Turpin Communication

Business Communication. Untangled.


  • Presentation Skills Training

    We focus on business results. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, or gaining alignment—all of our training is designed to help people be more comfortable, effective, and confident communicators. When employees communicate more effectively, their leadership skills improve and their careers advance. That means good things for your team and your company.

    Untangling a Lifetime of Knots

    Many businesspeople come to our workshops tied up in knots about what they need to do to communicate better. Some worry about the best way to prepare for and manage face-to-face communication. Sometimes this leads to inefficient overpreparation or frustrating attempts to follow advice that’s not right for them. Other people struggle to find the right way to manage their nervousness.

  • Meeting & Facilitation Skills Training

    Our meeting facilitation training helps businesspeople lead and contribute to meetings that get business done. Sometimes meetings are routine.

    We understand how expensive inefficient meetings are, both in terms of the money and time they squander and the goodwill they slowly chip away.

  • Training for Trainers

    Our training for trainers builds the skills learning and development professionals, “accidental trainers,” and subject matter experts (SMEs) need to present information and facilitate adult learning.

    Our training for trainers focuses on improving self-awareness, helping trainers adapt to the needs of business learners, and building the insight necessary to keep training content in the business context.

    Unlearning Old Habits and Building New Ones

    Much of what we do in the training room involves asking trainers to unlearn long-held beliefs about adult learning. Some training techniques, such as ice breakers and activities that waste time, need to be carefully examined and replaced with more effective and efficient delivery approaches. During our training for trainers, we facilitate discussions and help trainers identify what content and activities should stay, what should go, and what should be updated.
