Communication with a Human Connection for Technical Leaders Register


MORE THAN JUST THE FACTS:  Communication with a Human Connection for Technical Leaders

You are technically talented but know this is not enough to lead and succeed in your field. You need the ability to engage, persuade and influence others. Your success relies on your ability to communicate effectively with your boss, investors, customers and your team.

How do we connect with people who don’t have our technical background? How can we discuss complex topics in ways familiar and welcoming to your audience?

This interactive presentation is ideal for anyone from a technical specialisation who needs to communicate with people from outside their field. You will learn:

  • Why communication skills are essential for technical people
  • The universal principles of clear communication
  • A practical framework for preparing and delivering presentations on technical topics to any audience
  • Ways to put this framework into practice to develop your speaking skills and increase your perceived competence and effectiveness in your role
