Including an eBook for Personal and Professional Growth

Tools to close gaps, reduce leakages, identify opportunities and gain commitment across silos to win and retain your customers

  • Develop how your team speaks the language of business outside your specialty for better results across functions.
  • To progress in their career, wider business acumen and people skills become as vital to success, if not more so, than their technical know-how.

WHO from your team will find this beneficial?

They can answer yes to the WHY´s below. You are likely to be recognised as a talent in Revenue optimization, Commercial, Sales, Marketing, Distribution or Operations.


  • The need to communicate specialist knowledge comfortably
  • The need to understand (and make clear to others) what influences business
  • The need to work more effectively across silos to pick up trends and gain commitment
  • They want to be recognised and be ready for additional leadership
  • They want to engage and communicate with empathy
  • They want to manage their development

You can choose to engage with this resource through self-study or participate in a digital program facilitated by HSMAI Europe’s executive coaches. The workshop programs span over 5 weeks, with a weekly commitment of 1.5 hours and HSMAI Europe members can join at no cost.
