The ability to communicate effectively in written and oral presentation is essential for anyone seeking a successful career. In the course of their work, professionals will need to produce reports, perform well in interviews, give presentations, and chair meetings, as well as deal with the daily barrage of e-mails and phone calls. In Communication Skills, Richard Ellis offers essential reading for any ambitious professional. This book offers both practical exercises and realistic guidance. The effectiveness, as opposed to the efficiency of e-mail and PowerPoint, is discussed.  Drawing from his experience as a communications consultant, Ellis provides strategies for enhanced interpersonal, group and organizational communication.
