Pagefield, the independent comms consultancy, has appointed columnist Philip Collins to the faculty of The Pagefield Academy, which offers clients tailored training courses covering subjects from negotiation skills to risk management.
Collins, former chief speech writer to Tony Blair, will run his first half-day workshop on how to develop and deliver an impactful presentation, or speech, in July at Pagefield’s offices in Soho, London.
Sara Price, founding partner at Pagefield, said: “We launched the Pagefield Academy to offer clients the kind of training and senior support they need to help them through those aspects of their professional lives that keep them awake at night. Some of the most iconic speeches of the Blairite era were crafted by Phil and I am sure that our clients’ confidence will soar after a few hours of his expert tutelage.”
Collins said: “I’m looking forward to giving Academy attendees a few tricks of the trade and, crucially, the confidence to make sure the next time they give a speech, a presentation or even just address a room it is a much better experience for all involved.”
