At Barks Communications, we conduct communications training workshops. We work with executives who want to ensure their communications training efforts result in long-term business success, and with experts who want to enhance their career path.
Our clients gain an enhanced reputation, increased confidence, better odds of achieving public policy objectives, and more opportunities for professional advancement. In addition, we aim to inspire a thirst for lifelong learning that makes them better communicators over the long run and earns them the status they deserve.

Strategic Communications Consulting
Many organizations lack the internal capabilities to get their message across to the public. Ed Barks can step in to consult on methods to help you frame your messages, employ sound strategies, and implement the tactics designed to raise the public profile of your organization and the abilities of your key spokespeople.
