Communications and Public Speaking CoP: Proper Communication...It's A Project

Abstract: We know how to speak to our peers but do we know how to communicate with others? We often use jargon, acronyms, role specific verbiage which relates to others in the same role or profession, do others understand us?”

Take Away:   After listening to this keynote individuals will have a better understanding of the need to relate to others, not just Project Managers.
