Preparing teams to win - *hint, it's more than public speaking skills

July 14, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Virtual Meeting

With a win rate well over 85% across interviews for designers, contractors, engineers, and program managers, Meg Winch will share the changes she’s seeing in interviews and how as marketing professionals we need to prepare teams differently.

From interactive exercises to scenario-based interviews, speakers need to focus less on traditional public speaking skills and more on being nimble, organized, and strategic. Teams need to work together to respond to non-traditional formats and changing criteria. Visuals need to support rapid change in timing, format, and requirements. Critical thinking, teamwork, and creativity have never been more important. We’ll cover what winning teams are doing, highlighting lessons learned from some of most significant wins in the country. Participants will come away with tools they can apply and ideas they can implement as they reenergize their approach to preparing teams to win new work.
