Communication Skills

print: Absolute Beginners
You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can't get them across, your ideas won't get you anywhere
Lee Iacocca


In today's business world, the ability to communicate clearly has never been more important. So why is it that most people have never had any communications training?

At City Academy we believe that communication skills can be learnt by anyone. Whether you really struggle to get your point across or feel you could communicate so much better if you only knew how, our Communication Skills course will equip you with the confidence and skills to communicate with skill and personality.

And as our business trainers are all highly skilled and experienced artists and performers in their own right, they have a wealth of knowledge and skills that comes from communicating and performing in front of critics and audiences night after night.

Our public courses are limited to 8 people per class.
