CDP Impact is a communications coaching practice committed to helping our clients create the impact they desire whether in the meeting room, in the conference hall or in front of the media.

Our highly experienced coaches help executives make the most of their internal and external relationships with bespoke courses designed to address individual challenges, helping them tell their stories more effectively.

Our practice specialises in four areas:

Executive presence

Before you can influence a meeting or a person, you have to be aware of yourself and the impact you create. This course covers preparation techniques, the creation of clear and compelling content, how to be memorable, making the right first impression, finding your voice and when to use it, as well techniques for effective use of body language and controlling nerves.

Presentation coaching

Whether a pitch, a panel discussion or a keynote speech the objectives are the same: To influence, inspire and engage our audience. The CDP Impact presentation coaching course combines academic research with experience to help individuals tell their story in a compelling and memorable way. Focusing on content creation, structure and delivery we ensure our clients make the most of every opportunity.

Media training

Our approach is based on decades of experience working in the media and preparing leaders at critical times. We know what a journalist is looking for in a story and how to create and deliver the compelling content needed to cut through the editorial process in print and broadcast. Our courses prepare our clients for proactive media interaction as well as media engagement in times of crisis.

Written content

Every leader has a story to tell. We help CEOs and senior executives communicate their (and their company’s) story clearly and consistently across every platform. Our team of experienced speech writers has worked at the highest level of politics and business and are skilled at crafting arguments for internal and external audiences. We know the value of using social media to communicate a message and convey corporate values. We can help you nail your narrative so that your annual report becomes a valuable communication tool rather than a document that gathers dust. Well-informed employees make for happy and energised teams and using staff newsletters, blogs and internal websites is vital way to explain where a company is going and why. Our talented writers will help you turn them into a valuable motivational tool.

Whether a pitch, a panel discussion or a keynote speech the objectives are the same: To influence, inspire and engage our audience. The CDP Impact practice combines academic research with high level experience to help individuals tell their story in a compelling and memorable way.

All our courses can be designed to be delivered one-to-one, in groups or in workshops.
