With Dirk Schlimm

Dirk Schlimm is an expert on executive effectiveness, leadership, and collaboration in organizations and the author of “Influencing Powerful People” (McGraw-Hill, New York, and authorized Chinese edition). He has worked with family-owned businesses in a variety of industries as an executive, board member and consultant. At the ICD/Rotman Directors Education Program Dirk teaches a session on “Difficult Conversations in the Boardroom” which is delivered at business schools across Canada 

Here is what Jim Collins, author of Good to Great says about Dirk: “I’ve known Dirk Schlimm for years, and observed with admiration his ability to work effectively with powerful people while sustaining his own core values. His topic is important, and his experience has given him a deep practical wisdom.

This keynote session explores how to build strong working relationships with powerful people, win their confidence, and navigate the inevitable crisis:

  • Understanding founders and other powerful people and what drives them
  • Making your ideas count and persevering through conflict
