Impact and Influence


Impact and Influence courses
Make great lasting first impressions
Influence and persuade more successfully
Develop presence, charisma and gravitas

Your people are always making an impact. Always. Other people form judgements of them within seconds, whether you like it or not and whether you realise it or not. But are they making the right impact? And are they able to influence others? Whether in person or in a virtual meeting, it’s important to understand the impact you’re making at all times.

Speak First offers a range of courses to help people at all levels improve their impact, so heads turn as they enter a room and people listen attentively when they speak. We provide valuable techniques to help your people raise their profile and project a powerful personal brand. We can also help people influence more consistently – whether they’re meeting a new colleague for the first time, pitching to a long-standing customer, or seeking buy-in from the board.

Some people aspire to more than impact – they want to have presence, charisma and gravitas, so they look and sound the part in a senior role, or are credible to others at Director or C-Level. We offer advanced courses and coaching in which we share the secrets of those with the ‘wow’ factor – who seem to find it easy to persuade and convince everyone they meet.

All our learning solutions stand on their own as high-quality and high-impact interventions, but they’re at their very best when delivered as part of a wider programme. We can work with you to build a personalised programme that meets your own specific needs. We can seamlessly blend together virtual classrooms, face-to-face sessions, 1-2-1 and group coaching and more, to give you choice and flexibility.
