Effective Communication Workshop with GoldJam Creative

Date: 10/22/2019

Time: 6:30pm
Where: LMHQ, 150 Broadway, 20th Floor, New York NY

Have you ever left a meeting with no idea of what you're supposed to do next? Believe it or not, that’s you and nearly half of the workforce! In fact, businesses spend an average of 17 hours a week clarifying previous communication (which translates to an annual cost of half a million dollars!).
At this interactive training, participants explored best practices for communicating clearly and productively in-person, on the phone, and online, as well as how to resolve workplace issues as they happen. In doing so, they learned how to save time, prevent wasted effort, and improve their bottom line. 
The workshop was led by GoldJam Creative, a company that teaches communication skills using their background in acting and comedy, combined with hard research. 
Workshop Leader: Jen Jamula, co-founder of GoldJam Creative
