"We need an IT person in this strategy session!” Have you ever heard those words before? Probably not – and therein lies the problem. You are excellent at the technical side of work, but when it comes to the people, relationship and strategy side of work your influence falters like an unreliable wireless network.

That’s why you need to attend The Strategic Technologist presentation for SIM on November 15, 2012. By attending this session you will learn how to:

  1. Build a reputation as a valued business partner
  2. Receive invitations to the executive level decision making table
  3. Optimize your contribution to strategy development and implementation
  4. Enhance your ability to communicate in pragmatic business terms rather than in technical terms
  5. Leverage your technical strengths in order to create accelerated business value

Attending The Strategic Technologist is for IT professionals who are serious about their professional development and are willing to grow at an accelerated level. Watch a video invitation from our presenter.
