Advanced Communication Skills For Everyone

We offer in-person, virtual and hybrid trainings of varying lengths and commitment levels, designed to elevate professionals to a level of mastery, finesse and influence. Explore our offerings!

Own The Room Communication Gateway Hike


The famous Own The Room experience. No matter your job function, seniority level, or industry, clear and convincing communication is fundamental to success. You will master the most important competencies in communication while having a lot of fun along the way!

CORE: Ascent Communication Essentials


The next stage after CORE: Base. Build on what you’ve learned, take engagement to the next level, and climb closer to mastery.​

Collaborative Negotiation


Negotiation can feel intimidating, but it’s a critical skill for building long-lasting and valuable business relationships. Learn negotiation skills to create value and ​develop a reputation for fairness.​

Media Training


Thought leadership. Brand ambassadorship. The ​definition of “media-facing” keeps broadening – ​industry events, firesides, interviews, podcasts, panels, ​social. This program will help you face the media with confidence and tact.​

C-Suite Conversations


Imagine-you’ve just been asked to present your latest idea to the executive team. It might be next month; it might be next week; it might be... tomorrow. After your initial reaction subsides (panic? excitement?), what will you do to prepare? Discover mindsets and techniques to help you stand out in front of any senior audience (internal or external), persuade them to take action, and handle challenging questions and objections. You’ll be prepared to confidently communicate your ideas to audiences of any seniority level... any time.

Empowering Mindset


Boosting our self-assurance is a must for career progression. In this training, we look at what is holding us back from moving forward. We examine our mindset around risk and challenges. We embrace techniques that transform doubt and uncertainty into tangible action. We look at what showing up as more confident can mean for us. Whether you are senior level or a new graduate, this training is essential for our workplace performance and life-long growth.



When faced with challenges, resilience is one of the fundamental skills needed to overcome and adapt to all obstacles, be it in work or in life. Adopting a mentally agile mindset can help recognize opportunities, navigate the negative, reduce time wasted on worrying, as well as increase productivity and build stronger relationships. This thought provoking and introspective session will help employees, team members, managers and leaders to befriend disruption and gain the skills needed to excel in a fast-paced, continuously changing environment.

Engage Your Audience


When you feel like you’re part of something, suddenly it matters more. You pay attention. You remember. You take action. When your colleagues and clients truly feel engaged, you’ll earn trust and inspire follow-through. Discover expert strategies to ensure that everyone at the table has a voice – and is heard! Gauge comprehension, read and react in real time, and create conversations that drive results.​

Open & Close With Purpose


You can craft the most compelling opening line, but if you don’t close with purpose, will anyone follow through? Conversely, you might have an inspiring close, but if you didn’t capture attention at the beginning, will anyone hear you? Your opening and closing moments impact how you’re perceived and whether your listeners focus or fade away. Learn exactly how to hook your listeners, establish credibility, and craft a captivating story that inspires action.​​

Powerfully Concise & Better Questions


The secret to more powerful and productive conversations? Talk less! Great communicators spend most of their time seeking to understand by actively listening and digging beneath the surface. In this session, you’ll learn how to read your audience and ask the right questions to drive your conversation, meeting, or presentation forward.​

Map Out Meetings


Stop the meeting madness! Scrap the boilerplate agenda and make your meetings more effective and efficient by mapping them out backwards. Learn how a “product-driven goals” framework shapes your agenda, determines who should attend, and what you will achieve. Get more done more quickly, make room for a lot more happiness, and permanently delete “Why am I in this meeting?” once and for all from chat.

“I presented at our Facebook Marketing Partner Summit yesterday. I leveraged a few tactics from your class: I kicked things off with a polling question, I moved across the stage and stopped on my key points, I used body animation to bring the concepts to life or point out a key point in my slide – I nailed this presentation and it felt SO GOOD!”
