Even right answers need a persuasive presentation

Whether you are in a business, social, or personal discussion, online or face-to-face, the way you communicate sets the tone for the rest of your interactions. In this hour-long webinar, Edward Schiappa will lead you through interactive exercises that will help you define the traits you choose to emphasize in order to develop more persuasive messages.  

During this interactive webinar, you will:

Analyze & assess your current verbal and non-verbal behaviors and what they convey about you

- Acquire the tools you need to tweak and refine your communication persona 

- Evaluate the impression you give others, both in your messaging and your online photos 

Following the prepared portion of the webinar, you can pose questions directly to Schiappa via a live Q&A session.
