Description

Module 1: Writing to Get Things Done® and Module 2: Speaking to Get Things Done, when coupled together, are a powerful, transformational experience that unleashes participants’ potential to be the dynamic communicators they envision themselves to be. 

This three-day bootcamp improves the actual on-the-job writing and speaking skills required for successful leadership. The real power of our Fast-Track curricula is that people learn to get to the point quickly and clearly. 

The biggest benefit this program gave us is practical street knowledge that we were able to apply immediately.
