Research indicates that business professionals spend a vast amount of time, in fact over 70% of their working day, in communication with others, which in an average 8-hour day, accounts for more than 5.5 hours. In addition, research suggests that more than half of that time is spent clarifying or ‘fixing’ previous communication.
This is true of communication across all channels including face-to-face, written, telephone and videoconferencing although face-to-face communication, which allows information to be transmitted verbally and non-verbally via use of voice and body language tends to be easier for most people.

Upon completion and for each of the three communication channels of telephone, email and videoconferencing participants will be able to:
This course is interactive in nature and participants will be actively involved, using their own experiences and challenges to reinforce and adapt the new knowledge and skills to their own reality, as well as examples, case studies and simulations provided by the trainer. Use of -assessments and reflective exercises will also allow participants to increase their awareness and provide opportunity for peer reflection and discussion
