Specialist Communication and Performance for Sales and Leadership Teams

Dominic Colenso is a speaker who knows a thing or two about the highs and lows of performance. By the time he was 26 he had flown a Thunderbird, lost one million dollars and been fired by Simon Cowell. Beginning his career as a professional actor, he worked extensively on stage and screen before training as a director at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.

Performing in many of the UK’s leading theatres including The National Theatre and The Royal Court, Dominic has appeared on film in everything from BBC period dramas to big budget action movies. He is best known for playing Virgil Tracy in the Hollywood adaptation of Thunderbirds with Bill Paxton and Sir Ben Kingsley.

Dominic Colenso’s experience and fascination in how the body, breath and voice can influence performance led him to set up his communication skills training consultancy In Flow and to write his bestselling book “IMPACT: How to be more confident, increase your influence and know what to say under pressure”.

Creating Impact – Unlocking Star Performance

Why is it relevant?

The world of work has evolved. Technology has accelerated the pace of change. But some of our human connection has been eroded and our confidence in high stakes environments has been knocked. If we want to truly create an impact we need to harness the power of analogue communication in this digital age. Whatever our job title, if we want to stand out from the crowd, we need to develop the skills to engage with others on a human level. We need to be able to capture the imagination and take our audience on a journey. Our interactions need to move from the transactional to the transformational.

Whether we’re networking, selling or having a conversation with our team, understanding our personal impact is vital to our success and our ability to influence. How confident do we feel under pressure? What do others say about us when we are not in the room? Are we able to assert ourselves and hold our ground in challenging scenarios? This high energy interactive session will teach you practical tools techniques to ensure that you have more impact and perform at your best.

What are the takeaways?

  • Develop a winning mindset for successful, authentic communication and collaboration
  • Learn how to increase your confidence and banish your nerves
  • Understand your non-verbals and the hidden messages you are transmitting
  • Develop your ability to articulate your message clearly
  • Understand how to speak your audience’s language and increase your influence

Who is it for?
