SYNOPSIS

The ability to present ourselves well, in both formal and informal settings, is a must-have skill. We are judged by how well we do this every single day. Effective in-person communication comprises a combination of several key, learnable skills and techniques. Whether it’s a sales pitch, a company presentation, a networking session, how we walk into a room or our demeanor when we have a conversation at an informal social function – we make an impression each time we are with others. What you say, how you say it, how you appear, how you use your voice, eyes & hands, the way you stand, facial gestures. It all matters immensely. Learn to turn these daily interactions to your advantage.

In this 1-day, fun and practical workshop, you’ll learn proven, valuable skills needed to make a positive impression every time. These skills & techniques fall under two categories: Verbal Communication & Non-Verbal Communication (Body Language).
