This week we are focusing on communication.

Communication is an essential part of everyday life. Effective communication is undoubtedly one of the most important basic skills, and effective communication goes beyond simply conveying information. It's about connecting and engaging with others, creating trusting relationships, learning from each other and, sometimes, influence others and spur them into action.
