Training and Coaching

With over thirty years experience in translating and managing complex environments, extensive lecturing and training experience and postgraduate qualifications, Robert Olding is well placed to provide training, mentoring and coaching. Robert also appreciates that training time is time not spent in your business, so training is generally provided at your premises to minimise costs, time and disruption. Additionally, as this is an evolving special interest for Robert, fees are very competitive and quoted on a per session rather than per attendee basis.

Please contact Robert to discuss your training, coaching and mentoring needs. Some current offerings include:

Public Speaking / Presentations for Introverts

Public Speaking/Presenting for Introverts

To succeed in modern careers, every professional must be able to present to groups large and small.  Yet many people still find this very challenging. This light-hearted, but effective, workshop is presented at your premises and takes about 2 hours depending on the amount of participation by attendees.  Non-threatening, interactive, but definitely no role plays!  The emphasis is on the personal and professional growth that comes through overcoming fear of public speaking.

Introductory price for South-East Queensland clients:

$650 plus GST – per 2 hour workshop, not per attendee.
Catering is not provided. Clients in other regions, please contact Robert to discuss arrangements.

Individual coaching also available.

Cost negotiable.

Effective Writing
You epitomise the 3 Cs – calm, clear and concise and are a master at avoiding unnecessary and unwarranted technical language and legalism. Second Commissioner of Taxation

Effective Writing – One-on-one/small group coaching

Do you have staff who are excellent at technical analysis but struggle to translate their work into concise and effective writing?  Are you a university student needing help with assignment writing?  Are you about to leave university and want to improve your writing before you start full-time work?  Are you concerned about your son or daughter’s writing? 

If so, this inexpensive but effective service could be just right for you. Robert has always enjoyed writing.  His training in clear and effective writing began as a young articled clerk when he was privileged to work for a master solicitor who trained him in clear and concise writing.  His interest was ignited further when he was one of a small number of external consultants engaged to assist with the rewrite of the then sales tax law in the early 1990s.  He has pursued the interest further ever since, attending and presenting courses on writing public rulings and effective legal writing. With this background and having spent over thirty years translating some of the most complex material into an understandable form, Robert is well-placed to assist with your writing challenges.

Training courses can be helpful but translating learning into the real world professional environment is the objective.  Robert has come to believe that the most effective and efficient way of doing so is through one-on-one or small group coaching, preferably using real, current projects.

This service is available to government departments and firms wanting to assist their key staff, students and parents (Robert holds a Blue Card and the service is provided at your premises, by telephone and email or using documents shared online).

Fees are negotiable, depending on circumstances and the commitment involved.

Please contact Robert to discuss your particular requirements.
