Isnít that frustrating? After a long day, you come home and nobody is impressed when you talk about what you have done. Even more important than having a partner admiring you day by day, wouldnít you love to have your boss admire you? How can we reach that status? First, we need to learn how to explain our work and success in simple, management-suitable terminology. This session provides you with a handsome dictionary DBA<->Boss / Boss<->DBA. Second, I will give you a few examples on how to pimp up your success stories so that the whole company can imagine what important work you're doing. Finally, I will give you some advice how to achieve a successful and happy marriage (no, thatís not true. On that part, I wonít give any advice ;-) After attending this session, you will be able to easily describe your work and your success in an elevator conversation.
