Webinar | Learn the Art of Effective Virtual Communication

We are offering new virtual event programming to support the professional development of our membership community as we adapt our skills toward a 'new normal'. Neil Grammer, communications coach and Partner at Dialogue Strategies will teach participants how to effectively communicate in a virtual world.

Virtual Communication Best Practices:

  • Structuring the meeting to stay on track;
  • Setting up your virtual environment to eliminate distractions;
  • Establishing “ground rules” to ensure controlled interaction in the meeting;
  • Creating a logical flow that ensures the presentation flows seamlessly; 
  • Developing a message that is clear, easy to follow and, ultimately, more persuasive.

Communication Delivery Techniques:

  • Eye Contact, non-words, body language, voice modulation

Handling Questions: 

  • Dealing with questions/ objections in a credible, non-defensive manner.

This event is open to all professional levels. Please login to access Member Pricing.
