    The impact of growth in the knowledge and skills of an individual may lead the person to grow in a specified direction of their professional life. However, in this course I as a student gained several relevant information regarding two main subjects. These subjects are marked as Oral communication along with interpersonal skills. In addition to it, the assignment aims to focus on the reflection that I experienced within the course. There are evaluations made on the usefulness of the course subjects along with their link for my future development. Moreover, the utilization of both oral communication and the different interpersonal skills are analysed with respect to the subjects taught within the classroom.   
    Description of events and level of experience gained
    In the course of learning, I mainly gained interest for meeting the two main subjects of oral communication and interpersonal skills. Moreover, between the two events within the course subject, the impact led by the set of interpersonal skills was highly effective for my professional growth as a well. As marked by Wesley, Jackson & Lee (2017), there lays different theory for an interpersonal skills among them the theory of Listening skills acts as the base of an individual’s growth in their career. However, from the Listening skill theory, I have identified the very fact of corer differences marked between the listening and hearing processes. In order to make us more clear about the same sounding words “listening” and “hearing”, my professor explained the activity of hearing as an involuntary physiological process, whereas, listening is a deliberate, psychological process. I further analysed the need for listening in daily life on an individual. The result that I gained relates to a two-way communication that is possible through an active skill of listening. 
    However, on the other hand, another event within the course subject was marked for the oral communication. During my class hours, my professor always focused on the way she spoke to us. I generated the reason for such a concern after I came to know the type of oral communication the professor was involved within the classroom. In the class discussions, there were data marked for the different type of public situations that requires to a specified way of communication. These situations involved the following:
    Work presentation
    Sport pep talk
    Lift pitch
    Work briefing
    Wedding speech
    Impromptu speech 
    Therefore, from the all the situations, I identified the type of situation my professor was dealing with while she communicated with us in the classroom. It was marked for Work presentation, as teaching us was her work and the manner she informed us with the lectures was marked as her way of presentation (Mercer & Matthews 2017). This was a bit difficult task for me to get in the first attempt. However, I gradually hold the grip of the topics being taught in the course hours. 
    Interpretation and evaluating events
    Present Knowledge
    During the class hours, I used to analyse the methods being utilized by the professor to teach us. Thus, by doing so, I was able to generate new facts related to the two main events every day. As for instance, at present the knowledge, I gained for both Oral communication and Interpersonal skills are enough to differentiate the important aspects of a situation from a least important one. In case of Oral communication, presently I am able to market who my target audience are as per the face situation, whereas, in terms of interpersonal skills, the theory of listening skills is applied by me to cope with the distractions and to keep my audience attracted towards things that I share with them (Ameen 2017). In case of Interpersonal skills, I presently know about the applied strategies that may get implemented as per the faced situation. That is for attending skills with positive nonverbal actions the factors to be considered were the posture of involvement, appropriate motion of body, eye contact, psychological attentions along with presence of non-distracting atmosphere (Nazron, Lim & Nga 2017). 
    However, in case  of oral communication, I recently acquired knowledge regarding the way of planning that is required before one speaks in front of their target audience. Factors that are now considered by me before speaking is to identify what actually I require to say. Moreover, the best way that can be utilized for saying the matter so that my audience gains more interest and authenticity in the overall discussion. In addition to the discussion, another factor that I came up with was the three time planning illustrations that were developed by me during the course. These illustrations further involved factors as the following:
    Actual talk
    Preparation and planning
    However, as a student I marked that majority of time must be spent on preparation and planning of the matters that are required to be discussed in front of the audience (Di, Goh & Lewis 2017). My professor marked all the facts that I discussed during the course study. Thus, by taking care of my interpersonal skills and type of oral communication I conduct, my target audience for the concerned incident is satisfied.      
    Linking events with other aspects of business communication
    The world of competitive market always seek for individuals that are competent in term sof their presentation skills and quality of communication (Gresch & Rawls 2017). However, within the course hours, I was assigned with several practical home works, so that my key area of interest can be developed. During the course hour, I raised question related to the need and the link that I could mark for the development of interpersonal skills and oral communication with the business world as a whole. According to my professor, the interpersonal skills are always present within an individual, whereas, efforts are made for both oral communication and any one of the key skills that fall within the set of interpersonal skills (Engleberg et al. 2017). However, in my case I prefer to listen to the entire incident first and then suggest my opinion for the occasion. Thus, it was due to this interest, that my professor thinks that I could establish a strong trait of a leader within the business world. 
    In addition to the discussion, Oral communication when marked for a successful leader relates to the ability of the persons specified to manage the incurred incident within the workforce. However, my professor cited this as her explanation base for making us understand the link between the subject course and the future scope that we as individuals could have in the business world. I then personally analysed the explanations given by the professor. Therefore, I visited by Uncle’s office for analysing the knowledge provided by my professor. As result of the visit, I was quite satisfied with what my professor said. The leader of an organization plays an important part of an on organization. The skills that are mostly practiced by a leader always revolve around the course events that I too seek interest as the Interpersonal skill and Oral communication. Apart from the link of the event to the business communication, I further marked the use of ‘cue cards’ that leaders were holding while they attended their meeting. As I was not allowed to take part in an official interview, I later asked by uncle about the use of cue cards and then came to know about its importance. Cue cards hold the list of key factors that are to be discussed in the meeting and it further differs from one lender to the other (Barrett 2017). I further discussed this fact during class hours and marked the further link of the skills and the business communication.   
    Usefulness of the acquired data and future planning
    The discussion I made with my professor and other classmates was beneficial for the development of my personal knowledge regarding the course events. However, by obtaining the data for each event I was able to adapt them in my future life towards professionalism. Throughout, the held discussions, there are set of questions that I faced and asked them during the course hours. The constant manner of asking questions made by professor believe for the interest that I grew for the events discussed within the class. Moreover, by acquiring more information, I further attempted to recognize the faults within my possessed interpersonal skills and communication. Thus, by changing the way of communication, I was further able to talk and make people understand the information that they need to be cleared for a situation.   
    From the above made discussion, it can be concluded that the level of knowledge that was shared during the course hours relates to Interpersonal skills and the oral communication. However, the application of Listening skill as a theory further helped me to focus on the key areas that still required to be developed. I would further like to appreciate the efforts that are made by my professor during the course hours. The practical tasks that were further assigned helped me to evaluate the knowledge that was disseminated by the professor in the class. Thus, from the course as a whole, I further able to link the need and significance of both interpersonal skill and oral communication to the business communication. Ameen, K. (2017).
