  • An understanding of how to plan strategically and tactically for important influencing situations
  • A clear plan for implementing your new skills.


There will be a small amount of pre-work which will be available online on Friday 7 April – you will be required to prepare this and bring it to the event. All other materials will be available on the day.

Feedback from Participants at Catherine's Previous Leadership Network Events

"Catherine's style allows participants to converse with each other, to learn from experiences and mutual mistakes made  and also to disagree with each other in a non-aggressive way. The sessions are thought provoking  and they train listening skills and participants learn to become more aware of themselves and other's needs and weaknesses."H. Kaphengst, Klawitter Theatre Group Ltd
"An excellent topic facilitated in an easy and engaging manner. I learned a lot from Catherine's style and it has given me food for thought around my own style of engagement." J. Marken, Scouting Ireland
"Sound information, well delivered and sensible discussion." - P. Tobin, Mounttown Community - Dún Laoghaire
