BRILLIANT COMMUNICATION: IMPRESS AND INFLUENCE EVERYONE

Presented by Andy Bounds

As we all know, business isn’t always easy at the best of times. 

And now is not the best of times!  Everyone we want to see is busy.  They don’t always get back to us quickly… or, at all.  Everything just seems to take longer – and be more difficult – than it should be. And that’s where the good news comes in…

We have agreed that we will work with the UK’s leading communication expert Andy Bounds again, to give us new skills and confidence to communicate with more impact.  His two previous webinars with us were two of our most popular ever. He’s really good at giving simple techniques we can use immediately.

Please note – this event has been postponed to a later date, more details to follow.

Testimonials

I think Galway Executive Skillnet is doing a commendable effort opening your courses.

And you are the best of all the Skillnets out there!

Wow! Just Wow! I signed up for the Presenting with Impact course via Galway Executive Skillnet that took place this morning. And I've just opened my inbox to find a 41-page workbook to download. And we have homework! I just can't get over the calibre of the curriculum offered... 

You're running such a valuable resource!

I would (and have) highly recommend the Managing Conflict course to my colleagues.
