A unique training and development program themed as ‘Power of Effective Communications and High Impact Presentations’ has been designed and will be launched on 27 September, from 9 a.m. for a full day, at Cinnamon Lakeside, by Spectrum Trainers and Corporate Consultants.

Spectrum is dedicated to nurturing, transforming and empowering corporate team leaders and corporate executives as well as aspiring professionals to hone and fine tune their skills of leadership and personal capacities to be able to contribute at incremental levels to achieve sustainable performance excellence.

The vision of Spectrum is to build leadership skills and personal capacities as a means of supporting career growth of the next generation of corporate heads.

This latest training program by Spectrum has been structured, based on research amongst corporate executives and participants at the previous very successful training program. Those who were surveyed provided valuable information on career growth needs and on corporate expectations. It is based on this invaluable feedback that the program on communications and presentations has been designed and structured.

This program has accordingly been designed to be an exclusive empowerment, coaching and mentoring program that will inspire participants to further sharpen practical application of communication tips and presentation skills that will provide the edge to sharpening personal capacity and capabilities.

This program has been structured with a mentoring and peer review aspect being incorporated into the practical, hands on personal development that will be encouraged during the program. There will be follow up actions that will be required to ensure that participants can apply the training absorbed into further personal development. It is a specific objective that this will be a training program with a difference – and that it is not restricted to the day of the program; but that it has a unique, on-going personal developmental learning aspect, that enables participants to monitor their own progress.

Spectrum has brought together an experienced resource panel for this next program to be held on 27 September.
