Communication and Consulting

Communication and consulting skills are key to success in the learning and development industry!  No matter the role you play within the industry, you need to be able to communicate effectively with your colleagues, audience, and clients. 

This presentation will give an overview of the consulting process, with a focus on the importance of contracting and authenticity. Together, we will discuss our biggest struggles when communicating with our clients (external and internal) and create an action plan to improve our client relations skills.

Please join the Career & Professional Development Special Interest Group on Tuesday April 4th at the Wissahickon Valley Public Library in Blue Bell for a presentation on development and enhancing these skills by Jamie Gairo.
