> The Art of Strategic Persuasion: Essential Skills for Leaders
> Effective communication and presentation skills are a signature
> feature of highly successful people and these skills generally have to
> be cultivated and learned. No matter where you are presently in your
> career, you can significantly enhance your professional prospects by
> learning how to become a more confident and compelling speaker.
> In partnership with SLA, FLICC and ARL, OCLC Eastern is pleased to
> offer a one day workshop featuring two dynamic speakers: Dr. Susan
> Miller and Mr. Tom Calcagni. This outstanding seminar is entitled, The
> Art of Strategic Persuasion: Essential Skills for Leaders, and it is a
> must-attend event for anyone who is serious about developing their
> communication and leadership skills.
> Dr. Susan Miller will teach you how to be heard the first time. You
> will learn how to capture your listener immediately with a
> professional presence, pleasant but authoritative vocal tone, and
> clear message. She will offer strategies to diminish your anxiety and
> assert yourself during challenging situations.
> Tom Calcagni will present his "What-Why-How" technique for high-stakes
> presentations and interviews. Through his system for delivering
> personal and professional messages, participants will develop the
> ability and confidence to craft results-driven answers to any type of
> question, and to ensure their ideas are effectively expressed and
> heard.
