Effective Communication: The Make or Break for Projects

Most, if not all, of the problems we encounter while managing our projects can be traced to a communications breakdown of some sort, perhaps even an overall lack of effective communication. When you communicate effectively, you are better able to interface with others and develop stronger relationships.

This lively and engaging presentation will help to emphasize the importance of good communication within the project management arena and provide you with the whys, whats, whens and hows of effective project communication.
