How designers can master effective communication to influence key decision-makers.

In this 2-hour workshop, we delve into the art of clear and confident communication for designers, empowering you to express your ideas with impact. Discover proven techniques and strategies to enhance your communication skills and build strong relationships with business stakeholders and colleagues.

You will practice how to convey your thoughts, perspectives, and design concepts with clarity and conviction. Gain insights into effective listening, adapting your communication style, and articulating your ideas in a compelling manner.
