Role play exercises assume an important role for organizations seeking to improve their executives’ media interview and public speaking capabilities. That’s why Barks Communications has issued “Role Play Your Way to Communication Success,” a tip sheet designed to aid its clients.

“Communications consultants who care about their clients’ well-being provide tools to help them achieve success in the long run,” said company President Ed Barks.

“’Role Play Your Way to Communication Success’ shows how any organization can create its own internal mini-training session,” he added. “The best part is these interim sessions will now support the formal training workshops led by their communications training consultant.”

Among the advice Barks offers in the tip sheet:

  • Set firm program objectives.
  • Anticipate real world questions that might arise when dealing with reporters, members of Congress, and other audiences.
  • Always assess feedback immediately after each drill.

“Role Play Your Way to Communication Success” is available by calling Barks Communications at (540) 955-0600.

They gain sharper verbal and nonverbal talents, more confidence, added opportunities for career advancement, and realization of long-term business goals.
