The Inside Scoop on Presenting, Professionally and Personally:  How to Showcase Your and Your Firm's Talent and Expertise

Nobody knows presentations and interviews in the world of AEC like Susan Murphy.  This session uses the best of her extensive experience and knowledge and breaks that down for you to practice in the here and now.  Susan doesn't play games; she gives you concrete professional information and shows you how to use it immediately.

This high-spirited and fun program begins with helping you figure out what should go into your presentation or interview.  What "bait" will get that desired client or audience to respond to your ideas.  From colleagues to clients, you will learn how to communicate for results.

The session proceeds, showing you how to back up your intellectual bait with the physical skills that make you look as smart, experienced and professional as you are. You will also learn how to coach your teams.
This is not a lecture program. Susan put you to work and guide you in practicing proven skills in your own way. This is not personality dependent. You will leave this session with a new awareness of your skills as well as some newfound approaches to landing the big one. You will also have a terrific time.  Susan Murphy is hilarious.

(Lunch is provided)
