- Are your workplace communications more C- than A+?

- Are your emails failing to make a good impression?
- Do your reports lack clarity?

Effective communication is crucial in the workplace. Good communication is not only about disseminating information; it can inspire, persuade and prompt action. Poor communication on the other hand can lead to confusion and a lack of productivity, as well as making you look unprofessional.

Join Freya Giles as she shares top tips for effective workplace communication in a special lunch time seminar. This hands-on, interactive session is for professionals looking to improve their work-based communication skills, and will cover the key elements of effective business writing, including:

- Being clear, concise and persuasive
- Writing effective e-mails
- The final polish
- Getting results
