Getting to Yes - Planning Compelling Presentations

Getting to Yes - Planning Compelling Presentations

Are you interested in implementing or expanding your department’s use of new technology? How do you present this to management, especially when you are not the decision-maker? How do you persuade reluctant peers? Effective auditors are able to communicate with tact, conviction and clarity. But what do you need to do when dealing with a particularly challenging audience, e.g., penny-pinchers, people-pleasers, competitive people or skeptics?

During this informative and engaging session, Ann M. Butera, CRP and President of The Whole Person Project, Inc., will describe ways to leverage time-tested strategies to hone your ability to deliver clear, compelling messages like a pro.

After this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Profile penny-pinchers, people-pleasers, competitors and skeptics during in-person and telephone meetings
  • Use a six-step model for planning compelling presentations for them
  • Communicate your suggestions in a way that increases each type’s willingness to take action
  • Conduct effective meetings with them that achieve results
  • Respond to each type’s questions – particularly the unexpected ones.
