Speaking Up: Surviving Executive Presentations
This program is postponed
Rick Gilbert, Founder and Chairman, PowerSpeaking, Inc.; Author, Speaking Up: Surviving Executive Presentations
In middle management, you live with ambiguity, lack of control and chaos. To get things done, you must present your ideas to people up the chain, and those presentations can be brutal. Careers can come unwound in a matter of minutes if a presenter at the top level doesn’t know the rules. Based on interviews with 50 C-level executives, Gilbert will show you those rules (and more): 1) Know the people 2) Get to the point 3) Dump the PowerPoint 4) Improvise.
