The ability to influence others is at the core of successful business communication. Without it, our ability to negotiate, manage, lead, sell, educate or govern is made more difficult. Influencers inspire and motivate others. They win sales, they win arguments and they change minds.
“Titles mean little in terms of real power, which is the capacity to influence and inspire. People will commit to certain individuals who on paper possess little authority, but instead possess pizzazz, drive, expertise, and genuine caring for team-mates and products”.
Colin Powell, ex- army General and US Secretary of State.

“I had reached a plateau in my career and I needed to up my game. My speech and communication skills were holding me back but I failed to see how this could be improved. With some tuition from Kate Lee I learnt to speak with more clarity within just one month. The transformation was incredible, not only did Kate develop my speech but she also taught me skills that helped me manage myself which in turn has enhanced my teams performance and output. A priceless investment now enabling me to reach for new heights. Thank you Kate.”
“Kate has worked with a large number of my clients, from president and vice president to project manager and senior engineer over the last five years. She has a unique ability to establish trust and rapport with all types of people, enabling them to identify how they come across, and more importantly, how they can change the impact they have.”
