corporate training and development


Leaders face daily challenges. The Tantalus corporate training and development team equips you to overcome these challenges through the mastery of:

  • Aligning strategy to achieve business goals and objectives
  • Understanding and addressing the agendas of multiple stakeholders
  • Protecting reputation in a rapidly changing stakeholder environment driven by digital technologies
  • Ensuring solid competencies across teams who are often in different geographies and coming from diverse cultural backgrounds

The Tantalus Group’s portfolio of corporate training and development programs helps you and your teams achieve your objectives with tailored courses in the following categories:

  • BUSINESS FOUNDATION (Foundation and Advanced): The essential toolkit for every communicator, manager or leader who communicates on behalf of your organization
  • REPUTATION MANAGEMENT: Learn the process to influence how stakeholders think and feel about your organisation
  • LEADERSHIP: Communication and behavioral skills that leaders need to engage and inspire, including bespoke coaching
  • DIGITAL AND MEDIA TRANSFORMATION: Understanding the rapidly changing digital and media environment and engaging with journalists and new influencers

Training is only as good as the trainer

  1. Our trainers have more than 20 years’ experience and understand organizational behavior, cultural differences and the importance of language in communications.
  2. Our team works closely with yours to understand your business, its unique challenges and the skills needed to better the competition.
  3. We carefully craft scenarios that are unique to your sector and roles, and coach participants through best practices that will improve results.
  4. We use a “blended learning” approach that deeply roots learning.
  5. Intensive on-camera practice is an essential component of many of our training programs
