Participants will learn how people listen to and remember information, how to plan and fine-tune effective briefings, and how written and oral briefings differ. They will leave this interactive workshop with techniques, strategies, and tips for framing issues, focusing on what listeners remember, and presenting in a clear, concise matter.
