LEADERSHIP LUNCH: Influencer - Inside and Out

SMPS Members Only

Often the difference between success and failure is our ability to influence how we are viewed. Have you ever found yourself with a smart strategy or idea that you communicate but doesn’t go anywhere? - why isn’t everyone jumping on board? Your idea might be ingenious but your presentation may fall short. We will discuss the universal tools that can be applied to achieve the impact you need to become a powerful influencer in your own right. We will touch on positive thinking, inventiveness in your communications and the art of negotiation. Barbara Agoglia, a top performing executive and entrepreneur, will facilitate an interactive exploration into the power of you and how you can put your skills to work inside your organization and out.

About the Leadership Lunch

These are one-hour lunch-time gatherings to explore the fundamentals of leadership, the skills necessary to develop our leadership abilities, and the challenges we meet as leaders – at whatever our job level. Our conversations will be peer-to-peer and might include interviews with industry leaders, viewing TED talks, reviewing articles and discussing other sources of information and insight brought to the table. The lunches are open to all members of SMPS-NY, whatever your job level. The goal of the lunches is to recognize, support and encourage the development of leadership as it manifests at every level of one’s marketing career. It’s a no-charge, brown-bag event so bring your own food and drink.
