Powerful communication
FOR technical specialists


Audiences today are inundated with exceptional examples of effective communication day after day over a variety of media.  Those images drive expectations.  That consistent level of excellence raises expectations – even for those who are not professional communicators.  Mediocre images, mediocre communication is no longer acceptable.


We all have important messages to deliver.  Many of us prepare to deliver them by focusing on what we will say and spend considerably less time on how we will say it.  In order to communicate in a powerful way, we need to understand and actively manage our physiology – both our body and our voice. 


To do that we need Physical Intelligence – the ability to detect and active manage the balance of certain key chemicals (hormones and neurotransmitters) that dictate how we think, feel, speak and behave.  For example, adrenalin creates excitement, activation and speed. It gives us the energy to meet new challenges, but it can speed us up or leave us feeling overly excited or nervous in presentations or negotiations, making it difficult to communicate succinctly or think clearly. Cortisol, the stress hormone, is responsible for arousal/ excitement, but also anxiety and nerves.  Too much and our decision making as a speaker is impaired.  Neuroscientific research supports that we can utilise ways of breathing, moving, thinking and interacting to manage the balance of those and other key chemicals, enabling us to stress less, achieve more, and communicate more effectively.  For technical specialists, especially those with a scientific background, the chemical foundation of Physical Intelligence is particularly appealing and increases receptivity to the training.

Learning Objectives

Delegates will:

  • Learn how to manage their physiology to sustain the emotional/mental strength required for effective management of physical and vocal skills, and high levels of energy, motivation and positivity to communicate in a compelling way

  • Develop the flexibility required to interact with, influence and adapt to diverse audiences and respond to unexpected changes or challenges

  • Understand and apply resilience techniques and processes to skillfully manage challenging questions or comments and recover quickly from being under scrutiny

  • Prepare and rehearse strategies to build capacity and endurance to maintain energy levels and keep the audience engaged over the course of the presentation

Target Audience

Individuals working in a technical specialist role who need to communicate more effectively
