Capacity: 30

Target audience: Technical Women who regularly attend technical meetings [Working Groups] and would like to develop and “command their presence” in high pressure meetings. 

Workshop Background 
The Command Presence Workshop (CPW) has been recognized by Anita Borg Institute and Harvard Business Review. It is intended to teach participants how to handle “senior-level high pressure meetings”. The majority of the workshop is a task-force convened to address a simulated, but very realistic crisis event. In the class, each participant assumes a role, and is given about 30minutes to prepare 1-2 slides. Once the class has prepared, the simulation begins. There is a role-play simulations. It is not uncommon to hear occasional “gasps” of disbelief from the participants. The workshop participants will thus experience rapid-fire questioning, interruption, and other situations that occur in senior-level meetings, but in a safe environment conducive to learning techniques for handling such situations.
