How you communicate in the workplace is crucial to the level of impact and influence you can have with these important stakeholders.

Using improv exercises, real-life examples, and a good dose of humor, we demonstrate immediately useful techniques for shaping how others perceive you, improving the clarity and effectiveness of your communications, and building long-term relationships with colleagues and clients alike.
