Convey Complex Concepts

SpeakersPhotosAgendaDiscussions
About this Event

Communicating complex tech problems to non-tech people effectively has been a key challenge to many engineering leaders, across all levels. But it's not that easy to find an effective solution.

At this event, we will partner with Own The Room to help engineering leaders tackle this challenge.

Own The Room develops world-class communicators at the leadership level and equips next-gen performers to lead.

I attended their two-day training recently, and was shocked by the effectiveness of the tools and techniques they taught, as well as the way they taught them. I hope you will experience the same.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • This event will focus on C3: Convey Complex Concepts, a training tailored specifically for teams and individuals who present data, analytics and research.

  • Coaches help participants build a toolkit of approaches, techniques, and mindsets that can help any professional—no matter how technically-oriented—deliver statistics, jargon, and all types of knowledge more clearly, so it sticks.

  • The training uses fun, interactive exercises that allow participants to immediately practice and build upon techniques to help listeners better understand and remember their content.
