Then my Communicate to Connect program is just for you! 

“If you can’t communicate and talk to other people and get across your ideas, you’re giving up your potential.” 

– Warren Buffett

As the world leverages the power of technology, digital and social media, virtual reality, automation and AI, effective interpersonal communication skills are no longer considered a nice-to-have ‘soft skill’.

Rather, the ability to effectively communicate information and ideas has become one of the most critical skills required if you want to achieve your potential and make a positive contribution to your customers, team, peers, organisation, industry, community or society at large. The Communicate to Connect program is designed to help you become a more purposeful and effective communicator in all areas of your work so that you can maximise your success and impact.

Following my proven Connection Point Framework, you will learn the four communication principles and 10 communication practices required to connect with your audience during every interaction, whether it’s one person or one thousand.

During the program, you will learn the science behind effective communication; the art of each fundamental communication skill; and – most importantly – how to implement each skill into your day-to-day communication. More specifically, we’ll cover:


The communication process


Self-awareness and discovery


Communication conflict


Barriers to effective communication


Communication style


Listening to understand


Written communication skills


Verbal communication skills


Non-verbal communication skills


Symbolic communication


Thinking like a leader


Establishing your personal brand


Earning trust


Demonstrating confidence


Building your leadership presence

By the end of the program you will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, resources and confidence to Communicate to Connect, setting the stage for you to:

  • inform, inspire, influence and persuade your teams, customers, peers, industry, networks and community
  • fast-track your business, team and personal success
  • And realise your contribution – and potential – as a leader.

But don’t take my word for it – here’s what previous participants have said:

I’m armed with techniques I had no idea about that have helped me communicate more clearly, succinctly and confidently plus understand my style vs. others’ and how to communicate and work best with both. I not only enjoyed our sessions but positively looked forward to them. Cath made me feel comfortable to try, fail and grow. This course gives you an armoury of communication tools to go into battle with so you thrive, versus survive. I only wish I did it years ago. Cath is a consummate professional with empathy and humour in spades.


Program Manager

The Communicate to Connect program has helped me to realise the power of communication in any form. I always thought communication was as simple as delivering a message but it really has the power to connect, influence and build my own personal brand. The sessions are well structured including some theory and most importantly practical and relevant tips to my workplace environment. I have become more aware of who I am and what I want others to see, which makes me feel more confident and assertive when communicating. Taking this coaching is definitely one of the best investments I have ever made. Thanks Catherine!


Senior Consultant

You have provided me with many actionable strategies that have helped me build on my communication skills and overall confidence. This is something that not only I have noticed but also my colleagues. I had one colleague come up to me and say “whatever it is that you’re working on with your communications coach has really helped you. I can really notice a difference” and then another separately say “that presentation you just gave was really inspiring and makes me excited to be working on this project”. To know others have noticed is a fantastic testament to the course you’ve developed. Thanks for everything Cath! It’s been fantastic. Highly recommend this course!



How is the Communicate to Connect program delivered?

There are two delivery options to choose from. Each option consists of 12 sessions:

  • The individual program ($3,495 + GST) is highly personalised and tailored to your specific requirements, communication needs and schedule. Each session includes both learning and coaching based on your unique communication challenges and opportunities. Sessions are 60-minutes and can be held at the Behind The Scenes office in Sydney’s Northern Beaches; at your Sydney-based office or a suitable Sydney location; or online via Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts or similar.
  • The online group mastermind program ($1,495 + GST) is a more structured option which runs four times a year. There are only 5 places available for each intake. The sessions are held on the same day and at the same time every week for 12 weeks, with more of a focus on learning. Sessions are 45-minutes and are held over Zoom. A private WhatsApp group is also used to share learnings and ask questions.

Whichever option you choose you can expect the following:

  • Before each session you will receive some prep work to complete. This may be background reading, a self-assessment, writing or an exploratory exercise. The prep work allows you to maximise your session time so you further your understanding.
  • During the sessions we’ll discuss your key learnings, observations and challenges from the previous week, before delving into the next communication practice. Each session you’ll learn new tools and techniques to help you develop your communication capabilities.
  • After every session you’ll receive an email with actionable steps to ensure you immediately put the knowledge, frameworks, tools and techniques into practice during your day-to-day interactions.
  • Throughout the program you have exclusive access to me as your virtual communications coach, working ‘behind the scenes’ to hold you accountable and keep your communication development on track.
