Essential Skills Training: Forward-Thinking Management Reporting

8:45 AM, Wednesday, June 24, 2015 - 5:00 PM, Thursday, June 25, 2015 - AmCham China Conference Center

Forward-Thinking Management Reporting is a two-day course delivered in English that improves participants’ presentation effectiveness through stronger connection with management. We will focus on the preparation: thinking strategically to connect, and organizing logically to connect. It aims to change the mindset of the presenters, from thinking on an operational level to a strategic one, and from focusing on details to focusing on department goals and company strategies.

Points of Differentiation
Presentation courses:
• How to make the presentation more powerful
• How to speak in the public
• How to design PPT slides

Forward-Thinking Management Reporting Course:
• How to make the presentation more valuable
• How to connect with senior managers
• How to organize information and get to the point
• How to make your managers feel good

Unlike traditional courses that deal with generic presentations, 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)
