Powerful and Persuasive Communication

Become a more dynamic and persuasive communicator in four weeks.

Powerful communicators achieve more. Excellent communication skills are not innate, they are learned and are essential to maximizing the impact of your work. 

This interactive and intensive online four-week executive program will transform how you communicate. Through live sessions with Brown's renowned faculty member Dr. Barbara Tannenbaum, practice in teams and individualized coaching from experts, you will build on your strengths to dramatically improve your communication skills in every scenario: one-on-one, small groups, large audiences — both live and online. Each week, you will apply key concepts from the course in your own work in real-time.

Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from Brown School of Professional Studies.

Distinguished Senior Lecturer Barbara Tannenbaum, Ph.D. has partnered with Brown University’s School of Professional Studies to design this live online, limited enrollment course. This unique program gives you direct access to the highly-effective core concepts, practices and one-on-one coaching techniques/skills that are hallmarks of Dr. Tannenbaum’s academic and professional programs. She has taught thousands of students and professionals how to communicate effectively.
