Last month I ran a series of successful one-day workshops for the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Bunbury. I treat presenting at workshops like a performance; it's exhausting but exhilarating. I know the audience appreciated the performance, as I received a round of applause from attendees at the conclusion of the last two workshops! I'm pleased as punch and looking forward to running more workshops in the future.
Communication skills are vital for anyone in business. The ability to stand up, speak up and persuade is crucial to getting yourself heard and your message understood. We are all 'salespeople' when we present to our clients, selling our company and services and most importantly - ourselves.
I've known Sharon Ferrier, Director, Persuasive Presentations, for many years and owe much of my success to her wisdom and guidance. When I was President of the Women in Technology association in South Australia Sharon generously donated her time to present to our mentoring program participants. Sharon's workshops are always entertaining and educational, opening your eyes to simple but effective methods for persuasive communication.
