  • the four types of corporate and business communications (human resources, business-related, legal, and informal)
  • how to communicate bad news
  • managing employee-to-employee communication
  • how to measure the impact of internal communications

With valuable strategies for aligning all business correspondence with the company message, Corporate Conversations shows professionals at all levels how to improve their communication skills and maximize the power of both traditional and hi-tech communication tools.
