Course Content Descriptions
PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING
How much does poor communication cost your company? At Correlations, we know companies lose millions annually due to a lack of communication skills. How we communicate has a direct correlation to success and profitability.
ARE COMMUNICATION SKILLS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY?
Poor communication causes sales to slump, morale to sink, and employees to quit. We can improve your momentum and accelerate your performance with impactful communication skills. From your Executive Assistants, HR Leaders, Managers, and Event Planners.
Our clients have found that their new hires feel more empowered to align their presence with the objectives of the companies. Seasoned employees feel inspired to ignite momentum in areas that have grown stale due to a renewed sense of purpose.
The initial question should always be what is the cost? For training, materials, travel, lodging, and coming out of the field or out of the office for one-three days. Our training will make your team more effective with internal and external customers by 10% -30%, that’s a significant return on investment of your bottom line. (i.e. if you company projects $20 million in sales and we increase it at the very least by 10%, it equates to $200,000).
