Develop your communication superpower in the world of business

Rob Lambert is a Media Scientist specialising in business communication. In this superpower workshop Rob brings this award winning workshop to your company or conference. Your attendees will learn how to start developing a genuine superpower in the world of work.

In this workshop Rob shares ideas, advice and lessons on speaking effectively, writing clearly, thinking critically and expressing your creativity through effective communication.

Effective communication requires diversity, critical thinking, truth, authenticity, clarity and purpose. Effective communication also happens to be how to release business agility and build workplaces that enrich the lives of people who work in them.

This workshop is now available online as a self-paced text version.

About The Workshop

We cover:

Throughout the session I weave in stories and anecdotes to bring this information to life.

As we start the day with your own DISC profile, you’ll have a richer understanding of where your communication strengths and weaknesses are. It’s a great primer for the day.

Throughout the day I’ll also explain why mastering some elements of communication will help you and how to practice them in everyday work.

It’s a fun, vibrant, creative and thought provoking course, exactly why it’s won Best Tutorial (Twice!!) at the EuroSTAR conference.

Delegates get loads of good ideas during the session, plus a workbook, copies of the deck and a monster list of resources to go forth and practice.

Host the superpower at your company

In-house, at events, or venue based. Discount available for events/conferences.

Why Communication Skills?

Communication skills are a core skill hiring managers look for. Being a good communicator is also a really great trait of effective employees, managers and leaders.

There aren’t many education systems on the planet that teach communication skills, let along companies that teach it to their employees! So it’s no surprise many employees in the workplace aren’t effective at communicating.

I often joke that 99% of problems in business are down to communication – I’m probably not far away from the truth.

Too much. Too little. Ineffective. Untimely.

I help you to solve these problems.

What others have to say

Scott Summers –
DIRECTOR, nFocus Testing

“I knew Rob was a great speaker as I’d seen him present at a number of industry conferences so I had high expectations of the communications workshop. Rob worked with me to understand what we wanted to be delivered and achieved, and then facilitated a jam packed workshop that had something for everyone. Rob’s energy, expertise and amiable presenting style was a big hit with all of us and we left with new skills, insights and practical knowledge.”

“Rob’s Communication Workshop is brilliant. Of all the training I’ve done over my career, it’s the one that’s had the most immediate and positive impact, both on my work and personal life.” Sylvia – attendee


This workshop has won awards, changed people’s lives and is accessible for anyone, no matter your level of knowledge of communication.

So why not invest in your business and team, and help your team to develop behaviours that overcome problems?

You’ll learn how to:

  • Hack your own body to change your physiology!
  • Literally change a hostile work environment into a friendly one
  • Get the right results from emails and other written communication (I give you 10 strategies for better writing)
  • Run effective meetings (who wouldn’t want better meetings?)
  • Listen better
  • Control your non-verbal communication whilst reading other people like a book
  • Get people to keep talking with nothing more than a head nod
  • Control dominating people in meetings
  • Give feedback
  • Present like you’ve been doing Keynotes for years
  • and much much more!

It’s not for the faint hearted though – it’s a fun day, chocked full of information that works and it will be intense.

It will be interactive so expect to get involved, but don’t worry – I do all of the embarrassing stuff.

Expect to be buzzing and wired – but in a good way.
