About the Presentation

The Art of Project Communication

In keeping with our communication theme, this presentation will address getting to the point quickly when presenting to sponsors (concise presentations with the details in the appendix), informing management of the purpose of your presentation (informational, actions/decisions required, etc.), courageous conversation, and venues to improve communication skill (Toastmasters, etc.).
