WHEN WE CONNECT WITH OTHER PEOPLE, WE ARE ALL CAPABLE OF GREAT THINGS

More and more of our communications are happening though a screen. We befriend, follow, connect, but somewhere along the road we've forgotten the true power of person to person interactions. We've fallen into a culture where formal communications are purely logical, data driven and often leave audiences uninspired, disinterested or downright bored.

This is where poor communications get risky.

A disengaged conference audience makes the session a waste of time.

A team who fail to communicate with others can sink an otherwise exciting project.

A business pitch win rests upon how the client feels about the teams involved.

  The ramifications of not putting effort into communications can be disastrous. 

However, when done well, that session becomes the talk of the conference, the team works slickly and quickly to solve problems and the clients feel confident in trusting you with work; the content hasn't changed, the difference is all in communication

Together we can launch amazing projects, create first class businesses and forge lasting connections - but to get there we must first communicate powerfully.

We must communicate, person to person, remembering that people are emotional as well as logical, and that there is nothing more compelling than someone who speaks from the heart.* 

THIS IS WHY DY TRAINING EXISTS

*and along the way we'll eliminate boring PowerPoint presentations
