About the course

In a world where texts, emails and tweets are often sent without a second thought – and we often work at a distance – the importance of a considered and effective approach to communication has never been greater. What’s more, recent research among employers has shown communication as the number one skill they are looking for in finance professionals.

This course demonstrates how to choose and use appropriate communication methods to achieve your goals.
