The key to successfully starting, growing or leading a business is effective communications. Your great idea will not get interest from anyone if you can’t share your vision, persuasively pitch, and clearly market your products and services. Come learn these skills and meet the coaches who can help improve your business communication skills so you can get ahead professionally. And if you're a coach, you don't want to miss this.
NCCA Canada is once again proudly partnering with YEDI (York Entrepreneurship Development Institute) and the City of Toronto to host a full day event including lunch at Toronto City Hall where you will learn how to develop these vital business communication skills. Learn from speakers, panelists and join interactive seminars hosted by industry professionals on the topics of social media marketing, creating a genuine elevator pitch, corporate trainer tips, running a successful coaching business, and how to concisely pitch your business idea in 2 minutes with no slides, complete with professional feedback!
This is an exciting and unique opportunity to meet coaches, trainers, entrepreneurs, business owners and select vendors, gathering together to connect, share and learn. This event is open for everyone, but space is limited. Join us and take a big step in upping your business communication skills!
