Communicating Complex Ideas Efficiently & Effectively: Part II
We will continue working through the techniques and communication challenges put forward in Part I, offering you a chance to further internalize the techniques, and to link them to communication topics presented throughout the rest of the conference.
James Rea - Experts/Clearly, Montpelier, VT
From Session 1:
This workshop is crafted from the ideas and lessons learned in the twenty-plus years of James Rea’s communication experience. It will offer training that is foundational to any communication an attorney might seek to undertake. Whether the attorney is writing or speaking, and whether the audience is a client, a witness, a judge, the media, or even other attorneys, the ideas and exercises herein can help those interactions become more successful. In particular, the workshop seeks to arm participants with a new awareness of audience, and with the agility to meet each audience with the most impactful language possible. The result, we believe, will be attorneys who can meet the goals of their work more efficiently and effectively.
