Sign Up for ‘Spokesperson Training’ Sessions at Fall Board
Leaders of local and state home builders associations and their members have an opportunity to learn the latest interviewing and public speaking techniques through NAHB’s “Spokesperson Training” program during the association's fall board of directors meeting in San Diego in September.
Dates for “Interview Skills” and “Presentation Skills” have been set and members can register securely online with a credit card for one or both of the popular training sessions on the NAHB Web site.
The program includes two different one-day seminars:
- “Interview Skills” — helps participants master strategies for broadcast and print interviews, including message development. Attendees will learn how to give clear, concise answers in a high-pressure, spur-of-the moment interview.
- “Presentation Skills” — focuses on how to organize and deliver a speech or presentation and handle questions and answers.
Both sessions were sold out at the spring board of directors meeting and members have already begun to sign up for the fall sessions. Sessions are limited to 12 participants each day.
- "Interview Skills" Wednesday, Sept. 24
- "Presentation Skills" Thursday, Sept. 25
Each seminar is led by professional communication consultants who have more than 30 years of experience training NAHB members on the critical issues they face every day.
Interview Skills and Presentation Skills cost $495 per person for each one-day seminar.
More than 15,000 NAHB leaders have taken Spokesperson Training since the program began in 1979.
