Become a Multi-professional Communication Hub
In his role as Product Manager in a multinational enterprise Fernando had to communicate with top executives, lawyers, accountants, salespeople, economists and different professionals. He learned to translate technology to all audiences and became a multi-professional communication hub.
In order to become a multi-professional communication hub Fernando recommends:
- Find the background a specific audience has.
- When speaking to business decision makers, speak to them using financial indicators: EBITDA, capex, opex. Share information slowly and only when they’re comfortable with what you said, give them more detail.
- Use storytelling to create in people an emotional connection with your product.
