Techniques and Strategies to Perfect a Highly-Valued Competency

Limited space is still available for the December 11 session. Please call Leila at 613-234-2020 ext. 18 to check availability and to register.

The ability to succinctly brief others is a highly valued competency in today’s fast-paced workplace. This expertise requires the speaker to clearly understand the issue, structure the briefing in a way that is easy to comprehend, and deliver the message effectively.

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.

This is a one-day workshop in Ottawa.

Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
