Communicating and Making an Impact

Led by Suzanne Wheatley

How do you make a good first impression? Effective communication is about much more than just your words. Suzanne will focus on the mechanics of speaking; covering verbal and non-verbal cues, how you can use your voice to great effect, how to project confidence and ways to engage your audience. These tools can be applied to the delivery of presentations, in team meetings, at appraisal time, in interviews and the all-important networking. What are the key learning outcomes you will take away? Increased confidence in public speaking, techniques to calm nerves and tools for networking.
