UNDERSTANDING COLLABORATION

Fusion Comms:

Release the power of collaboration

What’s the best way to make your voice heard in a collaborative project?

The multiplier effect of a collaborative project can deliver big wins for everyone – but only if different professional languages and cultures can be successfully combined. And, while the overall goal is collaboration, the project outcomes are more likely to reflect the interests and expertise of the best collaborative communicators in the group.

Our workshop takes a highly practical look at the communication theory behind successful collaboration, and the skills that facilitate it. It’s a must for every team that wants to contribute in ways that move a collaboration forward for the benefit of all involved, whilst having their own expertise acknowledged.
