People Skills & Communication Techniques Workshops - The key to unlocking people

Teambuilding “It’s better to have a great team than a team of greats”


People Skills – The more you understand your own style of communication, the more you understand other people. Communication and connection is the key


Communication Everyone communicates differently. The more you understand communication, the better you’ll communicate. The better you communicate, the more results you’ll get in every aspect of your life.


Aims of these workshops…


  • To give your team a deeper understanding of how they think, behave, work and communicate, and how to have a better understanding of themselves.
  • Increase their skills when communicating with colleagues, clients and people generally in their work and their private lives.

The programs ARE..

  • Entertaining – your team will laugh a lot. Laughter opens the channels of learning.
  • Interesting – your team will hear content they’ve probably never heard before.
  • Practical & Relevant – the content will be related directly back to each person’s job and their roles at work and outside work.
  • Illuminating – you’ll be surprised at some of the things we cover.
  • High energy – your team will be out of their seats doing things a lot of the time (nothing strenuous).
  • Challenging – your team will be challenged to think in ways they’ve probably not done before.
  • Enlightening – your team will gain a new perspective on how other people think, work and communicate.
  • Revealing – your team will have many Aha moments as they realise why other people are like they are.

How do the communication techniques workshops run?

The workshops have a series of activities interspersed with content to give an understanding of different ways the participants themselves think, behave and communicate.

Based on this understanding, we give a range of examples of how other people behave and communicate and then link them together so your team learns skills to communicate effectively with people who think differently in all aspects of their lives.

There is very little PowerPoint.

The content covers:

  • How people have different types of skills
  • Two types of communication style
  • A magic formula for explaining almost every type of person you come across and how to communicate effectively with each type
  • Some tools to use to look at things in different ways
  • The difference between IQ and EQ and how it can make a world of difference in communication
  • A simple to apply 4 way model of working and communicating styles
  • How to “read” people
  • Body language
  • Plus – Their are always many questions and we answer them all.

All of this is covered through a range of activities that make it all come alive. Your team will leave feeling energised and itching to get home or back to work to “try it out”.

Zane Kenny – Director BQKBQK Accountants


“When we were arranging the communication techniques programs for what David was going to do, he asked me questions about what we needed and wanted. He says, “let me think about that,” and then he came up with a whole model which is just fantastic and is exactly what we needed.

And the fact that he is so flexible and thinks outside the box and he tailors stuff to what people need. He can just pick up the mood in the room.

During the day more and more people kept turning up to his sessions because the staff that had already seen him kept saying “You have to see this guy, he is amazing, I feel fantastic!”

Wow, that’s all everyone was talking about.”  Jennifer – Albany City Council

“I have no hesitation in recommending David Price’s services to business, government and non-profit organisations. He is the best presenter as he makes learning fun and interactive. He always brings out the best in professional development. A man of action!

Julie-Ann Gray – Albany City Council


“My company engaged David to do a Communication Skills workshop with junior accountants who do not get the opportunity to engage with their clients often.  They needed help in how to work a room, and other skills to network effectively, including pitching their services.


What I enjoyed most about David’s presentation was his enthusiasm and relatability with the staff. He was able to adapt the session as it went along based on the feedback of the group and their needs. The fake networking event that David ran had the group moving out of their comfort zone and into a situation similar to what they would encounter at a real networking event. He knows how to stretch people to raise the bar.”
