The ability to influence others and manage conflict is a valuable business skill that can have a profoundly positive impact on your working life.

The first day of this two-day experiential programme focuses on tried-and-tested theories and powerful techniques. The second day provides you with the opportunity to put them into practice with a team of actors in a safe, relaxed and fun environment, where you’ll receive plenty of constructive feedback.
