Former President Gerald Ford once said, “If I went back to college again, I'd concentrate on two areas: learning to write and to speak before an audience. Nothing in life is more important than the ability to communicate effectively.” Whether it is speaking to one or 1000, as leaders we constantly find ourselves needing to influence the actions and attitudes of others in order to accomplish our own goals and objectives and help our organizations meet its priorities.
In this workshop, learn the keys to communicating more effectively and convincingly to others, such as:
• The four questions every audience, small or large, want you to answer
• The three components that result in the total impact of your ability to communicate
• How to reduce podium panic and avoid “tornado” presentations
• Quick suggestions for improving your visuals
• Two key actions guaranteed to improve your ability to communicate your message and increase your influence
Join us for this lively session as we take a not-so-familiar look at a familiar subject and leave with suggestions you can put to work immediately to improve your ability to communicate more confidently and convincingly to others.
As part of WEN Utah’s commitment to helping Utah Food Bank fight hunger statewide, we are hosting a Virtual Food & Fund Drive. Utah Food Bank’s work is important to us because we feel that no child should go to bed hungry in Utah.
You can support their efforts by visiting our Virtual Food & Fund Drive here: WEN Utah - Virtual Food Drive. All you have to do is browse the “aisles” to see just how much of an impact your gift will make. Add items to your virtual shopping cart, or simply donate to Utah Food Bank so they can use your gift where it’s most needed. 382,000 Utahns, which equates to 1 in 8 Utahns, are at risk of missing a meal today. Even more alarming is that 1 in 7 Utah kids are unsure where their next meal is coming from. With your support, and Utah Food Bank’s purchasing power, we can truly make a difference in the lives of Utahns facing hunger! If you would like to find out more about the important work that Utah Food Bank is doing, please visit www.utahfoodbank.org. Thank you for your time and consideration!
Thank you to our event sponsor Ecology and Environment, Inc.
