The Lundberg Media workshop will teach you and your team to communicate more effectively in order to reach your personal and organizational goals. We offer half-day, one-day and two-day sessions, based on your specific needs.
Typically, the morning is devoted to presentations and group exercises, with the afternoon spent in one-on-one follow-up meetings with individual participants. Our standard workshop can be customized to address the unique challenges of your organization.
Each workshop begins with an exploration of how communication and influence actually work, including:
- Common barriers and how to avoid them
- The role of attention in effective communication
- How to use the neuroscience of change to become a more persuasive communicator
- The four keys to effective communication
- How to increase your influence with business colleagues

She provided great value through her timely insights into the challenges IT organizations now face. Bravo!” – Rebecca Rhoads, Chief Information Officer, Raytheon Company
“We engaged Abbie to facilitate two executive panels at our PegaWORLD global user conference. The sessions were outstanding. In both, the executives were well prepared and the logistics were flawless. Abbie did a great job of framing the most important issues and leading the discussion in a way that was both salient and dynamic. Our audience was fully engaged and the panels received 5 star ratings in our post panel survey. People who have done this before know that pulling off an engaging professional executive panel requires a real art in both the preparation and the execution. If you want it done well, I strongly recommend Abbie for the job.” – Max Mayer, Sr. Vice President, Pegasystems
