He was speaking as the keynote speaker in an Expert Talk on 'Effective Communication' at Desh Bhagat University. The lecture was especially arranged for the students to boost up their communication skills and its importance in day to day life.
While addressing the students and faculty members, Ambassador Vohra said that Effective Communication is the glue that helps you deepen your connections to others and improve teamwork, decision making and problem solving. It enables you to communicate even negative or difficult messages without creating conflict or destroying trust. He explained to the students that effective communication is a learned skill, it is more effective when it’s spontaneous rather than formulaic. The more the effort and practice you put in, the more instinctive and spontaneous your communication skills will become.
