Communication Courses
Part of a STAR Programme

This one-day course will give you insight in how to deal effectively with stakeholders in your working environment (projects, teams, organization…).. Many people are involved or will undergo the impact of your work activities. Each of these people may have other interests; up to you to align people towards success.

Organisational politics, stakeholder management, aligning people on a project or in a team…. It all comes together when you and your colleagues work across the organisation in project management. So many people to take into account, so many viewpoints… An effective clinical research professional is above all an effective and skilled influencer.
