Briefing Senior Executives and Government Officials




Bringing senior executives, boards, academics, analysts or government officials “up to speed” requires a set of skills that is similar – but different in important ways – to other forms of public speaking. Moreover, these communication opportunities are often critical to the future of both the organization and individual: executives who can deliver strong briefings get promoted faster than their peers.

BMLI teaches this essential skill in a workshop based on a proven methodology developed for the United States government. The BMLI program prepares executives to efficiently deliver important information to critical, time-pressed audiences.

The workshop covers:

    • The purposes and process of preparing and delivering four main types of briefings
    • How personal mannerisms, organization, content and flow in a high-level briefing differ from presentations, speeches, client pitches or informal briefings
    • How to organize information, express difficult ideas concisely, and articulate alternative courses of action
    • Briefing preparation, delivery, feedback and critique
    • Templates to aid in the preparation of briefings


    • Half day (4 hours): typically 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.


    • 2-3
