Your BOP videos were the best thing I have ever invested in. The advice given to me after watching the videos and being able to talk to Peter, one of your BOP team was so valuable before my big presentation, which went down a treat. Many thanks

What can I expect on a BOP course?
First we’ll talk to you to identify your needs from the training, and we will then assemble a programme of relevant exercises and experiences designed to fulfil your brief...
BOP training courses are very active. There’s no sitting at desks, no form-filling, no whiteboards or PowerPoint. There are no cameras! We start with a series of ice-breaker games that teach key points through metaphor. Nobody is made to feel uncomfortable, but gradually the spotlight is turned on identifying the individual’s own style of communication.
There follows, depending on the client brief, a series of practical exercises that teach the participants key areas of how we communicate with each other. These principal toolkits are unique to BOP, and have proved to be the lasting USP of the company. Highly effective and easily applied, these tools identify the way we all communicate brilliantly, and allow participants to engineer their skills to consistently make the right impact on their ‘audience’.
A crucial part of the workshop is rehearsal; learning to rehearse communications, to rehearse objections or finding the right form of words is a key feature of the session. This leads to the practical ‘doing it’ part! Whether it’s presentations, pitching or crucial conversations, all participants get to try out their honed skills in front of an audience and to receive positive, critical feedback from both colleagues and tutors.
Any BOP course ends with a feedback session that focuses on the course’s immediate impact and pinpoints how the participants’ behaviour is going to change the following day. Ultimately, these are not just work skills – these are life skills.
Do I have to be with a company to attend a BOP course?
You do not have to come on a course with a company, as BOP regularly holds open courses on communication and presentation skills in one of our training venues and you are able to access these by contacting BOP and registering an interest....
Courses look primarily at the foundation skills required in developing a good communication skills base before enabling you to apply these new found skills through a more advanced and intense environment.
Courses are a great way to develop skills and network across industries and skill bases.
