Get Your Message Across:
A Course on Effective Communication & Presentation Skills

September 23, 2016

The Centre for Professional Development at Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto is pleased to offer “Get Your Message Across: A Course on Effective Communication and Presentation Skills”. The course will be taught by Barb Langlois, RN, BSN, MSN, who is an author and leadership & communication expert. This one-day interactive workshop is designed to build confidence and effectiveness in professional communication and presentation skills. Develop your knowledge and skill in the design, delivery and evaluation of presentations that exhibit a credible and clear professional message. Getting your message across requires careful consideration of the audience, the purpose, and the context of your presentation. It is also dependent on your ability to engage others and to facilitate discussion with expertise. Confident application of these skills will assist you in lobbying for and introducing change, presenting a business case, or proposing an idea by presenting in an authentic, concise, persuasive and effective manner.
