Speaking the C-Suite Language: Navigating Buy-in for Security from Decision Makers



Sometimes the hardest conversation to have about physical security isn’t within your own team, it’s with high-level execs in the C-suite who have the ultimate say and buying power. How do you break through to them and convince decision-makers that an investment is needed?

In this webinar, representatives of key C-suite stakeholders discuss how physical security leaders can navigate buy-in for security.

Viewers will walk away with a better sense of how the C-suite makes decisions, the kind of data that can be presented to tip the scale, and a broader understanding of how to make the best impression in the C-level meeting.

Our team of experts discuss:

  • How physical security leaders can “speak the language” of decision-makers
Group 12637
  • How to be prepared for and combat objections
Group 12637
  • Tips for articulating what security teams need and why
