Short and inspiring trainings combining theory and learning-by-doing, for immediate results.


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. Furthermore, good communication skills will help you to inspire your audience, leave a mark on your network, lend assignments and collaborate efficiently.

With this training, you will learn to convey a message in person, but also via digital and printed mediums (business card, press, website…). 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.
