  • Working from Home—Presenting from Home

    For many of our clients, working from home while social distancing also means presenting from home. As virtual meetings become the norm for important organizational conversations and planning, how can you make sure your message comes through as loudly and clearly as if you were meeting in person?

    EMS Communications is conducting virtual training/coaching sessions to help clients brush up their virtual communication skills and prepare for important meetings, so contact us about scheduling time for yourself and your teams.

We tell the story about Jack Nicklaus, and why he liked to wear yellow shirts on the golf course on Sundays.
