable and kept the energy going throughout”
