Any given gesture — a nod, a point of the finger — unconsciously communicates powerful ideas and feelings that have tangible consequences. Top executives are generally proficient in their ability to interact with others, but the stakes are raised during high-level negotiations, reporting to the board, inspiring and empowering senior managers or dealing with tricky internal matters.

Join body language expert Chris Ulrich as he shares:

  • Why every movement and action is magnified in high-level situations
  • Tools and techniques to build rapport quickly

Be ready to exchange views about:

  • Effectively leveraging data to articulate value and guide strategy for disparate stakeholders
  • Creating and communicating a governance model to capture instant, data-driven insight
  • Developing the right teams, talent, tools and processes to move your data/analytics program forward

For today’s CIO, a combination of business, technology and organizational transformation is required to fully capture the opportunities of digital.

  • Applying process and leadership prior to moving forward with shiny-new technologies in the hype cycle
  • Organizing strategic governance from siloed sponsorship to capability “horizontals,” to capture value from the one-to-many capabilities of modern technology platforms

  • Layering innovation into the core of how work is executed, instead of as a standalone function
