We know how frustrating it is when a great idea goes unnoticed, a budget proposal is rejected, or funding for a potentially high-impact project is stalled for lack of support.
In our interviews with executives, they’ve told us that more than 60% of presentations made to them are failures. Why? Most business people—even mid to senior-level managers—aren’t aware of how senior executives think (hint: key business drivers); don’t speak their “language”; and certainly don’t know how to think on their feet in the midst of a dynamic, C-level dialogue.
Senior executives are impatient, bottom-line focused leaders who don’t need to be entertained and aren’t interested in the minutiae of your project or expertise. They want you to get to the point, step away from your slide deck, and be ready for a dynamic dialogue.
That said, they also want you to succeed. But you can only do that if you understand where they’re coming from. “You’ve got to understand that as an executive, you get pitched to many, many, many times,” Silicon Valley executive Matt Malden told us. “So, understanding the mindset of the executive as you’re going in to do the pitch can help you be more successful.”
Learning to succeed at presenting to executives isn’t just about getting approval on individual initiatives. It’s a must-have leadership development skill that will benefit you and your team members for the life of your careers. Not to mention the success of your business, right now. In this workshop, you’ll receive a systematic presentation framework that works. You’ll experience intensive, interactive practice sessions that help make the lessons stick. You’ll receive one-on-one coaching. And you’ll walk away with valuable reference materials.
