A Personal Message from the Course Tutor, Mike This course came about when a client booked me for a conference for senior managers in professional services firms.
These high-powered people attend a lot of meetings and need to make their contributions to those meetings count. This is, after all, where they give the advice they are paid for, or make the sales that bring in new work.
But this time, as well as preparing carefully for the conference, I decided to record the sound, and develop a unique set of visuals to illustrate the ideas in a way that simply isn't possible in the live environment.
Who this course is for:
Senior managers and aspiring senior managers
Professional services leaders and aspiring professional services leaders
