Evoke Research and Consulting
671 North Glebe Rd, Ste 1600
Arlington, VA, 22203
Registration is complimentary.
Networking 11:30 - 12:00.
In a perfect world every conversation would be easy, but in reality, some don’t work out the way we’d like them to. Did you ever think, "Why did I say that?" or "I should have said this." In this 45-minute, highly interactive workshop, you will be introduced to strategies to get more out of your interactions with clients, project team members, and other key stakeholders. Using fun improvisational activities and group discussion, you will practice thinking on your feet and quickly getting to the point.
Bring your own lunch.
Evoke is located at 671 N Glebe Rd, Suite #1600, Arlington, VA, in the Ballston Mall. The Mall and the garage are currently under construction. Upon your arrival, park in the Ballston Mall Public Parking Garage at the corner of N. Glebe and N. Carlin Springs. Take the elevators down to the G1. There, you will walk out of the elevator and see two doors to your right; go through them into a short hallway. Follow the signs to the new pedestrian pathway that leads you towards Glebe Rd. Turn right on the corner of Glebe Road and go straight and you will see a sign for The Ballston Office Tower. Follow the sign to 671 N. Glebe Road. When in the building, the Security Guard on the left will badge you up to the 16th floor, Suite 1600. If you have questions call 571-298-4440.

Continue towards the Ballston Mall Complex (currently under construction) via the covered pathway. The walkway will lead you to the front of the building on N.Glebe Road and you will find the Security Desk for Ballston Tower on your left.
About the Speaker
Trainer. Facilitator. Improviser. Believer. Let's start with believer. Lori believes that when people communicate clearly and confidently personal and organizational successes are possible. That's why her company, Lorim Resources, LLC creates and delivers training programs focused on critical communications skills – impromptu speaking (i.e. thinking on your feet), public speaking, team collaboration, and customer engagement (sales and customer service). Combining a successful corporate career (25 years at Verizon Communications in sales management, learning and development, and marketing communications) and a background in performing arts, her public and custom workshops integrate improvisation and role-play to create fun and meaningful learning experiences. Lori also works one-to-one to help clients raise their skill level in thinking on their feet and presenting their ideas. Lori holds a Masters of Public Administration from American University in Washington, D.C. and a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of New York at Albany. Her "other" life has been spent in the local theatre scene where she has been acting, directing, and improvising. You can see her play as a member of StageCoach Theatre's improv troupe, The StageCoach Bandits.
About the Ballston Local Community
PMIWDC is excited to announce a new Local Community: the Ballston Local Community hosted by Evoke Research and Consulting. The LC is a forum for learning, discussion and knowledge exchange. The LC sessions feature presentations by guest speakers who are PMI-recognized thought leaders, educators and Subject Matter Experts. The sessions are free and PMP attendees earn one PDU. Evoke is a management consulting firm that supports clients across the Federal government.
Please note: upon entering the Ballston Office Tower, you will be required to sign in three separate times. First with the Ballston Tower security desk where they may ask for your identification. Second with Evoke’s front desk personnel. Then one final time for PMI-WDC when you enter Evoke’s main conference room to receive PDU credits. We understand this can be a lengthy process, but it is per Ballston Office Tower and Evoke’s policies
