The Executive Communicator™

“Great leaders are made, not born. And great leaders are great communicators”.

An executive’s ability to communicate well when the stakes are high is not a ‘nice-to-have’ but a ‘must-have’.

Your or your executives’ speaking ability in presentations, pitches, Board meetings, media interviews, crisis communications and internal team building is a core competency, fundamental to your and your organisation’s success.

And the more senior you or they are, the more the expectation and the more judgement, regardless of your or their highly recognised operational and technical credentials and qualifications.

75% of executives want to speak better. Are you or your executives in the 75%?

Our flagship program, The Executive Communicator™, has been developed as a result of 20 years of experience in training leaders – from subject matter experts to middle management, senior C-suite and Board levels – to speak and speak well.

Communicate on your terms.

Communication & Media Manoeuvres is Australia’s leading specialist speaking, training and coaching organisation. We give leaders and spokespeople the skills to communicate with presence, power and persuasion when the stakes are high.

Perhaps you have to make a multi-million-dollar case to PowerPoint-weary stakeholders. Maybe you’ve been called to present and answer questions before the Board or a tough Senate estimates or government hearing or a Royal Commission. Or you might just need the skills to stick to key messages in a media interview under pressure. Or perhaps you need to provide expert comment in the media, simplifying the complex without disrespecting the thinking behind it.

We have 20 years’ experience of training all levels of executive leaders and spokespeople across Australia and internationally. Many of Australia’s high-profile leaders and iconic clients have been with us from the beginning and developed their skills with us during their executive career progression. Many of our clients credit us with their career progression through their learned speaking abilities to connect, engage and influence.

We work with corporate affairs, communications professionals, people and culture, and leadership learning & development teams to prepare leaders and spokespeople to speak with clarity and confidence.
