An interactive online zoom call on January 30th at 07:00 pm Eastern Time
Why is having great communication skills a ‘game changer’ for any Finance or Accounting professional?
85% of our success is driven by our communication skills as per The Dale Carnegie Institute.
Warren Buffett famously credits his enrollment in a public speaking course at the Dale Carnegie institute as one of the most important decisions in his life.
Finance and Accounting professionals often have tremendous technical skills in their field of expertise. Unfortunately, they often have underdeveloped soft skills and are unable to effectively influence business partners. This is where the power of storytelling can come in. All Finance/Accounting professionals can become great communicators if they use a framework and deliberate practice.
In this interactive talk, Ron Monteiro a Finance professional like all of you will share his storytelling journey (I was extremely shy and had underdeveloped soft skills), process, tips, and tools to help anyone become a proficient storyteller. He will explain how he transformed himself from the typical shy and introverted accountant with underdeveloped soft skills into a powerful communicator through story telling.
His storytelling process is a three-pronged approach to help you ACE your presentation, meeting, or conversation.
A – Audience – Understand and Cater to your audience.
C – Content – Create insightful and interesting content that is suited to your audience.
E – Execution – Learn how to develop great body language and use your voice as a powerful tool in your communication.
This process can be applied to all communication including very technical Finance/Accounting meetings or presentations such as a Balance Sheet review.
Ron Monteiro, CPA, CMA is the founder of KICT Inc (a company that is focused on helping Finance/Accounting individuals and teams maximize their potential). Ron also facilitates leadership training for Clear Concept Inc. and does keynote speaking and teaching at universities domestically and internationally.
