I'm hosting a lunch and learn in Washington, DC, on Friday, December 7, from 11:30am to 1:30pm on Making the case for a training program for your experts. That might mean making the case to the experts to be trained, making the case to your communications colleagues, or making the case to the powers-that-be. We'll cover it all. Part briefing, part brainstorm, this session will walk you through:
- Leaders who are calling for experts to gain better public communications skills, with quotes you can use to bolster your program;
- Pluses and minuses of one-off training sessions versus a series or standard training program;
- What other communications pros are facing in their attempts to start training programs; and
- Creating a pilot program and collecting data to make your case.
If you or one of your experts is an introverted communicator, check out my upcoming daylong workshop on Public speaking and presenting for introverts, coming up on November 27. Different rates, dates and times apply.
