I believe that having the correct social and interpersonal skills can significantly change the lives and experiences of our youths and young adults. Whilst digital media has assisted with academic learning it has often been to the detriment of social and interpersonal skills. We know that many families don’t sit round a dining table and therefore the appropriate manners and etiquette that should be observed in a formal dining environment remain a mystery for many. I believe passionately that communication, etiquette, image and social skills are life skills that should be available to all of our young people which is why I offer personal development programmes to schools, colleges and universities. I want to ensure that our young people are adequately equipped with the life and social skills they need to feel confident in any situation.
Personal development programmes for schools, colleges and universities
I offer life-changing, confidence building life and social skills programs for schools, colleges and universities. Your students can learn and be coached on a 1-2-1 basis if they or their parents choose but I normally find that groups sessions work the best for young people. From 1-2 hour workshops to a full day of training and coaching. I believe that people learn best through experience so all of my programmes are highly interactive and use blended learning techniques to appeal to different learning styles. I don’t have ready made personal development programmes for schools, colleges and universities instead I prefer to tailor make to meet the specific needs of your student or students. You can choose from any of the image, communication, etiquette or behaviour topics on the website, here are just some of the topics that your students might benefit from:
- Verbal communication. Knowing how to make, break and build rapport with people you like and dislike. Effortless conversation and the safe subjects to talk about.
- Public speaking
- What is your body language saying?
- What personal impact are you making?
- Positive body image
- Style with convention
- Techniquette- the etiquette of mobile and digital communication
- Social etiquette
- Dining etiquette
- Employability skills
Tailor made soft skills for schools, colleges and universities
We will discuss your objectives and what you want to achieve for your students over what time frame. Don’t want to include a topic that’s fine we’ll leave it out. Don’t see what you are looking for then please ask, if it’s anything to do with personal image, etiquette, communication or behaviour then I am sure I have got it covered. I know that budgets can be tight in schools, colleges and universities but don’t let cost be deciding factor. I will work with you and the budget that you have to get the best possible outcome. Together, let’s make an investment in personal development to ensure that the students from your school, college or university stand head and shoulders above the rest.
I want to make the process of growing from a teenager into adulthood a memorable experience for all the right reasons. Sure, being young is a time when you make mistakes and feel embarrassed but just being armed with a few life and social skills could make the whole process of maturing into a young adult much more enjoyable. I have worked in the corporate arena for over 25 years and I still meet people who have not acquired the correct business and social skills and guess what often it has help them back in their career and their profession. Make sure your students are well rounded individuals able to adjust and adapt to new situations and challenges.
