2.        Identifying (through the lens of the C-suite) what matters most in a presentation of this type,
3.        Experiencing what it is like to deliver and receive this kind of presentation, and
4.        Sharing experiential feedback of this exercise within a safe and supportive environment

Participation is limited to 20 attendees however after the session Hays Talent Solutions will document and distribute the key learning points to all event attendees.
