Trafcom News Podcast 133: Communicate your way to a brighter career


white bookGerry Lewis photoStand out. Get noticed. Be brilliant. An interview with Gerry Lewis.

How many times have you been in a meeting that feels like the movie Groundhog Day? (“Haven’t we discussed this before – to no end?”) How many times have you seen someone bore the audience with a pointless presentation?

In the new book by Gerry Lewis, SHINE, you’ll learn how not to be that person. In this practical and insightful book, Gerry shows us how to communicate our way to a brighter career by standing out, getting noticed and even being brilliant.

Gerry is widely regarded as an expert in stakeholder persuasion, employee engagement, training and facilitation and change management. He has conducted workshops and learning programs in more than 40 countries in North America, Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

In this 16-minute podcast, Gerry explains why it’s so important for communicators today to sharpen their skills – in meetings, presentations, networking and more.
