Do you ever feel that there’s more information to communicate to your stakeholders than ever before? And sometimes your emails aren’t read? Or they’re just ignored or misinterpreted?
We are told to keep the communications short because people are too busy to read our emails. Unfortunately, there’s more changes, regulations, requirements, policies and processes to communicate today and as a result, things get missed and our jobs are made even tougher.
How do you say less but add more value? How do we get our messages across to our stakeholders, quickly and succinctly? Or perhaps you need to shift perceptions and attitudes towards procurement. If you think an email is enough, think again. It is one thing to be an expert in your specific area, but it is quite another to communicate your expertise to others and get them to do what you need them to do. Striking the right balance between keeping your audience interested, while remaining true to your information, is a huge challenge. In other words, persuading your audience to do what you need them to do is hard.
Louise will share with you two techniques that will help you declutter your communication so that you target your audience the first time.
