Act Like You Mean Business: Essential Communication Lessons from Stage and Screen

Do you want to strengthen your business relationships, build trust, motivate teams and better present yourself in the workplace and the marketplace? The key is to treat every communication like a performance - every email, meeting, presentation, interview and networking event. In this engaging, informative webinar, Rob Biesenbach reveals the vital link between show business and your business. Through favorite moments from movies and TV, you'll learn to better connect with people, tell more compelling stories and express your ideas more clearly and creatively. And that can lead to greater success on the job and in your everyday interactions.
