Learning is a superpower
Strategic communications begin with the basics of good communication skills.
I’ve worked in many different roles and projects, particularly at the intersection of community, government, health, medicine, research, education, and media in Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand, and the Asia-Pacific region.
I’m also a mother who has raised a family. So I know firsthand the value of good communication skills in families and in our personal lives. Good communication skills are life skills. They are skills you can learn.
PREPARATION PRECEDES POWER
Good communication skills are not skills people are born with. They are skills that people learn. I’ve had many learning experiences including a communications degree two decades ago.
And no, you don’t need to do a degree to improve your communication skills. You just need a willing attitude, a desire to improve, and the courage to identify what’s not working for you. Then someone like me creates a safe, interactive workshop training program to give you opportunities to transform at an accelerated pace.
