Posted: 3rd June 2015

Tree of Knowledge will be hosting a Communication breakdown workshop at their Headquarters in Dunfermline on Wednesday 17th June from 10am – 1pm

There’s no getting away from the fact that communication is important. In every situation we find ourselves in, work related or personal we just need to be able to communicate effectively. Think of that person you know who naturally seems to be able to express themselves fully, deliver key messages and inspire people as they go. Just how do they do it? Most of us communicate well in many situations however; occasionally we need a little help.
