Networking, Self-Marketing and Communication Skills

A workshop offered by the Human Resources Development

How can I make an impact in professional contexts such as small-talk situations at conferences?

This workshop offers the opportunity to enhance your overall self-confident and effective communication (verbal and non-verbal).
