From: Angela Sinickas

Dear Colleague:

 “I wish I had a seat at the table.” That’s what I hear communicators say everywhere I go.

Having wished the same thing, and achieved it in several jobs with titles ranging from editor to VP, I learned a lot of lessons by trial and error. I’d like to share those lessons with you so you can consistently contribute to your organization’s future proactively—regardless of your official job title—as soon as you return to work after this workshop.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll learn:

     How to talk about communication in the same business terms your organization’s executives use in discussing other business processes.

     How to estimate the likely ROI from proposed campaigns.

     How to anticipate opportunities for communication to solve emerging business problems, so you’ll be ready with your solutions when executives are just beginning to see that there’s a problem.

     How to use new techniques for building rapport with executives.

     How to break through impasses when you disagree with them on the best communication approaches for solving problems.

Not only will you learn about these skills, but you’ll have a chance to practice them and apply them to real-life situations you’re facing in your company today.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Best regards,

Angela D. Sinickas
President, Sinickas Communications, Inc.
