Extreme Clarity Workshop

1 Day


Cohort-based Course

Do you fear losing your audience's attention? Or, worse: They pay no attention? Communicating with extreme clarity is essential.

Course overview

Get out of the details to craft communication that cuts through with busy people

Stop tweaking words and sentences to craft the perfect report or email.

'Better writing' is not the solution.

It's better thinking.

Learn a repeatable strategy to clarify and convey complex ideas in any setting.

Communicating becomes easy once you have extreme clarity about the message you actually need to convey.

Who is this course for


Frustrated PMs experiencing slow responses to their emails, convoluted chains in messaging channels and miscommunication in meetings.


Ambitious experts who want to connect with decision makers, even when they don't share your technical expertise.


Professionals wanting to waste less time chasing for responses and fixing problems caused by miscommunication.

Learn how to structure your thinking to find and frame insightful messaging

Master a simple sentence that defines the outcome your communication must deliver.

We have a joke that the big idea is often buried at the bottom of page 47. This typically happens because the author hasn't prioritised what they really need to achieve with that communication.

Clarify and convey your main message so it jumps off the page.

Many famous people have said that if you can't say it in a sentence, you don't know it. It's true. You are also unlikely to get the response you need from busy leaders if you don't convey what matters in that single sentence.

Structure your messaging so any audience can find it in 30 seconds.

Visualise your messaging so it literally jumps off the page. Match the hierarchy of your messaging with the hierarchy of the formatting in your communication.

Practice synthesising your main message.

Don't just learn about how to structure your messaging. Do it! We will practice and review the results together.

What people say about Davina's workshops

        The approach you guided us through is excellent. I'm finding the more I lean into it, the more natural it becomes to frame meaningful content … it's like a ‘magic pattern'.


Technology Consultant, Government Department
        I continue to use the framework – I find it's a bullet-proof method for communicating anything! Execs have noticed a difference in how I communicate ideas - that they are clear, succinct and actionable, thanks to you!

Clarity First Program

I love what I do.

I help leaders and their teams prepare high-quality papers and presentations in a fraction of the time.

This involves 'nailing' the message that will quickly engage decision makers in the required outcome.

I leverage 25+ years' experience including

  • learning structured thinking techniques at McKinsey in Hong Kong in the mid 1990s before coaching and training their teams globally as a freelancer for a further 15 years
  • being approved to teach the Pyramid Principle by Barbara Minto in 2009
  • helping CEOs, C-suite leaders and their reports deeply understand their stakeholder needs and communicate accordingly
  • seeing leaders cut the number of times they review major papers by ~30% and teams cut the amount of time they take to prepare major papers by ~20%*
  • watching senior meetings focus on substantive discussions and better decisions rather than trying to clarify the issue

My approach helps anyone who needs to engage busy leaders in complex ideas.

Recent clients include 7Eleven, KPMG, Mercer, Meta, Woolworths.
