About this Event

Attend Signature Certification from the comfort of your home!

With most of the world in some form of lockdown, and travel between countries heavily restricted, we are pleased to bring you the highly interactive Virtual Signature Certification. This is not an alternative to watching Netflix: Signature Certification is all about developing your skills in using The Birkman Method (TBM), not watching someone else talk about it. Because the level of concentration required in an online setting is so much greater, we are limiting each session to two hours, once a day.

We have been amazed how well this new learning format works; this more paced approach is giving participants greater opportunity to internalise the learning as we go along.

You can ask questions outside of class time by email or live during the 10 minutes we open the virtual classroom before each session starts. You will work on exercises with your fellow learners in breakout rooms, and by the end, facilitate a significant conversation for another learner around their Birkman Report. We are using Zoom, will secure each session and will only admit verified participants.

Programme runs for two hours every day, 12-16 and 19-23 October, (10 sessions over two weeks).

Timing in your Timezone:

  • Singapore / Malaysia / Hong Kong / China / Taiwan / Philippines 3-5pm
  • India 12.30-2.30pm
  • New Zealand 8-10pm
  • Japan 4-6pm
  • Indonesia / Thailand 2-4pm

List above is not exhaustive - you may join us from anywhere if you can make the time work. (UK / EU Participants must use the alternative booking form at

What will I need?

See below for general information relating to all Signature Certifications. Specifically for this Virtual Session, you will need:

  • A computer with a built in or stand alone webcam and microphone
  • To download the latest version of the Zoom app, if you haven't already
  • Somewhere private to sit, with good lighting and free from interruptions (this session can't be combined with looking after small children) 
  • We hope to get printed materials to you, but having an iPad or other PDF reader available (separate from computer) would be wise
  • Good, reliable broadband access to the Internet. We strongly advise against relying on mobile data unless that is your only option, and super reliable.

Please note that as with every Signature Certification session, you must attend every session in order to be Certified. We will make every effort to be flexible where unforeseeable technical issues obtrude, but you will not be able to take calls or do emails during these session; our fulltime session manager will be monitoring attendance and engagement.

ANY Questions - contact

Signature Certification

Signature Certification equips you to work with individuals, teams and organisations using the Signature suite of reports (individual, comparative and group). Signature provides a powerful foundation for one-on-one coaching conversations, team workshops and organisational interventions. Data is readily aggregated and analysed to provide powerful insight into team and organisational dynamics, strength of perspectives and potential gaps or blind spots.

Signature is the flagship Birkman Method® Report. It provides insight into motivations, behaviours, perceptions and career options. Unique underlying needs and stress scores create powerful self-awareness that enables behavioural change. 

Who is it for?

Professionals involved in People/Organisational Development, L&D, Talent Management, Career Development, Coaching etc.. 

Signature Certification is accredited by ICF (28 hours) and SHRM (28 PDCs).

What is included?

The training package consists of:

  • 8 online modules which cover key knowledge of the Signature scores

  • 10 sessions over 2 weeks of interactive, practice based training to apply what you have learnt in a range of applied contexts

  • Your first two Birkman Questionnaires for immediate practice

  • Post training assessment and personal feedback to build your competence and confidence 

  • On-going follow-up support which consolidate and extend your Birkman knowledge and expertise

 On successful completion of the programme you can expect to:

~ know the Birkman data set, and its power to build self-awareness and team understanding

~ have confidence in applying Birkman data to development and performance issues in the workplace

~ be equipped to have a competent one-on-one Birkman interpretation conversation with an individual

Once your post assessment is fully completed, you can open an individual and/or organisational Birkman account to purchase questionnaires and manage reports.
