Wednesday July 18th – The Master Communicator’s Secret Weapon

The Master Communicator’s Secret Weapon, Yes And…

According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), every time a company replaces a salaried employee, it costs the business an average of 6 to 9 months’ that salary. This is painful and costly for every stakeholder in your business. Today, savvy businesses are seeking new ways to improve communication and culture in (and out) of the office. That’s where business improv training comes in. 

Don’t miss Futureforth founder, Dave Delaney, presenting his acclaimed, “Improve with Improv” presentation. Delaney will share three key skills from improv that you can use each day to improve your communication skills with colleagues, clients, friends and family. You will learn to listen better, not to fear failure, and to accept opportunities with an empathetic open mind.

“Improvisation – and the improv toolkit – offers great grounding for leaders challenged to thrive in a business climate that demands agility, resilience, quick thinking, and ease with ambiguity. Counter-intuitive as it might seem, business is often an act of improvisation, not planning. So we say “lights up” on the era of the leader as an improviser.” – Harvard Business Review.

Dave Delaney is a marketing communications professional specializing in digital marketing and corporate communication through improv workshops. Dave is a proud dad, happy hubby, authorspeaker, founder of Futureforth  and Networking For Nice People.

 

IABC Nashville audience members will also receive a free copy of Delaney’s ebook, “Improve with Improv”. Expect plenty of laughs and ah-ha moments during the IABC Professional Development Luncheon.
