A recent Portland Development Commission (PDC) survey of the Portland technology community found that the single greatest need is for more effective mentoring opportunities. We are responding to this need by adapting our already successful C-level six-month coaching program – now focused exclusively on CEOs and CIOs. In this three-hour preview session, you will get a taste of the full six-month program while experiencing a highly effective and structured approach to executive and peer coaching.

You will walk away from this first session having new insights into how you work with your direct reports and you will have a stronger sense of areas you’d like to improve in, related to your ongoing work as a CEO or CIO. We do this through illuminating blind spots, building up weak areas, and amplifying your strengths.

Find out if “CEO or CIO Group Coaching” is right for you, and walk out with new tools in this dynamic stand-alone session for coaching your team and helping them coach their direct reports.

SIM-Portland January Meeting: "Influence, Persuasion and Negotiation"
University Club of Portland

Martin gives you stories, studies, humor and data from the stage that teach and inspire attendees to look at influence, persuasion and negotiation in a very different way. He mastered methods for determining objective probabilities with the best strategies for success in transactions and disputes needed in the information economy. But this was not enough. His research then focused on tempering this objective approach with understanding human behavior and brain function. The result: we do well when we know our choices in how we communicate our needs to the world.

About the Speaker
Martin Medeiros began his career supporting SABRE Technology Group for American Airlines' flight reservation system. After obtaining his law degree he was recognized by his client, Ryder, with the RISE Award for information systems excellence. As a negotiation leader in thousands of deals and disputes over the last 25 years, information technology remains his passion. Martin authored three books on influence, persuasion, negotiation and technology.

Speaking and offering workshops to start-ups, Fortune 500 companies, Am Law 100 firms, trade associations, strategic investment associations, universities, non-profits, governments and healthcare providers, Martin also presented to hundreds of attorneys as: a Board Member of the Oregon Law Institute at Lewis and Clark College of Law, a speaker for the Washington State Bar Corporate Counsel Section, and as Chair of the Technology Law Section of the Oregon State Bar. Martin's skill as a keynote speaker and teacher were forged on the anvil of his unique experiences, experiences attendees benefit from by leaving his talks with immediately actionable takeaways.
