Delivering to an Executive Audience

PRICE: $265.00 Member/ $265.00 Student Member/ $365.00 Non-Member

Although more information is available, executives have less time to consume it. In today's crowded info landscape, these stakeholders are beginning to wonder whether document delivery and desk research can be purchased externally for lower cost. In this “new normal” of cost-consciousness, info pros need to highlight their value to leadership, moving beyond data retrieval to delivering easily digestible yet robust, client-ready presentations. Whether you have spent five hours or five days conducting research, finding and communicating the narrative is what creates memorable audience insights. Effective visualization techniques allow for rapid consumption of critical points while keeping length to a minimum. Through concepts, case studies, templates, and a detailed discussion of design, attendees can expect to gain practical advice on delivering high-value insights to executive decision makers.

Krystin Weseman; KC Hudson, PricewaterhouseCoopers
