Evening Session: Secrets for Highly Effective Communications

Tuesday, November 7, 2017
6:00 – 7:30 pm
Chair: Atsufumi Hirohata, University of York

No skill contributes more consistently, and more meaningfully, to professional achievement than the ability to shape thinking and secure support through communication. The simple truth is, those who communicate clearly, crisply and convincingly outperform and out progress those who don’t. In this fast-paced, no-nonsense session, the experts from Ninja Communications, Dan Agan and Joe Schreiber, reveal the secrets professionals use to amp up and ramp up communications success.
