Communication has two main elements; the rational – data/facts and the emotional.
We have all been to presentations, talks, lectures where we lose the will to live as we are dished up a fog of facts. You may have been the one on the podium cringing as your audience check their phones or worse watches.
How do you take your audience by the hand and lead them to an outcome, thought or action? How can you break down the complex into the captivating and really engage with those you need to one on one or to bigger audiences.
