Take Your ‘A Game’ to the C-Suite
You may know your way around information, but do you know your way around the C-suite? If you don’t (or if you do but want to get better at it), be sure to attend Scott Leeb’s presentation, “Be Bold, Be Brief, and Be Gone: Secrets on How to Successfully Navigate the C-Suite,” at the SLA 2015 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO.
Scott, an engagement director at a management consulting and system integration firm, is responsible for expanding the knowledge management capabilities of blue-chip corporations, foreign government entities, and leading trade associations and academic institutions. Prior to taking his current job, Scott created and managed the knowledge management function at the Rockefeller Foundation and the global business intelligence programs at Prudential Retirement, the McGraw-Hill Companies, KPMG, and Ingram Micro (a Fortune 100 technology firm).
“Success in the C-suite is not easy,” he says. “In my view, we are our own worst enemies. Our DNA as information professionals is our biggest roadblock. We take pride in how we collect information, synthesize it, analyze it and turn it into intelligence. What we fail to recognize is that the executive has no interest in any of that—only in what we can provide to help him or her make smarter decisions.”
