POETICALLY SPEAKING

The power of words through poetry and
how to communicate more effectively 
 

"The P.O.E.T.R.Y Model really made me think about how I can communicate more effectively. The workshop was very informative! It showed me different ways to communicate from a perspective that I haven't come across before, which means that I won't forget it."

- Workshop Attendee, V2V Youth Service, London
