HOW TO Share Information UP the Food Chain


Carl Pritchard is the principal and founder of Pritchard Management Associates. He is recognized lecturer, author, researcher, and instructor. 

As a lecturer, he is considered a leading authority on risk and communications management and presents on a variety of management topics, ranging from project essentials to the complexities of network diagramming and team motivation.

As an author and researcher, he has published articles on project management language, advances in risk management, and on the challenges of training on the Internet. His work as an instructor has taken him around the world, training with some of the leading international training organizations, as well as for private clients and the Project Management Institute®.

No matter the environment, every project manager has the opportunity to work with others at all levels in their respective organizations.  The challenge?  Fitting into that level.  In this powerful presentation, Carl Pritchard shares four key tips that enable and encourage better communication between project managers and their leadership.  He examines how we can know what they want and expect in their communication and how we have a whopping 30 seconds to establish the relationship and our mission before the communication is won or lost.  Carl provides insight on one of his favorite communications forms--storytelling--and why it can be the best or worst thing that ever happened to a communications event.
