Leading Influential Conversations

How many times have you had the best data, clear real-world examples, yet your pitch to decision makers - maybe even the C-suite lands flat. They didn't understand, didn't see the ROI, they weren't moved by your presentation?

This is very common for leaders of all types in the Security & Risk industries. We often have a message that is unpopular, not inspiring. Tim Wenzel will describe what thought leadership is and how to engage influentially within your organization. He will discuss the importance of combining your presence, your brand, and your story to lead executives and other stakeholders down a logical thought path and bring them to a well informed decision point, so the business can effectively decide how to manage its risk.
