Purpose of this Course
The primary audience of the presented course is a wide range of corporate managers – from assistant level "freshmen" to the much more advanced executives. It is not limited, however, to the corporate environment – it will be of interest to anyone who wishes to more effectively communicate ideas, messages, and information in general.

The main goal of the course is the significant improvement of communication skills, primarily, by means of preparation and delivery of efficient business presentations (spoken or written). Major attention is paid to the position and interests of all "stakeholders" – "clients", "consumers", and "providers" of a presentation.

Exercises and students' practice are core in the course. It is highly interactive – students receive immediate feedback from peers and the instructor.
