Speak up – and convince!

Speak up and convince

Rhetoric is a term we are all familiar with and – whether you want to say something in your mother tongue or in a foreign language – it is necessary for effective communication. This is particularly true in the globalised world we live and work in. At the same time, it is a skill you need to keep working on to develop.
