Orientation Week – Communication – Hello!

Have you ever thought about communicating before doing so?

Most people don’t.  There is no preparation on what we are going to say, how we are going to say it, are we using the right words?, how might it be received? have we conveyed the right message?

Then of course we need to consider the best method of communicating – text, WhatsApp, email, letter, telephone and so on.

Add to that non-verbal cues, reflection, annunciation, spatial awareness, volume, body language – communicating can be a nightmare!

Ronan Keating said ‘you say it best when you say nothing at all’ – how true that can be!

So Jade who owns Customer Care First,  joined us to deliver an interactive 2 hour workshop on all aspects of communication.
