A little advice….If you are giving a presentation or workshop, make it a great one! You have a golden opportunity to demonstrate your expertise and abilities to our teammates and make an impression with the XXX senior leadership team (that sit on our performance boards). Its is also a great time to gain support from the faculty for the year ahead. Please do not wait for the last minute to prepare. X and I will help you during your pre-briefs with us.
Please remember, if you are not presenting, and when you are not presenting, you should be attending. This is the first time in 7 years we are bringing all XXX together from all the regions! This is a great opportunity to meet all of XXX and learn what others are doing.
I know you will make the rest of us proud to be your teammates.
Thanks for listening,
My comments – I was, of course, planning to not put my best foot forward and was going to make the worst possible slides ever. Now that I know my entire year of performing will be judged by this presentation, I am going to put everything else aside in my life and ensure that this presentation has every possible bell, whistle and dancing bear possible to enhance my ability to get a reasonable raise.
