August 3 | 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. | PLV
Being able to speak effectively in public and give presentations is critical in the business world.

Providing Constructive Feedback
August 10 | 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. | NYC
Providing constructive feedback not only helps solve immediate issues, but can also prevent potential problems that can ultimately have a negative impact on your department and greater environment. At the end of this workshop, participants will gain an enhanced understanding of proper feedback approaches, techniques, and will be able to evaluate their current effectiveness when providing feedback to others.
