Talking In The C Suite: What To Say and How To Say It
Presented By: Nancy Singer, Compliance-Alliance LLC

C Suite executives are busy. They have too many things to do, and not enough time to do them. When they come to work, they have their time planned out. When one of their employees requests a meeting, the employee should explain the issue succinctly, and say what the executive needs to do. People who can describe an issue in 30 seconds or less are considered assets to an organization. They get rewarded with promotions and outstanding performance reviews. Employees who are overly verbose are excluded from high visibility projects.

During a high energy, interactive session, Nancy Singer, former general counsel for a health care company, will demonstrate how to prepare and describe an issue in 30 seconds using the “What”, “So what”, “Now what” pattern. She will also explain how to respond to an executive’s  probing questions. After the formal presentation, attendees will be divided into teams, provided case studies, and be given the opportunity to apply the concepts.


  • This educational program is planned for .75 clock hours of CEU credits under the domain/knowledge area of Human Resources.
