Communicating With Impact

  • Voice: how to use your voice in a full-bodied, impactful way, how to project your voice, how to use your breathing to support your voice, enunciation. Focus on speed, rhythm, intonation.
  • Body language: high/low-power poses, anchoring, occupying space.
  • Contents: techniques to develop your credibility and impact, how to convey competence, authority, charisma and power through word choice and message construction.
  • Elevator pitch: how to introduce yourself with maximum impact in 30-60 seconds.


We all have examples in mind of men and women who enthrall their audience. You might think that their ease of expression is innate but natural authority owes nothing to chance: these charismatic people apply easy-to-learn techniques. A good balance between theory and practice allows for quick and concrete assimilation of the tools and best practices. Participants will improve at an impressive pace and benefit from expert personalized coaching.
