 “After undertaking training with Gerry Kierans, there was a palpable improvement in audience feedback – now I even receive enthusiastic claps! I highly recommend his training to anyone who makes public presentations or moderates internal meetings.” – Assistant General Counsel & Senior Adviser, European Central Bank

COURSE OVERVIEW:

In today’s competitive marketplace, communicating clearly and confidently is the most important corporate and personal skill. As a participant you will learn advanced strategies to give your company – and your career – a competitive advantage.

Communication professionals constantly face the challenge to design strategies which must communicate the organisation’s goals to meet the expectations of both external clients and internal staff. It is essential for all managers to gain these skills to accomplish personal goals and corporate objectives.

Workshops rarely offer the opportunity to improve crucial “soft skills” to transform your success overnight. This seminar will provide you with the opportunity to learn how to communicate more effectively, efficiently, confidently and profitably.

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND:

In late 2017, LinkedIn surveyed over 2,000 Executives asking what skills are most needed for the year 2018 and Communication Skills were ranked #2. (p.s. One of our other MGT OPEN training specialties – namely Leadership – was ranked #1).

Following are some of the skills and strategies you will learn:

  • CONNECT authentically – with greater self-confidence with colleagues and/or clients
  • ASSESS your personal strengths as a Meeting Moderator or Public Speaker
  • BENCHMARK your skills and be inspired by Corporate Legends of Communication
  • IDENTIFY and FIX your company’s most urgent Meeting, Presentation and Corporate Communication weaknesses
