 This month plan to meet John LaLonde from Microsoft.  Also enjoy our guest speaker David Mann speaking on, “How to Say What You Mean and Get People to Listen”
You know what you're talking about. You're an expert. You're trustworthy and sincere. So why doesn't your staff or your clients always do what you need them to do? It could be because they don't understand the way you communicate. Actor and communication coach David Mann will outline useful methods of making key points clearly and concisely, telling a memorable story, working the room, translating technical jargon into everyday speech, and listening to your listener. Whether you're using a word-for-word script or a bullet point outline, whether you're the CEO or on the front-line sales staff, the goal is always to get the message across with clarity, compassion, and confidence. This talk will help you see ways you can do that. David Mann is a communication expert who has spent his career mastering the business of speaking, adapting theatre techniques to the demands of business.
