This session will outline and help to implement the elements of effective communication, especially in a presentation environment. It will answer the questions of how to be better interpreted when we speak, how to use language in a way that elicits effective interaction, and how we can get clearer messages from others. The spoken and the unspoken elements of communication will be highlighted and how to use these elements to your advantage.
If you are fearful or tenuous about speaking either in a small group environment or to a large group, this will give you tools for greater stage presence, impact and ultimately confidence to get your message out in a way that you look to convey. If you are uncertain about how you are perceived, this will give you a specific tool to support you in connecting with audiences very quickly in order to create openness to your message. Ultimately, it will help you be more of the self you want to highlight and engage with whether you are speaking in a small contained environment or to a large audience.
The objective of the session is for participants to walk away with a greater sense of knowledge of what it takes to be a better communicator and to translate that knowledge into a presentation environment.
