About the presentation

HR professionals spend 70 to 80% of their day engaged in some form of communication.

Why then don’t we devote more time to honing this important skill? In this session we’ll look

at examples of business communication misfires, analyze what went wrong and brainstorm

how to improve. We’ll discuss what works in phone, email and face-to-face communication.

Then we’ll put pen to paper to polish our business writing. We can always improve!

Learning objectives

1. Discover ways to repair communication miscues.

2. Tailor messages to all levels within the organization to communicate effectively.

3. Sharpen listening skills to understand other points of view.

Funnier than a business speaker; more informative than a comedian, Todd Hunt speaks

to organizations that want to add fun to their events and send members back to work

smiling—with tips to improve communication and success.

As an executive at Ogilvy & Mather, one of the world’s largest advertising agencies,

Todd learned the inner workings of communication. Additional positions with an

insurance administrator, retailer and his own marketing company enabled him to

validate his communication concepts.
