Juan Bryant delivers a webinar version of his popular NARS 2018 roundtable about effective communication in the digital age.

From text and email to phone calls and face-to-face conversations, there are more channels of communication today than ever before. But even though we have so many ways to talk to each other, it’s become very easy for meaning and intention to get lost in translation.

In this month’s ARA webinar, Juan brings fresh life to his “Verbal Judo” presentation NARS 2018. Not only will he cover the current best practices for face-to-face encounters and electronic communications so that people understand what you’re saying, he’ll also teach us how to use the “diffuser” technique.
