Bad Communication Could Cost you Thousands

Bad Communication Could Cost you Thousands


Did you know that more than 50% of common communication pitfalls can be avoided by simply choosing the correct communication medium?

As a business, you aren’t simply communicating for the sake of communication. You’re reaching clients, speaking to prospective clients, building a brand or developing internal strategies and systems.

South African based company Adapt To Change is hosting a free webinar entitled Time to Talk, which will look at how poor communication affects businesses and how best to avoid it.

Vital skills

A multi-national study conducted by Siemens Enterprise Communications revealed that poor communication could annually cost a company over €4 000 (roughly R40 000) per employee. Given the current economic climate it would seem that setting up and managing effective communication channels in a business is vital.

“Effective communication is a prerequisite for achieving sustainable continuous improvement. Businesses who address communication issues and who focus on constructive, clear and open communication will see that exceptional business performance is undoubtedly linked to a better engagement with employees,” says Johann Koegelenberg from Adapt To Change.

“Failing to address communication issues will not only cost money, but will also harm employee morale and will most definitely result in an unhealthy company culture,” he adds.

Time To Talk will be a free online event and the projected outcome will be to assist business owners, managers and employees to make effective and sustainable changes to the way in which they communicate.

The webinar will take place on the 26 February from 19h00 to 20h30 (CAT).  To register go to or for more information contact
