Communication Skills

Manufacturing leaders' programme

The course summarised on these pages was developed by Alison Cooke from one that she was originally involved with delivering as part of Cambridge University's Manufacturing Leaders' Programme.

Through role play, games, discussion and presentations by course leaders, participants will look at issues such as:

  • Goal-setting
  • The pros and cons of video conferencing
  • Communication skills
  • Meetings management
  • Video, web and audio conferencing.

Video, web and audio conferencing offer new, time- and cost- effective means of conducting meetings. However, the technologies can hamper easy communication. This course explores ways of making these conferencing methods an effective way of communicating ideas, strategies and action.

There will be hands-on opportunities to try the conferencing technologies.
