Speaker Biography:

Jamie is beyond her "passionate BA" title and truly embodies business analysis and adding value to those around her everyday. An accomplished speaker and trainer, she enjoys sharing with others ways to improve their analysis skill sets, unique ways to look at the world and how to be more accomplished with measurable results. You can find her speaking around North America on topics on project management, business analysis, process improvement, change management and data governance. She is an accomplished author with published courses on LinkedIn and Pluralsight. When she's not collaborating with her business partners, you can find her collaborating with her friends and family on the Hawaiian waters on a surfboard.


“Time is short” is an understatement! When you have a precious few seconds to understand what the other person needs (not just wants!) and must then even faster process the request and respond, any questions you ask must be on point and direct towards accomplishing the goal. When your stakeholder hands something over to you, do you hesitate to ask questions because you think it makes you look stupid? Are you really sure that you know what he or she is asking for? Have you ever thought you were doing the right thing to find out you wasted all kinds of time? Asking the right question is far better for your reputation, for your time management, and for you than asking no questions or asking the wrong question. That makes sense of course, but how do you learn to ask the right questions? In this session Jamie will walk through how to ask good questions that drive to giving you everything you need to know to quickly be effective in almost any situations. No longer do you need to leave meetings more confused than when you entered the room! Let’s eliminate the back-and-forth between a request and getting the answer from your boss! Could you imagine getting rid of half of your phone call follow-ups or a third of your email inquiries just because we changed how we asked our questions? Even better – we have more time to get things done! We’ll have some fun with real-world application and examples to help you help others! What better group than to practice with other administrative professionals so you can take these tips right back to the office and use them! Who knows, you might even try it on your friends and family?
