Effective communication boils down to one simple idea: how to express knowledge with confidence.

Not everyone sees themselves as a natural performer but it’s amazing what can be achieved when you have a structure to follow. This 45 minute seminar will provide you with the skills you need for effective communication including the creation and delivery of your message – what you say and how you say it.

For example, did you know that lowering your voice can reduce your nervousness? It has the added benefit of making you sound more authoritative and it also makes you speak slower too.

Do not miss this opportunity to learn about the six tools our speaker has developed which will help you do yourself and your business proud whether you are presenting at a meeting, as a panelist at conference or even in a media interview.
