Essential Skills Training: Forward-Thinking Management Reporting

8:45 AM, Thursday, March 19, 2015 - 5:00 PM, Friday, March 20, 2015 - AmCham China Conference Center

This course will be delivered in English.

In this one-day course, participants will learn how to think like a manager in order to better report to one. This session is different from a standard presentation course. It addresses the following challenges:

- How to make the presentation more valuable
- How to connect with senior managers, not just a general audience
- How to organize information and get to the point
- How to make managers feel good, instead of making yourself look good
- How to put the emphasis on achieving goals and objectives

Unlike a presentation course, the management reporting course addresses the challenges of making internal presentations within multinational companies, such as:

1) status reports
2) project updates
3) business cases (proposals)
