This course focuses on improving the most important part of any work conversation: The First Minute.
This course is not a general ‘how to communicate’ course, there are plenty of those already available online.
99% of all business communication does not involve public speaking or giving presentations, it happens in conversations, meetings and emails. This course teaches you how to start those work conversation clearly, how to summarize any topic in three lines, and how to make sure you’re your audience receives your message and knows what you want them to do next.
