Barrie Chamber of Commerce- LEADERSHIP & SALES SERIES


The Barrie Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Georgian College to bring leadership and sales training to you! These one-day workshops are for local executives, entrepreneurs, and team leaders, and will be conveniently held at the Barrie Chamber of Commerce office.

Although good communication is always an important element in business, there are some difficult conversations that can have a great impact and lasting effects. Most people are not well prepared for these discussions, and this puts them at a distinct disadvantage. This course provides the tools needed to improve skills and outcomes in handling difficult conversations.
