Improving Communication – after the presentation

A large part of improving your communication skills comes after you leave the podium. A great way to improve is to get feedback on what you said and how you came across. If you are able to have someone regularly complete the assessment below then you will be able to build a tremendously helpful ongoing evaluationĀ of your progress. Scores of 1-3 are where you want to target efforts for improvement. A free 15 minute consultation with Elizabeth Hunt is available if you’d like some help creating a plan to improve.
