Memphis, Tennessee – Orgwide is pleased to announce a partnership with author Ron Ruggiero to convert content from his book, “FOSTER™: Exceptional Conversation Skills (For the Rest of Us)” to a lively interactive online learning course.

We all have experienced that awkward networking reception or social cocktail event. You realized you need to make those valuable contacts, but you aren’t sure where to start with the conversation…now FOSTER™ is here to help. Pick your guide, and follow them through the interactive journey of learning the “Art of Conversation”, an easy to remember system that is designed to set you apart from others and leave the person with whom you are speaking with feeling that they are the most important person in the world. This rapport creates an environment which allows for a relationship to develop quickly and easily – making those networking events much less painless!

This success led Orgwide to ask, if “relationships” are truly essential to an organization’s success, shouldn’t conversational skills be a priority for corporate training?

The FOSTER™ Method of Conversation was created by Ron Ruggiero, and has been put into practice thousands of times by student-leaders and business professionals in sales and service roles. Mr. Ruggiero has been consistently recognized as a highly effective communicator and trainer. His career includes over twenty-five years as a global sales and marketing professional, primarily in the healthcare industry.

Orgwide specializes in developing eLearning, instructor-led, and blended training based on the specific needs of our clients. This partnership combines Orgwide’s expertise in instructional design, cognitive psychology, and graphic arts with Ron’s proven methods for teaching conversational techniques.
