Edinburgh: Communication Skills
Often, the result of poor communication is that your audience (be it 1 or 100) will leave with the message that they heard, rather than the message you delivered. James will demonstrate how to connect with an audience in a way that is guaranteed to get the core of your message retained by a high percentage of your audience.
You will learn how to pick your words with care, in order to make your message unambiguous so that anyone you communicate with is sure to leave with the message that you delivered.
James will then show you how to deliver those words in a manner that keeps the audience engaged and entertained throughout your presentation and encourages them to engage with you after the presentation has been completed.
