Combining CPD with wine tasting - what could be better?

Are you ready to get back to face to face CPD events? Enjoy the odd glass of wine? Then join us at The Nottingham Playhouse on the 17th August for something guaranteed to be a little different.

Limited availability so book now to avoid disappointment!

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 wines, each with a unique character, this fun & unique session will relate these characteristics to the five essential characteristics of a good communicator, from preparation through to the execution of a message.
