Bust the 5 big communication myths
Do you struggle with difficult stakeholders? Is this holding you back from achieving your potential?
Would you like to be able to develop elite-level skills to confidently deal with stakeholders?
Metadata Training has teamed up with Richard Mullenders, a former hostage negotiator now turned trainer to teach you how to influence stakeholders.
You are measured on results and results are dependent on other people. It makes business sense to spend time to learn to deal with people confidently and effectively.
You can bring your own challenges and discuss them with the trainer during the course.
The content will be taught to you in 3 sessions.
During the course you will practise using examples from the business analyst and project manager work life.
This course is aimed at business analysts, project managers and any professional who needs to sell their ideas to stakeholders for project success.
Being a challenging and interactive course, it is a great option for professionals who are actively looking to improve themselves and add value to their organisations.
If you feel you have the technical skills but a lack of soft skills are holding you back from achieving your potential, then this is the training for you.

After military service (where Richard saw action in Northern Ireland, and spent time guarding Rudolf Hess in Spandau Prison) he went into the private sector and then joined the Metropolitan Police. After decades as a detective investigating serious crimes, Richard was invited to become a hostage negotiator. His success was such that he was appointed Lead Trainer at the National Hostage and Crisis Unit at Scotland Yard, training hostage negotiators across the UK.
During this time Richard was involved in an advisory capacity with the FBI, the UN, The Indian Secret Services, The Scorpions in Mandela’s South Africa and The World Food Programme, among others.
Talks with the Taliban
Richard’s activities in defence of British subjects abroad are largely confidential. However, he was part of the team that negotiated the high-profile release of three UN workers held hostage in Afghanistan in 2004. And his listening expertise contributed to the intelligence that informed the rescue of Norman Kember in Iraq in 2006.
Life or death listening training
Richard now speaks and trains for the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. This latest stage in his career has seen him fulfil speaking and training engagements in every corner of the globe. He’s helped people to achieve ambitious outcomes – from Downing Street to PwC, from LinkedIn to BT, and from Cambridge University to Sky UK. And he can help you, and your people, to do the same.
