The MPI Ohio Recognition and Appreciation Event is an annual celebration to  appreciate and recognize our members. Our membership is what makes the MPI Ohio Chapter such a successful organization. Be sure to register today, you won’t want to miss out!   

We recognize that this will be the first time many have gathered in person and we are committed to following all guidelines to keep our members safe and feeling comfortable. While we are not offering this meeting as an hybrid option due to the personal nature of recognition, we understand that many of our members still need this option and will resume hybrid offerings with our next Chapter Meeting.

How to Be Heard in a Noisy Business World
Presented by: J. Kay Coughlin
Click here for Kay's bio

Coughlin Kay headshot small_cropped2Our workplaces are noisy operations with lots of competition for limited  time, attention, and energy. When you have something important to say,  finding your voice in that crowded business culture seems to require  skill and experience that may feel out of reach. In this talk, Kay Coughlin delivers a simple technique anyone can use, any time you need to be heard. If you have something important to say but nobody seems to be listening – or if you want to help your team learn this critical skill – this talk is for you!  

This is the one simple technique you need to know to: 
• Greet your new boss for the first time in the elevator and make a great impression
• Secure a meeting with the best person to hear your message
• Pitch your project to colleagues inside your company
• Deliver the right message to the right person at the right time
• The exact steps to take to give you the best chance of delivering your message clearly
• Bonus: what to say to make sure everyone agrees on next steps

Team members and leaders alike know how critical it is to encourage  two-way communication, so you can move projects ahead and achieve goals  together. Don’t waste another day letting urgent information and ideas  get away - learn “How to be Heard in a Noisy Business World!”
