Influential Communication Essentials

Woman presenting in front of a whiteboard

The ability to communicate with clarity and conviction is a critical and necessary skill for business professionals in Calgary. By making our ideas accessible to our audience we can ensure we position ourselves as leaders within our organization and foster the right internal reputation. To be truly effective, business professionals must be able to influence others every time they speak—from formal and informal presentations to conference call, one-on-one conversations, impromptu discussions and Q&A sessions. Influential Communication Essentials meets this goal by enabling participants to speak as a polished, influential leader in every interaction.

The program is highly interactive which will show participants how to communicate with clarity and intent. The workshops will give participants practical tools and guidance they can implement immediately. They will learn to organize their thoughts in a logical manner, craft key messages that will tell their audience what’s most important and use their physical and vocal presence to keep the audience engaged.
