Strategic communication is a notion that is becoming more and more popular across the world as researches show that communication is a critical business tool for improving organizational performance and particularly for aligning and motivating employees. Being an effective communicator is a key competency of professionals who want to make a positive difference to their organization’s performance. For this very reason, European Professionals Network (EPN) is going to hold a seminar on “Strategic Communication and Leadership” to expand its members’ leadership and organizational development skills combining with strategic communication expertise. The seminar will be given by trained Political Scientist Steffi Peuckert, who will share her experiences as a freelance communication trainer at Ceran Lingua International and as Vice-President of the Armada Toastmaster Club of Brussels. We would be delighted to have your presence at this event which will also include advices on and tricks of effective communication, performance evaluations, time management and leadership training opportunities.
