AS THE nation strives towards nurturing its people with the sets of skills needed for the bigger benefits of the country, in line with the Vision 2035, Confex Training Services will be hosting an exclusive Career Development Week at the Badi’ah Hotel along Jalan Tutong today onwards.
In a move to assist professionals and individuals to be better equipped for their careers and personal development, the week will see several workshops suitable to cater to those in sales and marketing, corporate communications, business operations, business development, Finance and Operations, brokers and human resources.
The week will begin with the Business Presentation Skills by award-winning speaking coach, Tim Wade, who has worked previously in training services in the Sultanate.
This year, Tim Wade will be helping participants “further improve their presentation skills” to encourage a more positive interaction with their audience “whether in a business meeting, a sales presentation, a speech before peers, or even to making a clear point resonate with the family audience”.
At the workshop, Tim will be covering speaking skills in aspects such as making personal impact and public speaking. His sessions will also cover tips on handling questions and speaking techniques. Participants will also be able to practise speech delivery during the workshop.
Today will see a finance session for non-finance managers by the Master Trainer James Leong who will guide participants on financial terms such as balance sheet and annual report.
In an interview with the Bulletin, James revealed that his sessions will cover all areas from fundamentals through various stages of basic accounting – essentially giving a crash course on proper management of one’s business account.
Meanwhile, Tom Abbot, world-renowned sales coach, will be conducting his workshop tomorrow, on competitive advantage and consultative selling.
Whereas on October 28, the workshop will resume with sessions on cover memory techniques and brain power boosters by the World Memory Master, Nishant Kasibathala.
