Clear, effective communication is critical to building (and maintaining) positive brand perception, as well as achieving long-term financial success. Missing the mark in how you communicate limits your ability to:
Secure capital Attract and retain customers
Create a high-performing workplace Drive long-term growth and revenue
As an entrepreneur, you’ll be encountering many types of “sharks” as your business grows. Potential investors, existing or potential clients, partners and members of the media are just some examples.
This is a hands-on, high energy workshop where you’ll learn how to effectively communicate with any shark. You’ll learn how to create targeted messaging and then deliver it in a clear, confident and professional manner, particularly under pressure. Industry best practices and proven communication techniques used by seasoned executives working in the Fortune 500 will be shared.
Not only will you learn valuable concepts and ideas, you’ll walk away with completed messaging templates and tools which you can immediately incorporate into your business!
