The Spontaneity Shop Communications Training

Our Courses

We prefer to design each piece of work to our clients' needs, but the following may provide a useful starting point...

What kind of event?

Seminar / plenary / conference (usually 20+ attendees)
Trainers from The Spontaneity Shop are all confident performers and speakers and can offer a number of high-impact, interactive, shorter sessions, suitable for big audiences. These include...
  • The Secrets of Storytelling: how narrative structures can help you to present and communicate more effectively
  • Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway: how anxiety and fear of the future saps our talent and how to avoid this
  • How to be a Charismatic Woman in a Man's World: Deborah Frances-White's revolutionary take on gender and personal power
  • Creativity is all in the Mind: how to put yourself and those around you in a creative state
Workshop (usually 6-12 attendees)
Our workshops run from half day sessions (three hours) to two days and cover a range of topics.
  • The Charisma Key: the secrets of personal power anyone can learn
  • The Creativity Key: putting yourself in a creative state and inspiring others to come up with amazing ideas of their own, with specific examples relevant to your team
  • Teambuilding Day: learn the secrets of comedy improvisation - fun, instructive and bonding (and not as scary as it sounds)
  • Storytelling: discover the DNA of stories and learn how narrative techniques can improve communication of any kind, with members of the group telling personal stories
  • Presentations: charisma + storytelling = impactful pitches and presentations that really work
  • Negotiations: use your charisma as well as modern negotiation techniques to find win-win outcomes
Coaching programmes (one-on-one or small teams)
These are typically longer programmes of shorter sessions, say 6 x 2 hours. Topics include

  • Management and leadership: the transition into management makes tough demands on your soft skills
  • Client relationships: how you are seen by the outside world
  • Train the trainer: passing on our training techniques to your team of trainers
Special events
For some clients we have run much bigger events.
  • The Year of Living Dangerously: a months-long programme tackling anxiety in all its forms.
  • Storytellers Club: a regular night where your people can tell their stories.
