About the workshop
Ideas and passion are only as good as your ability to execute on them, and the first step to that is the ability to articulate those ideas and passion, convey your message, and ultimately persuade others. Communication, whether in a social setting, in the boardroom, or on a stage, is not an inherent skill, but rather one that gets better with time and practice, and like business planning or negotiation, requires forethought and employs strategy & tactics. This workshop will share practical approaches and tips on how to improve your communication abilities and be your most effective self in articulation and persuasion.
