Select Committee Training

Facing a House of Commons Select Committee can be daunting for even the most experienced Chief Executive. Keeping your cool under the glare of a Select Committee’s hostile, even aggressive, line of questioning isn’t easy. Personal as well as corporate reputations are at stake and the potential for intense media scrutiny is high.

Course Details

This one to one coaching will prepare you practically for this challenging process.

There’s far too much at stake to risk trying to “wing it” at a Select Committee or go in only partially prepared. We research the make-up of the Select Committee, provide a full analysis, brief your spokespeople and offer full “Inquisition style” training. This will be recorded on TV cameras and played back with full video analysis and feedback till you feel comfortable with the proceedings and with your answers to the toughest of questions.

The aim is to help provide you with the skills knowledge and confidence to handle all types of questions with authority, clarity and credibility.
