Next Meeting Monday Sept. 19:

Communicating Effectively to Influence and Inspire

Effective communication makes all the difference when you’re motivating your team, pitching investors, casting a vision, or want to gain influence with prospects.  According to the Harvard Business Review, communication is a make-or-break skill for today’s leader.  A recent study indicates that 80% of a business leader’s day is spent communicating.  

This meeting will be a collaborative experience. Speakers and audience members join together to learn, practice, and help one another improve.  Come see three speakers give short presentations, with a professional coach offering expert feedback.  Audience members use round-table discussions to evaluate and share feedback with each Presenter, while getting to know one another.  The result is shared learning and that can help all participants improve how they prepare for an important talk.
