We’re pleased to announce that in our next BA community webinar we’ll be joined by Neil Mullarkey, author of ‘Seven Steps to Improve your People Skills‘, actor, and co-founder the world famous improvisation group The Comedy Store Players. Neil’s session is entitled:
Soft Skills, Hard Business
This is a topic that I am sure will resonate with many of us, as the interpersonal element of the BA role is absolutely crucial. The session will be held on 16th Janaury 2017 at 18:30 GMT (UK Time). The session is completely free to attend, but we are limited to just 100 attendees, so please register early to avoid disappointment!
Neil will talk about the fact that people skills are becoming even more important in the digital world, where face-to-face contact still matters.
Some people feel they might not be great at this stuff but Neil will show how easy tweaks – simple steps as he calls them – can make a big difference.
