  • Rewrite the Script by Going Off Script

    October 29, 2021
    In-Person Event

    Hotel Arundel Preserve

    Preserve Town Center
    7795 Arundel Mills Boulevard
    Hanover, MD 21076

    Going OFF SCRIPT doesn't come naturally to most organizational leaders. Those managing accounting firms naturally want to control the narrative, ensure ideal outcomes, script the conversations, manage the problems, predict the future, and win (negotiations, new business, market share, and more). But what if good leaders could become better leaders by doing the opposite - by letting go of the control, by going "off script" in their conversations and negotiations, by being present instead of rushing to the future, and by collaborating in authentic, empathetic ways? Success in this new world requires new mindsets, new skills and asking different questions.

    In these two exciting sessions "Are You Ready? Anticipating the Future of Work" and "Off-Script: Mastering the Art of Business Improv", Renowned speakers and Communications Strategists Kassi Rushing, APR and Peter Margaritis, CPA, CGMA, CSP will show attendees how to manage organizational change, how to employ effective communication and become an impactful leader, and the value of applied improvisation. Attendees will walk away with lots of valuable knowledge.
