Managing a Virtual Proposals Team

Saturday, May 28, 2016 | 9:40 AM - 10:40 AM | Back Bay AB

Christian Figenschou
This presentation draws from the presenter’s experience managing a proposals team with a global mandate for an African bank. Topics covered include an effective approach to managing direct reports using flexible working arrangements and output-based management, and managing ad hoc deal teams with an emphasis on influence vs. authority, leadership, agreements, logistics of cross-border proposal management, communications and clarity, and building relationships remotely. The presenter will also discuss managing perceptions when working virtually in a traditional working environment.
