Communication Skills


Tell a compelling story, catch the world’s attention.

The ability to communicate effectively with clients, partners or team members is essential no matter what project you work on.

During the class, you will present your work to an audience, receive advice on nonverbal communication (body language, focus, eye contact), practice active listening, build up your confidence, and work on both clarity and coherence.
