Gaining Influence with the C-Suite

For many business communicators, the ability to connect with and influence members of the C-Suite is important to move business objectives forward. Whether working with a CEO, CFO, CMO or others, how you communicate matters.

In this meeting, speaker Mike Crandall will cover why we often have trouble communicating with those in the C-Suite and discuss how to use psychology to break down defense mechanisms and connect at a subconscious level with leaders in the C-Suite.
