About the Presentation
In a perfect world every conversation would be easy, but in reality, some don’t work out the way we’d like them to. Did you ever think, "Why did I say that?" or "I should have said this." In this 45-minute, highly interactive workshop, you will be introduced to strategies to get more out of your interactions with clients, project team members, and other key stakeholders. Using fun improvisational activities and group discussion, you will practice thinking on your feet and quickly getting to the point.
Effective communication, in general: audience, media / message, attention vs. "noise", etc.
About the Speaker
Trainer. Facilitator. Improviser. Believer. Let's start with believer. Lori believes that when people communicate clearly and confidently personal and organizational successes are possible. That's why her company, Lorim Resources, LLC creates and delivers training programs focused on critical communications skills – impromptu speaking (i.e. thinking on your feet), public speaking, team collaboration, and customer engagement (sales and customer service). Combining a successful corporate career (25 years at Verizon Communications in sales management, learning and development, and marketing communications) and a background in performing arts, her public and custom workshops integrate improvisation and role-play to create fun and meaningful learning experiences. Lori also works one-to-one to help clients raise their skill level in thinking on their feet and presenting their ideas. Lori holds a Masters of Public Administration from American University in Washington, D.C. and a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of New York at Albany. Her "other" life has been spent in the local theatre scene where she has been acting, directing, and improvising. You can see her play as a member of StageCoach Theatre's improv troupe, The StageCoach Bandits.
