In the last decade, we have become increasingly reliant on virtual communication, but can you properly connect and communicate when you're not in the same physical space? Virtual communication shows no sign of stopping, so we need to understand how to communicate as effectively as possible.

This course is presented by the University of Toronto and taught by Ivan Wanis Ruiz, an instructor at the University of Toronto's School of Continuing Studies. With a background in finance, marketing, HR, and entrepreneurship, Ruiz has a wealth of experience in the business world.
