Assertive Communication for Incentive Planners  Sponsored by The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort

Assertive Communication is the ability to get your message across without the delivery getting in the way.  We move fast during events and need to be able to communicate quickly and efficiently, while building the motivation with our teams.  How?  This workshop will tell you!  Gain immediately applicable skills for effective communication and relationship building, all at the same time.



• Communicate effectively when things go wrong.

• Communicate in a fast-paced event environment while building relationships.
