The Course Breakdown

As part of “The First Minute” tour 2024 by award-winning author Chris Fenning, we will be hosting a workshop based on two of the topics that Chris is known for:

• The First Minute
• Smart Status Updates
If you want to get to the point, avoid rambling introductions, and have clearer communication, this workshop is ideal.

Plus, with so much time spent updating people on the status of our work, doing it well helps you to stand out as a great communicator.

Imagine if you could:

• Stop people rambling (other people and yourself!)
• Get to the point quickly and clearly
• Summarise complex topics in just a few short lines
• Never need to guess what update people what to hear about
• Give shorter updates that get fewer follow up questions
• Be recognised as a great communicator

In this workshop:
The First Minute: Attendees will learn simple yet powerful methods for starting any work conversation, meeting or email. The framing and GPS methods are taught in an interactive way using examples from the audience’s current work. Attendees leave with a tool they can immediately apply to their work and with a better understanding of how to be clear and concise.

Smart Status Updates: Attendees will learn how to summarise complex topics, how to give status updates on the topics the audience cares about, and avoid the pain of digging into the history of every problem.
If your teams regularly provide verbal or written status updates, especially to a senior audience, this talk is for them.

These sessions are practical, workshop based and guaranteed to improve the way your organisations meetings flow, by getting the results you desire!
