Corporate Workshops

The world around us and the way we do business is experiencing unprecedented levels of change. Success now more than ever depends upon what are known as ‘forever’ skills; the skills you will use throughout your career regardless of your technical expertise, the job you are doing, your seniority or where you are working. These forever skills are the focus of my corporate workshops and include skills such as communication, mindsets, presentation, productivity, coping, innovation, creativity, managing change, dealing with the tough stuff and much much more.

The workshops have been designed for you and your team to be unique, interactive and engaging. They draw upon extensive corporate experience and are jam packed with practical skills that are relevant to your every day, easy to understand and implement. All workshops are warm and adopt a light-hearted approach to even the most challenging of topics. Petris believes you are already familiar with the stresses and challenges of your working environment and focuses instead on making things better, helping you feel more confident and energised and giving you solutions.

Relax knowing that your staff will be engaged, appreciative and from all I have heard … talking about their experience and learnings afterwards in the staff room. Some of the ratings received from Petris Lapis workshops are shown.

We came back to work straight away and shared what we learnt this morning with the rest of the staff and already we are trying to work out how we can implement some strategies in our workplace.

Petris was very engaging. I really loved the way she presented the concepts and materials in a matter of fact and practical way. It makes it more credible and practical to practice in this profession.

Thank you Petris – it was great to receive relevant information on this topic that I can apply in my role. And awesome work – I appreciate your bravery in keeping it real!

You were very well received and [participants] are still talking about points you raised … firms are keen to get you over to NZ you made such a big impact.
