Universities across Scotland are back in to full swing this week following the summer break and it was great to share a couple of hours with those returning to St Andrews or joining the university for the first time.

Ranging from first to fourth year students who start their work towards additional credits in the form of a Professional Skills Curriculum, last night’s lecture was about Confidence in Communication. In true negotiator style we talked through our deadline and enjoyed an extra hour with Q&As.

Returning next month to present ‘Communicating Under Pressure’ and the following month to share some tactics for ‘Conflict Resolution’ I look forward to working with this fabulous group again.
