APICS Tampa Bay

Eight Annual Holiday Networking Event
December 8, 2015 

Topic: Presenting Yourself Powerfully

APICS Tampa Bay, the leading association for supply chain and operations management, invites members of local professional associations, the academic community and business professionals to our Eight Annual Holiday Networking Event on December 8, 2015 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm at the DoubleTree Hotel Tampa Airport Westshore, 4500 W. Cypress Street, Tampa, FL 33607.  

Our guest speaker is Debbie Lundberg, SLRC, Principal of Presenting Powerfully. She will be speaking on the topic of Presenting Yourself Powerfully.

Presentations are a part of life, and how we present ourselves each day is a part of what people know, expect and (right or wrong) pass judgment on regularly.  This is not a session about making presentations, rather this is about how each aspect of us, our style, our language, our approach and our expressions are what becomes our “package” or our presentation of self each day.

We sometimes forget that our impression does not start when we see someone, rather it begins when they see us…via email, social media, in a meeting or one-on-one…even in the parking lot.  Have some fun with how presentation is perceived and think about ways to increase and optimize your overall presentation to yourself and others.  In addition to networking tips and tools, Presenting Yourself Powerfully take-aways are:

  • Awareness of self and impression on others
  • Choices for language and approach
  • Conscious choice of how to be remembered

People who participate in Presenting Yourself Powerfully will exit the session armed with ideas, actions and even attitudinal tools for making the “right” presentation of self for themselves!
