1. Who is the programme for?

This programme is for anyone who has difficulty talking in front of others and wants to learn the skills necessary to improve their communication and confidence.

2. How is the programme delivered?

The course is run in small groups. The maximum number we take on the programme is 10. Everyone delivers presentations during the day and receives one to one coaching on how they are perceived and how to improve them. We also use video to highlight how much progress is made throughout the day. For many people this can be a life changing experience.

3. It sounds exciting.

It is!  For many delegates who have taken part; it has been a life changing experience. We have had people who have walked into the programme with very little self confidence and then within a few weeks have been delivering presentations confidently to over 400 delegates. It is designed to enable anyone to operate outside their comfort zone. For many the course has been inspirational, motivational and above all, fun. 

4. Besides learning how to present, are there any other benefits by taking part on the programme?

Absolutely! Self confidence is the greatest asset we possess and those who have taken part have been transformed by this course.  Delegates have reported back on many major benefits in their lives, such as a significant improvement in their self confidence and a much more positive attitude. Because of this, they have been able to take on other challenges in their lives that they previously thought were beyond them.

5. Does the programme qualify for CPD?

There is an 8 hour CPD certificate for taking part on the programme.

Course Testimonials

  • Tom Stapleton

    Hi Ashley
    Just a quick message to thank your for the course you ran last week. I have put it into practise (reluctantly with some patients) and can't believe the responses. Patients I assumed who were happy with their appearance have got all sorts of things they want to get off their chest. The uptake in treatment plan acceptance has markedly increased in just a few days and I wouldn't say I'm exactly slick with my discussions as of yet.
    Hopefully this will carry on!

  • Dr Angelo Lazaris

    Although I was initially sceptical about the value of this course, I was refreshingly surprised to find that Ashley’s approach was the polar opposite of the “hard sell” tactics promoted by others, that treat our patients and profession with contempt. Ashley presented a methodical, comprehensive and well-structured course that caters for all spectrums of private dental practice that I highly-recommend for all dentists and staff. His candour, knowledge and approachability make this course on patient communication and ethical sales techniques a "must do" for anyone who takes the business of dentistry seriously.

  • Dr Kamini Mistry

    Ok, so a week later since the course and I have definitely noticed a change in my mentality and attitude-mainly not assuming or judging patients needs, or being prejudice. My nurse has noticed too, and as a result she is more positive, which is having a great effect on rapport with the patients! I am also not dropping the prices of private treatment :)...I think every day I have been at work since being on the course, I have offered a lot more private work than previously, and to people I wouldn't have expected to be able to afford it...
    Thanks again for your help

  • Dr Graham Murphy

    The course has left me with a lasting impression and changed (cured as you would say) me MUCH for the better, no longer acting like a charity!... I am memorising and practising your teaching daily, especially the cushion ---> Question-->- Else --> Chattering teeth ---> Chip Shop door for overcoming objections, it's really good - really useful!..I find your test close and questions brilliant when conversing with people whether at work or conducting business out of work....See you November then, hopefully with the team !!

  • Dr Matthew J Casey

    Ashley provides a structure to communicate effectively. It centred around rapport building, actively listening to our patients, utilising simple language that our patients understand, establishing the emotional connection or impact that their current dental problems are having in their life and structuring a plan by giving hope and directly giving the patient the solution and focusing in on the benefits of the treatment....I found Ashley highly entertaining, engaging, thought provoking, intelligent and inspiring to learn from and implement required changes...I would certainly recommend this course even to the most experienced, successful dentists as there is always concepts to revise, or something to take away and learn.
