Claire Cockerton
CEO & Chairwoman
ENTIQ / Level 39, London

I worked with Spacecraft on developing good operating and communication principles within my leadership team. Chris worked to understand each person’s perspective, and drove us to articulating and aligning our vision for the company. His deep understanding of human psychology helped us unpick different individuals’ motivations and different approaches to the work we do. He is also very aware of social dynamics and the power of organisational culture. He helped us refine our approach to constructing a business strategy, vision and our working practices. Above the tremendous expertise that Chris offers, he is very enjoyable to work with, easily responding to our needs as a team and business. He has a sensitivity and emotional intelligence that has put everyone at ease and ready to be collaborative and productive.

Garry Clamp
Director Customer Experience
Vodafone, London

Chris is right up there as one of the best among all people I have ever met. He was fantastic to work with, multi-skilled and creative with a rare ability to leverage experience & perspective to help people find “what works”. It’s amazing to work with such a person, excellent, passionate and always fun – Highly recommended.

Nick Burden
Global Recruitment Lead
King, London

The results I got (after the presentation coaching) were unbelievable. Not only did senior leadership (and everyone else I presented to subsequently) understand the concept immediately but I achieved complete and utter buy in. So much so that the concept took a life of it’s own. It felt like magic. You have given me a life long skill set and toolkit which has enabled me to influence change without the effort. It’s been career changing.

Wayne Mullen
Senior Director, HR Services
The Workshop – Inventors of play

I first met Chris several years ago and I remember being struck by his nurturing and non-judgmental way of working and his ability to free people up to explore and experiment safely. Chris brings his experience of performance and theatre to the workplace in a creative, intelligent and thoughtful way. His way of working with ‘what is’ is challenging, inspirational and ultimately transformational. He enables leaders to create resonance and to find voice and presence.

Todd Green
Head of Studio, Candy Crush Saga
King, Stockholm

You ran a fun and energetic team development workshop for a group of 70. You understood the needs and goals clearly, applied your craft to them thoughtfully, and led a popular and productive session. Thanks!

Marcus Wallén
Brandman
Räddningstjänsten Norrtälje

Christopher has a way of engaging people that is rare and always makes sure to provide training based on individuals needs rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. If you ever get an opportunity to work with Christopher, do it! You will not regret it.

Molood Noori Alavijeh
Agile Coach & Public Speaker
Softhouse Consulting, Malmö

Your course has made me a better person. It has helped me have more empathy. It has equipped me with the skills to always ask myself “what feeling do I want to create in the other person” as well as “what’s the main point I’d like the other person to take away?” and not to mention “What do I want to be remembered for after this talk/presentation/conversation?” I’ve used some of my learnings to coach other people in areas completely different than powerful presentations. You are a great teacher because you made a lasting impact on someone’s life.

 

WE THINK

 

WE THINK

GREAT COMMUNICATION IS A SKILL YOU CAN ACTIVELY DEVELOP.
Not a ‘talent’ you either do or don’t have.

THERE’S NO ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL.
We offer a personalised approach to fit you and your particular situation.

LEARNING FROM EXPERIENCE IS BETTER THAN ‘BEING TAUGHT’.

We’ll give you a safe space to experiment with new and different ways of interacting and communicating to boost your impact.

THERE’S NO CONTRADICTION BETWEEN SERIOUS FUN AND SERIOUS LEARNING.

With us, you’ll have both.

WORKING WITH US, YOU WON’T LOOK LIKE YOU’VE BEEN COACHED.
You’ll be yourself, but with more awareness, more options and more confidence.

YOU. WITH MORE IMPACT.

Good communication is crucial to success in any area of life.

An impactful public speaker influences people by taking a stance and speaking with conviction; an effective manager knows how to handle tricky conversations while keeping relationships positive; an engaging TV presenter captivates their audience with their own personal style.

And yet, curiously, most people don’t formally learn how to communicate well and engage people.

Training actors at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) in London over many years, it often struck me how useful it would be for anybody to have the opportunity to explore themselves as actors do: to find out about your own habits (cognitive, emotional, physical) and your strengths and limitations as a communicator; and to have a safe space to experiment with new ways of being, to become more expressive, more engaging and… more yourself.

Spacecraft was set up to give you such a space. To be able to explore communication as a craft that is based on a set of skills and principles that you can learn and master. So that you develop a wider range of choices for your interactions with people – rather than being limited by communication habits you probably never chose, but absorbed unconsciously over time.

We believe that people’s potential is so much greater than their habits. In other words, you – and all of us – can become so much more than what we currently are.

Our programmes are like a fluid conversation: interactive, fun and memorable. We will take you and your teams on an experiential journey to stimulate you with ideas as well as emotionally and through action – while always keeping a sharp focus on your goals and why you’ve come to work with us.
