Wednesday - October 22, 2014

How do you remain calm, focused, and centered amidst chaos around you? How do you create connections with people? Do you think before you speak? If you want improvement in these areas, this 1-day seminar, can help you.

In Cynthia Burnham's "Owning the Room" Seminar, she will share tips for how to maintain the powerful leadership presence you have from within, how to master nerves, and even make adrenaline your friend!

APICS SFV is excited to bring this topic to all fields of interest. The October 22 seminar will help you directly in your professional (and personal!) life by:

  • allowing you to interview with a more solid presence
  • enabling you to be a more confident interviewee
  • being better poised sell your ideas internally - to your management, peers, and members of your team
  • understanding a more focused collaboration with your customers and vendors alike
  • leading and managing meetings - anywhere from day-to-day to executive status updates - like a star!

This whole day workshop will expand on the skills presented in the September Professional Development Meeting - a must attend event to help you leverage an important learnable skill.

Here's a sneak preview.   Details.
