Details and Outcomes

Introduction to Business Communication: This is an introductory session for you to get familiar with the importance of communication and soft skills and their role in your professional success. It is also to introduce you to the idea of being an effective communicator, the various modes and types of communication, e.g. verbal and non-verbal - as well as allow you to share your blind spots/ struggles that might be preventing you from getting your message across with confidence and to the right audience.

The aim of the Communication Series is to help you build compelling professional profiles - across platforms and opportunities; to ensure confident and persuasive outreach and public representations by you; and to create a lasting synergy between these two goals. All this in an interactive and participative format, through which we share examples, checklists and standout ideas to help you with your resumes, cover letters, basic business writing, public speaking and placement preparation, among other things.
