The popular training programme “Rhetoric for Women” that Nina Buchaus conducts has welcomed over 500 participants since it started in 2012. The difference between male and female communication can be an obstacle or an asset. Don’t miss this training that gives you concrete tools for surer and more professional impression! 

In this training programme, you learn to get your message across at meetings and oral presentations – skilfully, clearly and intelligibly. 

A professional rhetoric is one that can manage challenging situations during meetings and presentations. Break ineffective habits that often make you feel limited in your role with rhetorical tricks. During the training, women will get the chance to learn how to deliver their message assertively and intelligibly. You’ll also learn how to feel comfortable when giving, for example, oral presentations. By learning persuasion techniques, you’ll quickly radiate more assertiveness and self-assurance. This is something you can make use of inside and outside the office, not least in different types of negotiations.
