PMI Nashville January 2022 Luncheon Webinar – Public Speaking & Storytelling for Project Managers

January 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

About Event/Objectives

  • Speaker: Rashid N. Kapadia, DTM, PMP
  • Description
    • Project Managers need to be good speakers. Since communication is such an important part of project management, having good speaking ability projects a professional image. As project managers, we often speak to groups of all sizes in person, and virtually. This session will help you consider how you can sharpen your skills and how doing so will enhance your career. Consider:
      • Professional and technical expertise can open a vast number of doors—in early career
      • Expertise in public speaking and storytelling can open more elusive doors—right away, and in late career
      • An unseen (and significant) career danger for rising project managers is one of mid-career stagnation.
      • Acquiring non-technical expertise becomes increasingly essential. Becoming an expert public speaker and storyteller is an excellent option.
    • Key Takeaways:
      • Public Speaking and Storytelling can be used to acknowledge and embrace the power of EMOTIONS.
      • The FEAR of Public Speaking is not sensibly understood.
      • Public Speaking and Storytelling are CONNECTION enablers.
  • Objectives
    • From this session, participants will be able to:
      • Appreciate anew the transformative power of public speaking and storytelling.
      • Recognize public speaking and storytelling as a distinguishing competence—one that leaders throughout history have embraced.
      • Renew your commitment to acquiring expertise in public speaking, storytelling, and even great oratory.
      • Take the next steps to acquire expertise in public speaking and storytelling.
