"Touching base at the end of the training session on how to deliver and listen to difficult conversations, ie using the "I" and not "you" approach - talking about how an issue or action made you feel (less confrontational etc)." "I think the course was very relevant about raising awareness of each other’s communication skills in our teams. I would have loved more time to discuss micro skills around communication. However I was very happy with what we learnt during the training session." -SunnyKids
"Best course I have ever attended. A great day learning from our trainer, manuals, food, environment, information. The way and structure in which the course was run made you feel comfortable and learning easy. I wasn't bored but engaged the whole day. Wasn't made feel pressured or stressed but rather comfortable right from the start. I would highly recommend this course and our trainer and would love to do further courses with this style of training and trainer." "Very relaxed and interactive environment. Learnt a lot about myself and ways I can improve my communication both in the workplace and socially." -Weleda Australia
"I would like thank Joseph for giving an excellent communication training. He is very knowledgeable. The course he teaches has helped me tremendously on bridging my communication gaps and as well as awareness of appropriate level of professional communication. I highly recommend anyone who would like to improve their communication skills to attend this training course." -Transport for NSW
"The most useful thing I gained from this PD is be careful what you say, what you do and how you say it as perceptions leave a lot to be desired. Louise was nice and put in a difficult situation which she was attempting to change my mind set and whilst I appreciate that I also believe everyone has different values." -Vale College
"Very interesting simplifying behaviours that we use daily whilst communicating, breaking it down into parts i.e. body language, tone conveys messages as strongly as words do." "Your company is very lucky to have Mark on board! Mark was probably one of the best presenters/coaches I've ever come across in my 20 year office careers involving countless training sessions on various topics. His energy and demeanour is contagious, and he is very motivating and engaging. I got a lot of value out of the course and his time. I can't wait to put his tips and tricks to use in work AND personal life." -Chubb Insurance Australia Limited
"I found that some of the information i received and learned from the communications course can help me not only with my job but also my everyday life." "The trainer was very knowledgeable on communications in the workplace. He was amicable and display a good sense of humour and provided practicable problems that you could work through together. He provided some wonderful learning games that proved to be humorous and engaging in a group setting. Over all a wonderful training day that has improved my communication skill set." -Community Gro
"It was a pleasing and comfortable atmosphere with good energy. Having all staff together learning the same techniques at once. By learning what traits we are all made of we can work out how to work better with each other. Consider how others work and how you can communicate to get a positive result." -Pittwater House School
"This course was a refresher for me and a valuable learning tool for the work environment. The information clarified boundaries and how to communicate more effectively. Our trainer was thorough and very humorous. Thank you." -Ravenswood School
"Janeen provided excellent courseware structure and made commendable efforts to adapt the presentation to individual’s requirements. Well presented, great activities, and even better facial expressions! Definitely recommended to Sworn/Unsworn members." -Victoria Police
"Leigh is one of the best trainers I have had. His enthusiasm for communication was clearly evident, which made it enjoyable to learn. Leigh built a great rapport with everyone and kept the information relevant. I would highly recommend the course and Leigh as a trainer for any future courses.

Asking Good Questions
When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
We use secure Video Conferencing such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom on request that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
