Explores the importance of training in communications to enhance one’s business career. It is often taken for granted that a training in communications serves as an end in itself but such a training has far more implications than the communications graduate or management may realize. Indeed, the value of a training in communications permeates any organization. In spite of the growing awareness of training in communications, as seen from the numerous communication programmes in companies, and the value of communication in the workplace, it is sobering to note the low esteem in which communications professionals are held. Addresses this issue to emphasize the value of communications training and suggests how communicators can achieve better business success with the kind of training they have received.
