Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 8th and 9th, 2011.
I lead. For fun.
I'm an international speaker, coach, and trainer who's helped grow businesses from break even to beyond $100M. Over the past 15 years I've led businesses & programs using Agile & Waterfall in both software and hardware, B2B and B2C. Currently, I'm working with teams running Kanban and Scrum while advancing Lean practices. I love helping organizations bring order out of chaos, turning strategies into results.
<p>Who do you know who might know someone who could <b>SEE</b> a benefit in <b>CLEARLY</b> sharing their ideas? Or, do you simply wish you could persuade stormtroopers these are not the 'droids they're looking for?</p>
<p>Would you like to influence how others perceive you in interviews, when networking or working in pairs and teams? In this interactive (that means audience participation!) session we’ll cover:</p>
<li>* Why this works</li>
<li>* Simple, verbal techniques to build rapport fast</li>
<li>* Practice on how to build and break rapport (helpful to keep discussions concise!)</li>
Come learn some simple, yet subtle techniques to shift communication effectiveness by a factor of 5 or more. And while participants are advised away from initial use with stormtroopers, VCs, angels, executives and clients <b>are</b> fair game.
