Benefits to Your Employer

“We had most of the wider team on Think on Your Feet ® and, since completion, have seen aspects of it in everyday communication. The feedback from the client-facing teams, in particular, has been extremely positive. They all feel more confident going into a situation they expect to be difficult. But even just everyday meetings that they do all the time, they’re finding their prep time is faster and they’re running the meetings more smoothly because they have such an easy and solid structure to work to.”
~ Ashley Williams HR and Operations Manager for Pure SEO
I would recommend IMNZ, without hesitation. For the quality of the training and courses, for the variety, for how easy they make everything, and for how honest they are – we’ve never been pitched a course or training session that wasn’t going to work for our business. They take the time to listen and learn about you, your people and your business so they can always suggest the best options.

What Participants Have Said

“When we planned the Think on Your Feet® training for our team during the Covid-19 pandemic, I was apprehensive about the effectiveness of a virtual communication skills programme. It turned out to be extremely impactful! TF®’s toolbox of 6 Plans is powerful. It forces you to think clearly…..and therefore articulate clearly.” 

Purva Pandit

Senior HR Manager, Microsoft India

“After completing the course I feel better about having to deliver presentations and communicate complicated ideas or projects. I learned better ways of structuring my ideas so that I could effectively get my points across in a succinct manner. And I can explain my requirements more clearly for people, which results in less going back and forth for clarification.”

Alex Gatland
