Communicating UP!
11 November | 7:00 a.m.–8:00 a.m. PST (UTC-8) | 1 PDU/.1 CEU
Instructor: Carl Pritchard

All too often, we establish communications styles and processes that seem to be "one size fits all." Nothing could be further from the truth. In dealing with management, steering committees, and other critical project stakeholders, while the messages must be consistent, the approaches we use, the data sets we share, and the styles we deploy need to be adaptive in terms of the audiences and stakeholders addressed. In this hands-on day, you'll get the opportunity to learn how to distill your message down to its core elements, create a common vision, and engage an audience quickly and effectively.
