17/05/16  Communicate with confidence and across cultures

The ability to communicate effectively is a vital skill for anyone in business: you need to be able to think on your feet, and also to relate to others, even across cultural boundaries. Find out how to do both these things through courses coming up soon from Cambridge Network's Learning Collaboration.

Anyone in business who needs to build their confidence and capability in helping and influencing others with their questions, insights and ideas will benefit from the course next month: 'Brilliant Thinking Made Easy'.

Do you ever:

  • find yourself in meetings wishing you’d been able to say something more impressive on the spur of the moment?
  • discover that people haven’t read or really understood what you were trying to say in your reports or proposals?
  • take a long time to prepare slides for your presentations that are then a bit too detailed and not as interesting as you’d like them to be?
  • wish you could ‘wow’ colleagues and customers a bit more in your dealings with them?

Drawing on the structured thinking ideas used by great speakers, leading strategy firms, high profile research organisations and famous business writers, this course - which takes place on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June 2016 (a host venue is sought) -  will help you:

  • make more powerful contributions in meetings by thinking faster on your feet
  • write reports and proposals more quickly and in a sharper, persuasive style
  • create memorable presentations that are compelling for your audience
  • build relationships and negotiate more successfully.

Working with other cultures is rewarding and interesting. However, we sometimes have misunderstandings because we expect others to behave just as we do. To understand other cultures, we need to know what is beneath the surface - the norms, history, values and assumptions, all of which influence how different cultures behave and communicate.

Working Across Cultures on Friday 1st July (a host venue is also sought) is a one day workshop which will provide you with a useful template for understanding both your own and different cultures; to see where the gaps lie, and where there is potential for misunderstanding. You will learn how to bridge those gaps by adapting your style and communicating effectively. The cultures covered in the session can be tailored to participants’ requests.
