“I Hear You Loud and Clear”
CRYSTAL CLEAR INTER-PERSONAL COMMUNICATION SKILLS
In the midst of haste and noise in this day and age, crystal clear inter-personal communication evolves to be one of the most desired skills to acquire. This is especially so when you are competing with so many other media in this information-laden era. How many times mistakes and misunderstanding were made because of poor communication? How often do you wish you could articulate your thoughts loudly and clearly? Experts suggest that more than 70% of our communication is non-verbal. Speaking clearly and displaying the right body language projects your individual persona and branding.
At the end of this 1-day interactive workshop, you will be able to:
- enhance your vocal quality.
- understand and portray the right body language.
- build rapport and communicate clearly to others.
