Exchange to Australia

I undertook my studies after serving in the banking and finance industry, where the ability to communicate effectively and efficiently is a crucial determinant for success. This degree exposed me to the theoretical frameworks underpinning communication in the real world, giving me new insights into how to communicate more effectively with people across all strata of society.
