Communicating the Right Message: Connecting, Influencing, & Changing Minds

By Portland State University (other events)

Wednesday, June 2 2021 12:00 PM 1:00 PM

In a time when everyone is on edge, meetings are virtual and we feel more disconnected than ever, our words can so easily be misconstrued. It’s not enough to speak your mind; you need to ensure that your message is heard correctly and accepted positively.  How can we communicate for the best results? Dr. Melanie Billings-Yun will introduce four steps to break down barriers and increase your persuasiveness in professional communications.

Presenter: Dr. Melanie Billings-Yun, author of Beyond Dealmaking: Five Steps to Negotiating Profitable Relationships, is an international negotiator and trainer. Her clients include the world’s leading financial institutions, consulting firms, and global brands. She teaches international business at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Studies and Portland State University's School of Business.

This event is free and fully online; a link to the live stream will be emailed prior to the event.
