Effective communication at executive and board level is a key determinant of the success of the risk management process. This workshop provides participants with an opportunity to learn how to communicate their risk message at executive and board levels. This programme is presented as a facilitated and interactive workshop: Our approach requires the participants to think creatively about communication in the workplace.
At the end of the workshop, the participants are expected to be able to:
- Evaluate and understand the communication needs of the leaders of their organisation
- Adjust the risk message that they wish to communicate to fit the audience’s needs
- Implement communication skills taught by our voice coach, Fiona Ramsay
- Check the effectiveness of their communication efforts in the workplace
Who should attend?
