Please join us for our April Lunch Meeting!

Gone are the days of containing information within the business. Anything that is known by anyone can now become everyone's morning news byte. More and more our communication is via abbreviated methods - quick emails or text. We need to hone our sending skills to share the intended message and our receiving skills to accurately decipher the intended message. This session provides strategies for successful business communications in the transparent age.

Specific learning objectives for attendees:

  • Understanding business communication styles
  • Know why inflexion matters in the written word
  • Determining the receiver's perspective to the subject matter
  • Recognizing five barriers to effective business communication
