“I’d have written a shorter letter, but I didn’t have time.”      
~Mark Twain


In personal and professional situations, you and the members of your organization face the challenge of effective communication everyday.

Well-turned Phrases is an entertaining and practical keynote presentation that will provide attendees with all the tips and tools necessary to create the perfect communication ~ whether it’s personal or professional.

Using the principles from her latest book, Words to That Effect, Ms. Geshekter delivers an information-packed program that’s the perfect addition to your sales meeting, awards banquet or annual conference. “It seems as though the more ways we have to communicate—voice mail, email, Twitter, text messaging and other social networking media—the less skilled we’ve become at conveying what’s truly on our mind or in our heart.”

Choosing the right words is a time-consuming challenge, but it’s a challenge that reaps huge benefits. Whether you’re looking for healthier relationships, increased sales, customer retention or simply want to brush up on the basics of personal letter-writing, psychologist, consultant and author, Barbara Geshekter will guide your organization with her common sense talking points on communication strategies, philosophies and insights into the power of words, common mistakes to avoid, and subtle nuances to help you compose and convey the perfect message.

An indispensable resource for anyone who knows what they want to say, but doesn’t know how to say it, Well-turned Phrases offers real-world solutions and samples, whether you need to send a sympathy note, negotiate a contract, change hairdressers, fire a vendor or simply thank a neighbor for picking up the mail.

Ms. Geshekter has consulted with hundreds of individuals and businesses in the United States and Canada over the past 30 years. Her communication strategies, simple guidelines and helpful techniques will assure you of a gracious, effective communication every time.

You’ll learn and laugh and leave with a better understanding of the elements for successful written and spoken communication.
