As professional communicators, it is easy to advise others on how to respond in certain situations. But when we find ourselves in the midst of challenging conversations with clients, colleagues or a crisis, are we equipped to respond appropriately and set the right example for those who trust our expertise?

Join us Wednesday, March 25 for an in-depth panel discussion with respected communicators from a variety of industries sharing their insight into managing difficult conversations. Learn practical strategies and techniques for maintaining your composure during these challenging workplace discussions.
