Eng. Yasser started his session with an entertaining video that shows a miscommunication between George Bush and Condoleezza Rice. George Bush and Condoleezza Rice get confused when trying to contact the Prime minister of China due to misinterpretations, clearly showing the importance of communication in our lives.
Then he defined the word skill and how it can be acquired by practice which is opposite to a talent which is much rarer. A talent reflects something you are inherently born with, its a gift.
After that Eng. Yasser moved on to a small discussion with the audience about the importance of communication between people all the time and about the elements of communication: the sender, receiver, the message and the media of transfer.
Finally, Eng. Yasser asked some of the audience to present role plays that model some situations in life where we encounter good or bad communication. He then discussed the reasons of success or failure of communication in each of the cases
