Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

Friday, April 24, 2020

Does your job require speaking to groups, motivating others toward a common goal, or having difficult conversations with coworkers? If so, this workshop is for you. Our goal is to help you build the communication skills necessary to give excellent presentations, persuade others to support your vision of the future, and turn potentially destructive interactions into productive ones. This day-long, interactive, skill-based workshop is focused on the needs of public-sector officials and open to anyone who wants to communicate more effectively. Experts from the UNC Department of Communication will teach you about the art of public speaking and lead you through exercises designed to help you create and deliver effective messages. Please bring to class a written script, and be prepared to deliver a 5-7 minute speech on a topic you are likely to address in your normal work life. This script/speech will be the basis of intense, individualized attention throughout the day.
