PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
Strategic Communication Skills in a Day

Few in Calgary predicted the oil price decline in late 2014. In fact, only three of over a thousand people at the CFA Society Calgary Forecast Dinner in January 2014 recorded an oil price below $80 on their forecast submission.

For many, there’s an interest in methodologies and tools to communicate effectively with immediate responses to a changing business environment. This workshop is more than communication or presentation skills. The word “strategic” is in the title as the focus is on helping speakers that already have strong content and speaking skills to excel in front of a tough or nervous audience. It’s an integration of media training, conflict management and investor relations disclosure.

Registration will be capped at 15 individuals to ensure a tailored experience for each registrant.

Morning workshop 9:30 am to 12:00 pm

Communication leadership in a crisis 

Participants will review various speaker styles to understand how general perceptions are formed. From this, participants will review the elements of a crisis and how to form a crisis communication plan. Attention will be given to the identification of gaps, how and when to retain outside counsel and managing public perceptions.

Lunch 12:00 pm to 12:45pm

Afternoon workshop 12:45 pm to 3:45pm

Strategic communication skills before, during and after your meeting

Participants will learn and practice techniques to manage your audience by reviewing different types of conflict situations to enable one to change communication tactics for a variety of issues. Participants will upgrade and improve their communications skills and be able to speak with authority and confidence if the audience gets antagonistic.

As this workshop is designed to elevate the participants’ speaking skills to the next level, the focus of the workshop will be on taking charge of your agenda, understanding audience perspectives, focusing on conflict situations and recognizing tough questions. Participants will practice communication tools so that one can respond with confidence and authority no matter what the subject matter. Concepts will be applied from various disciplines.
