Speaking on the Spot®


Effective communication is essential at every level in today’s business environment. The amount of information that employees must respond to each day is practically overwhelming and has subsequently become a major obstacle to success and productivity. To be heard above the din, we must communicate in a variety of situations with clarity and power. The individuals who possess these skills will have a significant competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Speaking on the Spot® is a practical, intensive workshop that is based on Aristotle’s Rhetoric – clarity, passion, and credibility. This course is comprehensive and covers everything from structuring ideas, to making a point and proving it, to responding to difficult situations persuasively. This topic is often the most important component within various leadership development programs. If you ever wanted a communications course that would help you get results, this course is it!
