ANZSOG: Communicate for Impact and Influence, Two One-day Workshops

October 11, 2017

Communicate for Impact & Influence will help you develop the confidence and skills to tell a compelling evidence-based story with the power to influence change in all aspects of working life. This engaging, one-day workshop will be presented by Dr Zina O’Leary

“We communicate all the time yet we’re often not heard,”  Dr O’Leary says.
“Effective communication happens when we deliver our message in a way that makes people take notice, and even act on what we say. Our unique strengths must shine through.”

Key Benefits

The ability to deliver cut-through messages that convince people to act is a highly prized attribute. Communicate for Impact and Influence will help you improve your ability to make things happen.

Dr O’Leary will teach you the importance of understanding audience and their needs, knowing your own objective at the start, and finding the right balance of data and story. You will discover how to create a credible evidence-driven story that takes the audience on a journey, using language that motivates action.

You will also develop the ability to draw on your own unique attributes to deliver persuasive arguments with a convincing presence.
