  • The Art and Science of Communication

    Date: 15 January - 16 January 2015
    Venue: Room 3E39, Frenchay Campus

    It's easy to quantify someone with a great proficiency in athletics, performance or industry. What we grade is the difference in levels of skill, application and result. Applying the same logic to how we communicate might not seem useful given that it is something that we have all done since the day we were born. But this course argues that communication is a reflex rather than a learned skill; a response to the environment in which you find yourself, and one that is impossible to stop. If our argument is valid, it would be better to harness and exploit that reflex consciously.
