GEEQL Speaks! :-)

28 Oct

SQLSaturdayPortland

Hey all,

I’m honored, thrilled, and just a wee bit terrified to have been chosen to speak at the Portland SQL Saturday, November 1st.

(and I blame Julie (B | T) for this) 😉

Many of you have read the stories I’ve written here about SQL or the stories about life on my other blog.  Well, here’s your chance to actually hear some of them with the tidbits of knowledge I’ve picked up along the way and how it all applies to life at work..

I’ve learned much over the years and it seems like it’s time to start giving back. My presentation will be about communication – and a few of the ways I’ve learned about how to do it better.

On the Agenda (barring any last minute changes) will be lessons as you see below using stories, illustrations, and examples you might not expect, but do indeed get the point across, and tell a story.

So, if you’re curious – here’s the outline I’ll be working from:

Communicating: The Various Directions

  • Across to peers/other departments
  • Up to management/leadership
  • Down to Support your directs
  • Getting the right numbers to the right people
  • Using numbers effectively (Presentations)
  • Understanding your audience
  • Using those numbers to
    • Help state your case
    • Help get what you want
    • Polish your resume
  • Communicating “Oops”
  • Sometimes, Things go wrong
  • Communication during Emergencies

And last but not least – why it’s all important.

I look forward to seeing, learning, and laughing with you there.

Tom
