communicating with poise & purpose
communications training for Cleveland Foundation fellows
Each year, the Cleveland Foundation welcomes a cohort of fellows to serve in nonprofit organizations around the community. As part of their professional development, they participate in monthly workshops on various topics—including communications.
Collective Reach provided a three-hour training to the 2019-2020 cohort of Public Service Fellows that covered:
- Storytelling: Why storytelling works, and how to use storytelling techniques in your work
- Professional communications skills; presentations, networking, writing, and interpersonal relations
- Communicating on behalf of your organization: Developing an effective elevator speech
