UK trained barristers are universally recognised as the finest advocates in the world. Our select team of trainers consist of leading UK barristers and Queen’s Counsel (QCs). So you will be trained by the best of the best. With decades of experience in high-stakes, high-pressure environments, their leadership and communication skills are second-to-none. Sharply honed expertise in persuading hostile judges, expert witnesses and unsympathetic juries to accept their positions is an invaluable transferable skill that will bring you or your organisation immense rewards.
Each programme is designed to equip you with specific skills. In order to meet the aims and objectives of each course, we will work through an array of specifically designed exercises. The techniques and skills you learn are transferable and can be applied successfully in any context – business, academia or in your personal life.
Our longer Programmes are ILM accredited Leadership Development Programmes. Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate from the Institute of Leadership and Management.* In addition, we have a dedicated Quality Assurance team that rigorously monitors and reviews our curricula, course content, trainers, training methods, and participants feedback in order to continuously improve the content and delivery of our programmes. Those completing our shorter programmes will receive a Counsel For Leadership certificate. We are committed to providing you with a learning experience of the highest standard.
* This applies to programmes of at least three days duration. This does not apply to discounted programmes.
The best way to learn leadership and communication skills is by doing exactly what great leaders and communicators do. You will be given a chance to test out your own techniques and observe the techniques of others. Then we will begin your training, honing your strengths and eliminating your weaknesses. This method allows you the opportunity to reflect on your technique and see for yourself the differences in your ability before and after your training. Participants are generally taught in small group sessions where they can practice new skills in a safe and nurturing environment with like minded individuals.
