On Thursday, 14th November, Yusra Training delivered a course on “Communication Skills for Community Leaders” in Leyton, East London.
A number of community leaders from around the UK, including Edinburgh, Blackburn and London were in attendance.
In this seminar, we looked at some of the secrets of the art of communication. We learned:
- different communication styles and discovered the delegates’ own styles
- how to deliver a speech / khutbah that is effective and meaningful to all your audience
- how to develop rapport with an individual, a group of people or even a large audience
- about non-verbal communication and how powerful that can be when properly employed
- some super effective public speaking techniques
And thanks to the organisers, we were treated to a delicious Somalian style lunch!
