According to a recent Job Outlook survey, if employers could change one thing about their employees, they’d make them better communicators. If you want to stand out, you need to show that you are one of the strong communicators on your team. You need to know how to craft clear, strategic communications and render complex ideas into plain language. Good communication helps management solve problems and make better decisions by keeping people well informed.
This two day course is designed to help you develop skills that will enhance your delivery and reaching out to your audience effectively. Participants will be engaged in a full array of hands on class experience to improve writing skills, social interaction skills, visual aid preparation etc.
Participants also may choose to bring a sample of their writing/ presentation/ commonly faced issues in the work place for one-on-one feedback.

At the end of the course participants will:
• Acquire better core writing fundamentals
• Use plain language to keep messages accessible
• Learn how to send impactful messages and catch your readers’ attention
