Abstract:

Effective communication enhances customer experience and client satisfaction. But how can you communicate effectively, especially with difficult people? Think of communication as a process, with steps necessary to ensure clarity and understanding. Communication can be expressed in a multitude of ways, the process is complex, and while speech is the most predictable variable, there are other essential mechanics to consider. Dr. Carmen Kimble will discuss the communication process and demonstrate how to communicate in difficult situations with interactive exercises.

Speaker Biography:

Prior to Postmaster, she held the positions of Quality Specialist, Master Instructor, Project Manager, Computerized Forwarding, as well as various positions in human resources, marketing, and finance.

Carmen’s true passion, however, is teaching.
