At a time when I was trying to digest and decipher deeper executives’ minds and expectations, this invite landed in my mailbox. Just in time LOL. Without fully understanding what it was all about, I forwarded the email for her approval. Luckily, I got the support from her and her boss on the same day I requested for approval, so I didn’t waste time in signing up the whole team before they change their minds hehe.

About the Topic:

Elevate your Executive Pitch!

As project managers, chances are there will be times when you need to communicate with a senior executive about some aspect of your work. Media can vary and it could be a presentation to a group of leaders or a one-on-one meeting. In these types of situations, how do you get executives to listen to you? To improve your chance of success, you need to: have a good understanding of what’s different about communicating with executives and equally as important is to adapt your communications to take those differences into account.

This session will discuss the following topics:

  • What is Executive Communications all about
  • Understand what’s different about communicating with executives
  • Leading off with an Executive
  • Relationship to Benefits/Priorities the executive cares about
  • Agenda: Why, Who, What, How, Execute
  • Adding Value to Very Important Top Officer VITO’s day
  • Managing Other Players in the Drama
  • Content fit with “Why for Who”

I have attended a session last year, also sponsored by PMI and I find it interesting and helpful. I hope I will learn a lot from this session as well.

Until then, I’m off to hibernate in the islands for the rest of the week :).
