Stand out from the crowd

When your message is the same as others, make sure you stand out.

Whether you’re selling expensive services, skills or software, the chances are you sound the same as your competitors. Your main message is certainly similar: buy from us and it’ll prove to be money well spent.

When you get to your feet you need to convince your audience that you are the person, the team, the company to choose.

Talking Trade Communications specialises in helping you to do this. We help you create an impact in front of your audience whether it’s one client, two colleagues or 500 people.

In a sea of sameness we make sure you stand out. You differentiate by performing in a confident, convincing and compelling way. And your audience remembers you.

'I put my team through the presentation skills workshop and was delighted with it.
It was an excellent experience and it also served as a great team bonding exercise.'

We deliver workshops and simulate typical business situations that help you perform in one-to-one or one-to-many situations.

Our clients tell us we make a real difference and add value.

Deliver words and facts in a memorable way

Get your message across and leave a memorable impression.

Workshops are the core of what we offer.

In front of an audience, in a meeting or in a voice conference, you need to get your message across and leave a memorable impression.

Words matter, but words alone don’t communicate. Facts matter, but facts are difficult to remember. We’ll show you how to deliver your words and facts in a memorable way.

You need to communicate clearly in any situation and make a strong, positive impression: you, your ideas, and your company. This is what we do and our clients tell us we are very good at doing it.


If your idea is complex, we can help

We work with people who have a complex solution to sell or complex ideas to communicate.

We work with anyone who …

  • Has a complex idea, concept or solution to sell
  • Wants to learn how to perform in a memorable way
  • Needs to influence, to persuade or inspire
  • Wants their corporate event to be enjoyable and memorable
  • Must leave a positive and unforgettable impression

We specialise in helping individuals who need to get complex concepts across in a way that is easy to understand. We help you deliver your message with conviction and enthusiasm.

The challenges we have helped to address have ranged from making corporate events fun, interesting and memorable to dealing with ‘death by PowerPoint’.

We have found the common factor in all situations is the individual’s need to communicate with confidence. Our approach ensures this happens. Our workshops use a range of techniques to ensure the individual has the chance to repeatedly put new skills into practice.
