Many workplaces have difficulty dealing with internal gossip, personality clashes and conflict, as well as challenging clients and customers. Create the workplace you want through the power of Assertive Communication.

  • Is your team not functioning to its greatest potential?
  • Do you find it a challenge to give your staff effective feedback?
  • Are misunderstandings and confusion costing your organisation time and money?

Discover how to listen with empathy and communicate clearly and concisely. Learn how to tell people that their behaviour is unacceptable without creating conflict.

Most people think effective communication is only about talking. The real power in communication and getting the results you want comes from your ability to assertively speak and assertively listen. Without these tools in your toolbox of communication skills your organisation will struggle to meet its goals and objectives. Phil's powerful communication training will provide those tools. He will help you and your staff grow and develop as powerful communicators so you can resolve your own conflicts and create a more productive and enjoyable workplace.


Recent research revealed that 42% of staff experienced their manager or team leader providing little or no support, showing no interest in their team, did not listen and did not understand the issues their team members face.

I did my first public speaking workshop with Phil about 3 years ago and from the outset I felt that my skills improved substantially. About a year later I did some more training and gained further invaluable improvement on my overall communication skills. Recently I was asked to deliver a key note speech to about 100 small business owners. I immediately approached Phil to refresh my skills and I am very glad that I did – at the first one-on-one session Phil gave me the confidence to put down my notes and coached me to speak from the heart and interact with the audience. As the whole training was recorded on video it was easy to see the dramatic improvement in my delivery. On the day I felt confident and although the nerves were never completely relaxed, I was able to deliver a great 20 minute speech to an attentive audience who didn’t hesitate to praise me during the Q&A session that followed. I would not hesitate to recommend Phil to anyone looking at acquiring public speaking skills or improving their current skills. I am now looking forward to doing future presentations.
-Patrick Marion, Director, Citiwide Homeloans

I would recommend this course to anyone that wants to improve their communication, especially in the work environment or family/relationship. The course gives you the tools to communicate at a higher level and teaches you conflict resolution. It gives you the ability to listen and as a result achieve amazing outcomes. Phil's interactive style allows the group to work to a deeper level creating a unique bond amongst the group. Great outcomes flow from that, as we all experienced.
