Are you a senior manager who wants to connect with your team and deliver consistent results? Are you an entrepreneur, running a small business who wants to empower your team so you can focus on growth? Or maybe you are an individual looking for something that will kickstart your passion and bring clarity to your purpose?
If so, you will know that:
- Delegating is hard unless you have trust
- Finding time to lead when there is so much to do is impossible
- Making a decision about your future when you are unclear about what you want can be dangerous.
How we live and work has evolved and so has the role you play. You are the coach, the communicator, the glue for everybody else, the motivator and inspirer and the person responsible for reaching year on year success. The expectations that society has for you to live bigger, better lives cannot be authentically lived up to. It’s tough, it requires a lot of hard work , it takes commitment, you need the right focus and you don’t often know what you have ‘signed up’ for until it’s too late.
“Taking part in the Walk the Talk Masterclass was a truly energising experience. It helped me really look at my leadership, communication and relationship skills and in such a new and innovative way. I cannot recommend this course enough!”
Amanda, Financial Services Singapore
Walk the Talk is a 2 day workshop designed to equip leaders, entrepreneurs and individuals with the internal resources to deal with the constant change and pressure of today’s leadership environment.

New Voice has partnered with Andrew Froggatt and Sam Glazebrook from Lead The Way, a NZ-based equestrian team to provide this unique learning experience in Singapore and beyond.
Held at the exclusive Singapore Polo Club, you will be partnered with your own horse and will spend up to 3 hours each day working one-on-one through different exercises, closely monitored by Andrew, Sam and Sarah. It will take you on a very personal journey where you will explore how you connect with your authentic self, how you empower and inspire, how you communicate and how you face adversity.
We were recently featured in the HRM Asia magazine as a perfect choice for a corporate event, Read the full article here.
Also, Ordinary People an online magazine showcasing interesting and unique people and events in Singapore, covered a demonstration we did in May. Read their article here on why working with horses can be so powerful.

Government Ministry – Brunei
The New Voice team was engaged by one of the Government Ministries in Brunei to develop a competency framework for their HQ of over 2,000 people. It needed to align with existing Government-wide frameworks and at the same time reflect the unique-ness of this Ministry and support the 5 years Strategic Plan. The team spent a month speaking to individual Leaders in the Ministry, running Focus Groups and workshops with all levels of staff to understand the key behaviours and performance indicators for high potential staff. This was then consolidated into a framework which was further validated through workshops for key stakeholders and a Ministry-wide survey to ensure the language and reference points used were appropriate for the environment. The project is ongoing but after the first six months, the Ministry had a framework that was aligned to their environment and plan, they had key stakeholders engaged through the communication activities New Voice arranged and facilitated and had a Booklet and Roll out guide for the project team to use in the subsequent activities.
Local Hospitality Organisation
New Voice supported a large local Singaporean business that was quite limited in its HR practices. The request was to develop leadership tools and workshops to support their IT function which consisted of approximately 100 IT professionals. Interventions were developed based on their annual Employee Survey results being analysed and establishing the root cause for communication challenges and employee engagement.
The programme ran close to two years and consisted of Collaboration workshops, New Manager Assimilations, One-to-One Coaching Programmes and 360° Feedback Assessments. Working closely with the CIO, our consultants were able to build a high level of trust and became a confidant for the participants resulting in valuable feedback and coaching for all parties.
The success of the Programme spoke for itself with Leaders requesting to participate in the future sessions instead of being nominated. Please see below for some key insights:
“I learned about some habits I initially thought I had fixed but have been referenced through the 360’s. Helps me get a non-biased 3rd party perception others have on me.”
“What hit me the most is the lack of time I’ve spent with my team, which is something I’m rectifying today, and I can see positive changes already in the team morale this early in the year.”
“The feedback received from the team gave a positive outlook and at the same time helped me understand what skills I need to improve on. Assertiveness is something that I had to improve on which I have started working on and have some progress made on the way I approach things.”
“Since our organisation doesn’t have a formal 360 feedback or other feedback process, this programme is very useful and must continue. This gives TMs an opportunity to provide feedback to their managers and stakeholders. With so many management changes, the results from this also helps as a supporting document during annual performance reviews.”
Mobile Technology Organisation
New Voice supported this innovative Mobile Technology organisation to create and roll-out a leadership programme focusing on key management skills for their team leaders. The programme was a modular format with pre-work, face to face sessions and homework set to ensure the learning was ongoing during the 16 weeks learning cycle. Some of the areas of focus included coaching and feedback where participants ‘role played’ and provided feedback to their peers. One participant quoted: ‘it is very ‘meaty’ and gives you a lot of tools and skills; it covers most aspects of the challenges we are facing as Leaders.’
The General Manager was the champion and sponsor of the programme and gave the following feedback:
“I enjoyed the outputs from each module and in particular enjoyed watching the team grow as they gained more knowledge through the process. The module order coincided with issues we were having across the office and we have seen many resolutions put in place resulting from the knowledge gained in the leadership training.”
The Singapore pilot Programme is now being taken to their other offices globally.
