Instructor Biography

Phill Cronin, Communication Skills Expert - Speaker & Trainer

Hi there, name is Phill Cronin and I am a communication skills expert and founder of Cronin Communication, an organisation focused on the research and development of how we communicate and connect with others. I have been training in this area for nearly seven years. - If you want to know more about me click on the LinkedIn icon to the left under my photo.

Due to my skills in reading body language and my ability to profile people’s communication styles, I am regularly invited to sit on interview panels to assess the candidates. It has been from this experience as well as working with one of the world’s leading recruitment companies that has helped us to develop this powerful and proven program that will give you the edge in any interview scenario.

The core of our training is based around two key areas; Neuroscience, which parts of the brain do what and why, and Psychology - why we behave the way we do? Many of the concepts in this course relating to neuroscience and psychology are based on the well documented research of recognised PhD scholars such as Daniel Goleman’s work on emotional and social intelligence, Daniel Kahneman on decision making and Alan Pease and Paul Ekman (Lie to me) on body language and micro expressions. It is through my research of these subjects along my own research and experiences that has led me to the development of the Connection Code, which is a communication styles profiling tool that looks at how you are able to create another person’s confidence in you and the impact that this has on their decision making.

In essence how you communicate during an interview will affect your success rate….. and its not just about the words and what you say, more how you say it.
