Communication: A Blueprint for Leadership

In construction, there are countless reasons to connect. Whether it’s to collaborate on new projects or to share news about the industry, the efficiency of the construction process depends on one thing: effective communication. Effective communication is about knowing your audience and speaking to them in a clear, concise, and inspirational way. Through inspiration, you can move your ideas into action every time you speak.

In this session, speaker Seka Ojdrovic-Phillips will break down principles of effective communication into four concrete parts: mindset, organized thinking, influential language, and physical presence. By practicing these skills, you’ll be able to communicate with clarity and conviction in any interaction – and to any type of audience. This session is not to be missed by middle management project managers.
