THINK FASTER, TALK SMARTER: HOW TO SPEAK SUCCESSFULLY WHEN PUT ON THE SPOT

 
Business leaders can struggle to convey their messages in a clear, concise, and compelling manner. When your strategic communication resonates with your audience in a well-organized and clear way, it is far more likely to be impactful and acted upon. In this session, you will learn how to design and integrate your messages in service of your strategic speaking goal(s) -- regardless of delivery modality (e.g., emails, memos, slides, or answers to questions). You will get hands-on practice with and feedback on writing messages that help your audience to better understand and remember your message long after you're done. Additionally, you will get feedback on your nonverbal, leadership presence.
