Communication and Selling Talks
Being a good presenter, communicator and influencer are all important for each and every one of us to think about.
Communication skills are critical to advancing in a large company, and they’re essential if you’re running a fledging company because you need to be able to persuade and wow your customers and investors.
After all, what holds most people back from being promoted is not usually technical skills. What destroys a start-up entrepreneur who is pitching a VC are not usually technical skills either.
They are smart and talented. They can do the job.
What often holds people back for taking on a higher leadership role are soft skills like the ability to speak, communicate and pitch so that we persuades and influence others.
