Think of the times when you have to collaborate with business units, cross-departmental teams, and other functions. Too often complex ideas and jargon can impact cross-departmental communication and collaboration effectiveness and efficiency. In this session, I will share practical tools you can implement to explain, communicate, and include non-technical team members in a technical conversation. You will learn how to quickly and effectively communicate complex ideas through stories, data, and experiences for a more productive conversation.

You will learn:

  • Tools to craft powerful, memorable, relatable storytelling to convey complex ideas
  • How to present data and statistics in a way that conveys ideas clearly
  • Insight into the power of jargon and when communication short cuts can be a benefit and a detriment in collaboration
