Posted by Hannah Vickers | June 07, 2017 | Events

The leading global training provider has announced three new courses, designed for working with women at each stage in their career - from graduates, middle managers and women on the path to senior roles - with the skills needed to succeed in male-dominated corporate environments.  

The courses aim to teach women to communicate with authority, authenticity and impact in their professional roles, through a range of body, language, breath and voice training. 

The options include:

  • Confidence and Presence for Women (Take the Stage) - a one-day, entry-level course that helps female graduates the make the transition from higher education to the corporate world. The course aims to enable women to sustain their assurance in their personal ability at the beginning of their careers, whilst also equipping them with the tools needed to meet the common challenges often faced by women in business.
  • Impact and Influence for Women (Step into the Spotlight) - Aimed at women in middle management. this course focuses on empowering women with the skills, confidence and belief to put themselves forward for more senior positions.  
  • Executive Presence for Women (Hold your Space) - the senior-level programme, this option includes 3 workshops, and focuses on the skills needed to transform performance in the workplace at the highest levels of business. 

With each course, participants are taught to deliver a commanding presence and to develop confidence and strong communication skills, with the aim to lead with greater authority and transform their performance in the workplace.

Liz Barber, Client Director at RADA in Business, said: “We’re delighted to offer these courses. We have worked with women in business for well over a decade to overcome the common challenges they often face in the corporate world, and our aim with this new range of courses is to equip them with the skills they need to make sure they are heard, own their own space, and have the impact they desire.

“By offering courses for women at different stages in their career, we are able to ensure each course reflects the individual needs and challenges of women at various levels. They cover everything from developing a personal brand and getting themselves noticed, to enabling them to stand out in in a boardroom dominated by men, or in environments in which it may still not be usual for women to excel to the top.

“The courses are designed to enable and empower women to be their best version of themselves, at work and beyond, to develop the skills to overcome the hurdles and bias they may encounter on their journeys to the top.”

The announcement follows RADA in Business’s hugely successful Executive Presence for Women programme.
