At some point in your career, probably many, you will be called upon to give a presentation.
If you need to inform, inspire or influence your team, your success or failure will be determined in large part by your ability to speak in public. Whether in person or using visual conferencing, it is one of the most critical skills for leaders.
Our goal is to change business presentations from tedious, uncomfortable situations into opportunities for managers and executives to showcase their passion, expertise and competence.
We do not produce “Barbie and Ken Doll” spokespeople. Rather we help you develop your authentic voice, create a true connection with your audience and enable you to present with the impact and confidence that inspires people to action.
Exuding confidence, credibility and professionalism is widely seen as the most important communications need in executives.
The key to this is the ability to perform “in-the-moment”, where thoughtful, informed and polished statements are required immediately in response to questions and requests for information, opinions and advice.
Our executive presence program was designed to specifically target these areas and help executives develop the ability to deliver clear, focused and compelling messages in-the-moment.
Effectively communicating your story and your message to the public via the media is as critical a skill as it is complex. Quite frankly, the stakes are high and training is essential.
Our media training begins with an in-depth analysis of the brand image and how to best align your personal voice with the message and vision. We then work to execute the image through compelling, media friendly content and mediagenic delivery.
The goal is to leverage the power of the media to your advantage so your vision can be communicated accurately to a wider audience.
