Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO, will conduct the 2-day program designed to improve the learners’ skills in crafting masterful reports and effective storytelling. It also aims to boost their confidence when presenting to audiences, whether small or large, in-person or online.“Even before the pandemic forced the shift to more time spent in virtual meetings,we at TalkShop have always championed oral and written business communication that is concise, straightforward, relatable, and actionable,” stressed Viesca, who’s conducted similar programs for the Department of Tourism, Department of Justice, Department of Science and Technology, Development Bank of the Philippines, United Nations among others.
She adds, “In business communication, our outputs – from simple, everyday documents to in-depth written reports to oral presentations – reflect the level of our professionalism. They do not only provide information or speak of our views, they also represent who we are as employees.”
