Communicate More By Saying Less: How to Get to the Point

During turbulent times, being heard above the noise is even more challenging. The COVID-19 virus has spawned more competing online communication than ever.

How do you get your message heard? Are you confident speaking to groups but not virtually? Do you do most of the talking? Do you take too long to get your point across? Do you allow the conversation to go down a rabbit hole?

Whether you’re a leader or a financial professional just starting out, you can’t seal the deal or make your point unless you can speak clearly and concisely. If you can't get to the point, the listeners will tune you out.

Join us on Wednesday, May 20th, hear from Diane DiResta, and benefit from tips, tools, and templates to keep you focused, clear, and on track.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • how financial service professionals lose their audience
  • how to create a crisp message
  • to discover where you stumble and lose clarity
  • to identify your most common speaking situation

When you learn to be crisp, you’ll see glazed eyes of boredom turn into raised eyebrows of interest, and your credibility will increase.

We look forward to seeing you then!
