How to Increase Your Influence with Executives @ Bose Corporate Headquarters
Feb 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

How to Increase Your Influence with Executives

Communications people are often “cobblers’ children,” advancing everyone else’s image and cause before their own. Learn how to frame your ideas, position yourself and overcome habits you can’t even see that undermine your effectiveness.

This is a rare opportunity to participate in a live, interactive session that will give you the insights and practical tools to elevate your own ‘executive presence’ to drive more action, get faster buy in and more resources, and take your career to the next level. Come by yourself, bring your whole team, send a mentee for 90 minutes of high value professional development.

We’ll have appetizers and drinks 6:00-6:30pm for socializing before the interactive session begins. And try your luck in our raffle for copies of “All the Leader You Can Be: The Science of Achieving Extraordinary Executive Presence,” by Suzanne Bates.
