ABC Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter

ABC to Offer Renowned Power Communication Training

Rapport Leadership International, an educational company dedicated to developing and empowering talented people, will present Power Communication at ABC Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter Sept. 26 to 28.

Communication tools and techniques are practiced one-on-one, in small teams, and in large group exercises. Students learn to build rapport and gain active listening skills for improving all relationships — business and personal. This class may be taken with co-workers and/or family members. Whether you want to increase your sales productivity, or want to build your agreement gaining skills, this interactive program will enhance your communication effectiveness immediately.
