EFFECTIVE communication skills are at the heart of Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s (HBKU), part of Qatar Foundation, upcoming community classes. Taking place across February and March, each four-day course provides participants with tools to succeed in a challenging business environment.
Classes begin with a ladies-only session on enhancing communication and life skills, which also covers presentation techniques and the power and effect of words. This is followed by a class on how effective communication leads to better decision making, particularly in team settings. The series concludes with a course offering practical advice on delivering impactful and influential speeches.
Developed with students and business professionals in mind, sessions focus on stressing core messages and ideas and the importance of body language, as well as tailoring speeches for specific audiences.
Speaking ahead of the classes, Maryam al Mannai, vice president, Student Affairs, said: “While HBKU is a world-class university with a suitably global outlook, we never forget the importance of encouraging positive transformation at home. To this end, these classes support our efforts to engage with local communities and provide potentially life-changing skills. The modern business world is fluid, competitive and littered with potential pitfalls. Our classes will demonstrate that even the most-complex challenges can be overcome with confident and effective communication.”
Classes will take place at the Minaretein (College of Islamic Studies), Education City, on the following dates and times: Communication and Life Skills, February 16 (Sunday) to February 19 (Wednesday), from 5pm to 7pm (Ladies only, Arabic language); Effective Communication, February 23 (Sunday) to February 26 (Wednesday), from 5pm to 7:30pm (Arabic language); and Master Public Speaking, March 1 (Sunday) to March 4 (Wednesday), from 5pm to 7:30pm (English language).
Hamad Bin Khalifa University regularly holds events to highlight its research activities and projects.
