The Complete Communicator

Life or death communication lessons you won't learn anywhere else.

When did you last listen? Really listen?

Not bide your time until you could get your point across.

Not plan your argument, or jump in with advice. But listen, with your full attention…

So if your life depended on it, or theirs did, and could you say for certain where the other person was coming from and why.


If you recognise yourself here, you’re not alone. We all do it. Or rather don’t.

Listen that is.

Which means we communicate at a disadvantage. Because everything starts with listening. As hostage negotiators, our experts have built their careers on developing elite-level listening skills.

What they share with you will surprise, entertain and challenge you in equal measure.

Life or death lessons you won’t learn anywhere else

  • Imagine you could talk a gunman into handing over his weapon.
  • Persuade a terrorist to reveal the location of a kidnap victim.
  • Reason with a suicidal young woman so she steps away from the edge.

In common with the world’s crack negotiators, what skill would underlie your success?

Oratory? Empathy? Patience?

Along with our Experts, your lead skill would be elite-level listening. All our communication courses teach you to listen as if lives depended on it. The benefits will boost your effectiveness in every area of your life.
