Rhetoric Seminar: Make a name for yourself – how to speak convincingly in front of people


Your situation

Besides your special and practical knowledge as a specialist or as a manager, your main tool is actually that of communication. You spend a lot of time presenting your ideas and concepts to your employees, to your supervisor or to potential customers. Unfortunately however, you do not have a lot of time at your disposal for your important persuasive efforts.
