One of the first steps to take in order to gain management support is to present an impeccable image of yourself. This goes beyond your appearance to encompass your knowledge, expertise, and reputation. When you walk into a room of senior management personnel to initiate BCM conversations, your credibility is everything.
You can present a bulletproof image that causes management to feel highly confident in you and draws them to support your initiatives. Learn how to sell yourself to management much as you would a potential employer by building your personal brand.
There’s a lot of information online about how to build your brand -on the internet and through social media, but in this highly interactive session we’ll talk about how can you leverage this concept to gain management support for both you and your program.
