About the session

The characteristics of a good wine can teach us a lot about the characteristics of a good communicator. Each wine is unique in its character and so too is each person. However, there are common ingredients and methods that go in to producing the finished article, whether it be a good wine or a good communicator. Through tasting five different Spanish and Portuguese wines, each with a unique character, this session will relate these characteristics to the five essential characteristics of a good communicator, from preparation through to execution of a message.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • identify the key stages in the communication process.
  • recognise the 5 most important characteristics of a good communicator.
  • implement a strategy to communicate more effectively.
