Business Communication Mentor Program (BCoMP)

Business Communication Mentor Program (BCoMP)

BCoMP establishes a community of business communication mentors who are motivated to help other students with less experience in oral communication. The mentors will develop and deliver a variety of oral communication workshops to help the other students gain confidence and knowledge of effective oral communication in business, and potentially make a positive impact on their performance in oral communication situations.

Responsibilities

Run four half-day oral communication workshops to help students in the Business School learn the skills to communicate effectively, confidently and professionally, and the strategies that help reduce communication apprehension.

How to get involved

Application for participation in BCoMP is open to students of the Business School. To apply, send the documents below via email to Henry Yip (h.yip@unsw.edu.au):
