“It’s not what you say, it’s what they hear”
Whether it is a presentation, regular meeting, discussion group, lobbying or lecture, every action, gesture, word, pause and facial expression communicates a message to your audience. If you are providing your message in a language that the intended audience cannot understand, then it does not matter how often you repeat it or the extent of your research, the potential for your message to be lost is high.
Advocacy – getting your message heard is a one-day practical workshop for those who want to develop their verbal and non-verbal communication skills. It is a space to address issues arising in practice so that new learning and skills can be incorporated into your work place.
What will be covered:
Please bring your own laptop if required.
