CommunicationCounts™ is a virtual learning platform designed to improve written and verbal communication. It is a series of courses, each addressing a common business scenario ranging from writing an email or report to presenting in meetings of all kinds.

Each course consists of engaging videos; animations, demonstrations and tips/techniques delivered by professional trainers who all former TV newscasters. The videos are accompanied by exercises co-developed by global enterprise learning specialists.

Why eLearning?

It is the most cost efficient way to scale a core capability, communication. CommunicationCounts™:

  • Saves money: Provides what ordinarily requires live workshops run by professional trainers
  • Saves time: Employees can access the modules at their desks and work at their own pace and time of their choosing
  • Ensures consistency: Employees learn to write and speak using the same proven communication techniques while respecting style differences around the world

How does it Work?

CommunicationCounts™ can be consumed as a full course or in “byte”-size bits at your desk, or in a facilitated training session. A full script accompanies the modules as an option to the videos, and to increase facilitator comfort with the content.
