How Best to Convey Your Message in Meetings, Conference Calls or any Conversation
2013 Professional Development Workshop Series

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 8:30 am-10:15 am

Your presentation skills in formal and informal settings are crucial to how others perceive you, and whether you are seen as someone who will become
a partner or leader in your profession. Participants in this session will learn impromptu speaking techniques including:

  • Pre-meeting preparation strategies;
  • Organizing thoughts quickly in the moment;
  • Tactics for answering “I don’t know” questions; and
  • Interrupting with respect and handling interruptions.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to immediately implement the skills learned to improve how you speak and build credibility in your message.
