Even though we do it all the time, communicating is not as simple as it may seem. It is easy for your messages to be misinterpreted. It’s also a skill to ask questions in such a way that you find out exactly what you want to know.

I thought the course was a good introduction to effective communication and makes me want to learn more about myself and other courses. The course made me question my communication skills and reflect on the things I need to work on to improve communication pathways within our business eg clarity, importance of body language, feedback can be done in a discussion
Anita Kemp–Murri Health Group Pty Ltd
I enjoyed the course, it met my expectations of what I wanted to get out of it. I realise I will have to continue to work on my skills to achieve the results I want. The course was facilitated by Rose – she was very helpful and informative. I liked that if you didn’t know something, you were not made to feel inadequate
Jennie Anderson–Murri Health Group Pty Ltd
Highly recommend Rose as a Facilitator as she provided great exercises for demonstrating models and also prompted great discussions amongst my colleagues and I on how we implement these in the workplace
Lyn Cyrill–Melbourne Theatre Company
Great workshop which was flexible to our needs both before the sessions and during as concerns and questions were raised. Rose is a fantastic facilitator with a great wealth of experience and knowledge that helped our group to brainstorm ideas to resolve our existing issues and personal shortfalls
Eliza Neil–Melbourne Theatre Company
Rose is a great speaker that encouraged participation from everyone. Her content delivery was very good
Deborah Freeman – Eastern Health Clinical School

Tanya Veronica – Eastern Health Clinical School
Rose was great, clear, very easy to listen to – I didn’t get bored or distracted The day went really fast with really relevant material and interesting topics
Anita Varga–PNORS Technology Group P/L
The course was interactive with solid direction and positive guidance. I loved how Rose had really delved into the pre course surveys and expected individual outcomes
Liz Askew–Accenture Autralia
Thanks for the workshop – I have gained a little more information on what I have already learned on courses like this one. Suzanne was fantastic and engaging – she shared good stories and demonstrations
The course provided relevant and useful information which was delivered by a professional trainer that is knowledgeable on the subject. Suzanne was able to understand various personalities and how to relate to each effectively without judgement
Suzanne was very energetic, practical and fun. Glad I could share with my team
Excellent workshop straight to the point, very easy going and relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend this course based on the relevant information provided by the facilitator, this is very useful
The facilitator Suzanne was really brilliant, she tailored the workshop to our needs and whilst putting a lot of humour into her workshop, she certainly facilitated a very engaging and informative session. She covered dealing with various personality types both in the workplace and external clients, and without judgement determining their needs and expectations. Also approaching someone about a difficult issue and how to phrase that concern without offending that individual. It certainly enlightened me as to the different personality types and why they behave the way they do and what the individuals expectations are. Though only 4 hours I felt as though I learnt so much more out of it in a short timeframe, the information was concise and can be put into practice within the workplace. The training provider ICML did quite a bit of information gathering prior to our attendance to this workshop, having us complete a pre course survey and our expectations of the workshop. When we went into the training they had a broad understanding of our group dynamics, organizational background, clientelle and issues that we deal with in the workplace, which I felt added value to the whole experience.
