How to C.A.P.T.U.R.E. your own Communication Skills
by Andrew Michael, Business Credit Magazine

Every day, people communicate with one another. Whether it's face to face, over the phone or through social media, people are constantly engaging to accomplish daily tasks. For credit managers, Syntesis Global LLC President and CEO Rick Hernandez says communication is pretty much in the job description, as it is the key to running a successful operation with colleagues and customers alike. As part of FCIB's leadership webinar series, Hernandez explored how best to communicate with these parties during his presentation, "C.A.P.T.U.R.E. the Excellence of Communication," . . . .
