Mastering your Executive Presence

By building and strengthening the connection and relationship you have with your audience, you can start to address their needs and therefore have a more positive impact and influence upon them.

Through experiential learning ‘on your feet’  you will learn what works and does not work for your audience. Learn how to manage those initial stressful moments, in order to combat the normal fears of public speaking and high stakes presentations. Use your individuality to serve and enhance your message.
