How to Communicate Better: Answering the Question What Do You Do?


Exec-Comm’s Global Head and contributor to Exec-Comm’s book, Simply Said: Communicating at Work and Beyond (Wiley), Christine Healey de Casanova will run a training session for Rutgers' Global Sports Business program focused on answering the question "What Do You Do?" Attendees of this program are Masters Candidates aspiring to add immediate value to all sectors of the sports industry.

Session Overview

You are rising leader, a student, and an expert in your field. How do you stand out from the crowd, win that next job, or get the buy-in you seek for your ideas? How can you consistently project poise and conviction when the stakes are high? If you seem nervous or uncomfortable, your credibility drops. Strong executive presence and communication skills are essential for success.  Calm, confident and credible professionals adapt to the environment and form an immediate and lasting impression.

In this session, you will learn to:

  • Project executive presence
  • Craft a compelling message about yourself that is focused on others
  • Present with poise
  • Tell compelling stories to support your message
  • Ask and answer questions to engage and connect
