May 30, 2003 – The St. Thomas-St. John Chamber of Commerce is hosting a half-day workshop on "Becoming a Powerful Communicator" Tuesday morning on St. Thomas that's open to members and non-members.
Corporate leadership and organizational consultants Russ Grieger and Tom Tyne are the presenters for the session, which will teach participants "the elements of purposeful, results-oriented communication in order to build key relationships and realize important goals," according to a release.
"Communication is the most important skill in life," the publicity states. "It is at the center of all our relationships, and it is critical to each and every one of our roles; yet, communication is not an end in itself, but rather a valuable tool to produce intended, meaningful results."
Grieger and Tyne, both psychologists, between them have more than 50 years of experience as motivators working with groups and individuals, both in the Caribbean and on the U.S. mainland. Their presentation will incorporate research findings, business strategies and personal experience.
The workshop fee is $15 for chamber members and $25 for others, with discounts available for groups. Space is limited and reservations are requested. Registration is from 8:30 to 9 a.m. Tuesday in the chamber offices on Main Street in downtown Charlotte Amalie. The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to noon.
For reservations and more information, call the chamber office at 776-0100.
