The BizComm Coaches offer consultations for any College of Business student or faculty member. This service helps individuals improve as communicators by providing advice for:
- Writing (at any stage of the process)
- Presenting (both developing and practicing)
- Visual Aids (PowerPoint, report graphics)
- Teamwork (coordinating work tasks, dealing with team issues)
- And More!
Whether you need help getting started on an assignment, have a quick question about writing mechanics, or are looking for feedback on what you have already developed for a project, the BizComm Coaches are here to help.
Book an Appointment:
There are three types of appointments:
Face-to-Face: You will meet (by appointment) with a BizComm Coach in the office to discuss your assignment. They can help you brainstorm ideas, draft, revise, and polish your project. Many individuals find these to be the most effective kinds of appointments.
Skype: You can video chat with a BizComm Coach while you both review your project. To use this option, you must create a free Skype account and have access to speakers and a microphone or headset.
Phone: If you do not have access to Skype and cannot make it to campus, you can talk with a BizComm Coach on the phone while you both review your materials.
Please note: BizComm Coaching is NOT a drop-off editing service. While editing-related concerns may be addressed during your consultation, the service is designed to help YOU develop your own communication abilities.
