Career Development Lecture: Communicating with Impact

Join us for this special career development lecture. Participants will be introduced to the basics of presenting their ideas effectively.  We will discuss using the IPOP method, which consists of having Intention, Presence, Opening your throat and conveying a Pithy Message every time that you present. Participants will investigate how their posture, eye contact, gestures and movement affect the quality of daily communications and also how to read their listener’s body language.  Participants will learn how to modulate their vocal tone, breath control, speaking rate, inflection and use of fillers to assure pleasant, compelling vocal production.  They will learn strategies to develop succinct meaningful messages and compelling professional introductions.
