I am a big fan of Warren Buffett (my Aunt Margie -- maiden name Margie Lee Canaday -- was his classmate in Omaha and was even mentioned in his autobiography, Snowball), so I carved out some time this week to watch his town hall event with Bill Gates at Columbia Business School students on CNBC. Now, it is one thing for me to try to explain to executives the value of our Media Interview Skills Training and Presentation Skills Training services, but to have Warren Buffett put it into dollars and cents -- that takes it to another level!
So when Mr. Buffett explained that improving communications skills can increase the future earnings potential of executives by 50 percent -- which conservatively translates into about a half million dollars for the average college graduate -- it was music to my ears!
You could improve on that (he's referring to future earnings), many of you, and I certainly could have when I got out, just in terms of learning communication skills. It's not something that's taught, I actually went to a Dale Carnegie course later on in terms of public speaking. But if you improve your value 50 percent by having better communication skills, it's another 500-thousand dollars in terms of capital value.
What a bargain -- invest less than $2,000 in our Presentation Skills Training services that teach you the tools and techniques to improve your communication skills and Warren Buffett estimates your return on investment will be 250 times that amount. Thanks for the endorsement, Mr. Buffett!
