Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
When it comes to communicating our ideas, speaking concisely is a frequent challenge for most speakers. It doesn’t matter if English is your first language or not.
We have so much to say but a short time to share it.
There are many advantages when it comes to speaking concisely. Concise language portrays your professionalism and competence. It’s easier for you to understand what you want to say and for your listener to trust you more, remember your message and be more persuasive. This is even more crucial when you are communicating across global teams and cultures.
