Ed Barks puts your team on the right communications track by speaking on today’s important communications issues.

  • How Important Are Nonverbal Signals? Your spokespeople will understand how to utilize nonverbal tools to connect more effectively at the podium, before the reporter’s notebook, and in the workplace.
  • Wolf Blitzer Doesn’t Hate You: C-suite executives and others who deal with the media will gain insights into creating a healthy attitude and adding confidence-inspiring communications skills.
  • Advocating in Today’s Harsh Political Climate: As the political ground rules shift, you need more than the facts on your side when delivering your message to policymakers. Ed shows how to target and persuade the opinion leaders that matter.
