Communication Courses
Part of a STAR Programme

This is a 1-day course designed to improve your communication skills within the clinical research environment and upgrade your presentation skills to influence better.

In this 1-day course we start the day with ‘excellent communication’ towards teams.  In this part you will get to know all about leadership styles in coaching, how to have a meeting regarding objectives and how to praise, correct and motivate conversations. The second part of the training will be focused on influencing presentation skills towards promoters. You will equally learn how to plan your presentation and use your audience. The day will be finished by a workshop by means of a short presentation to the group.
