Executive Presence, Public Speaking and Presentation Skills


In today’s corporate world, it is not enough to simply be good at what you do. Each and every person, no matter what profession, needs to exude confidence, “executive presence,” maximize their brand, communicate effectively in all relationships and, at the same time, be their authentic self in order to “seal the deal.” However, we are not born knowing how to have “presence”, nor how to communicate clearly. These are learned skills. Our coaches teach you practical and proven tips and techniques that can be implemented immediately. Participants will hone existing skills and develop new skills, creating their own “personal toolbox.” This toolbox will help you learn how to command a room with presence and confidence, how to use your nonverbal and verbal skills to your advantage, how to effectively convey any message in any communication situation resulting in more effective, powerful, succinct messaging and engagement through presentations, keynote addresses, speeches and teleconferences. This workshop creates better leaders who perform at a higher level for sustainable, long-term.

Leadership Today


Simply having the responsibilities of a leader doesn’t necessarily make a person an effective leader. No one is born knowing how to be a leader. We learn how to be a leader. A great leader runs more than a successful business. A great leader is a charismatic example of their company’s culture and vision. Without that strong leadership, many otherwise good businesses fail. Understanding the characteristics of strong leaders and cultivating those hard and soft leadership skills is necessary in today’s business climate. This workshop/seminar* which offers an interactive presentation and discussion on leadership today, the differences between management and leadership, how to communicate and connect on an individual level and inspire people to move from “I” to “we,” how to build trust by ensuring your verbal communication and your non-verbal actions reinforce each other.

*The number of participants determines whether it is a workshop or a seminar.

Networking Like A Pro


We all know networking is an essential to advancing your career — “it’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know,” — but it’s rarely at the top of our priority list. All those awkward conversations and “small talk.” It can feel like a chore, especially if you are trying to “sell” yourself or your company. Networking is NOT selling, in fact, it is the opposite. It’s about building relationships and being a resource, internally AND externally. In this highly dynamic seminar, our coaches take you through their “Pre-Game, Game-Time, and Post-Game” approach to networking with practical tips and techniques that can easily and immediately be implemented — whether an introvert or extrovert — of what to do before, during and after a networking event.

“What do you do?” – Crafting the Perfect “Elevator Pitch/Connection”


No matter what profession, nor position, everyone needs to be able to answer the question, “tell me what you do?” Often, the standard answer is sharing your title and the company for whom you work, but that doesn’t really help you get to truly know someone or whether or not you want to even forge a relationship. Having the perfect elevator pitch is about having a response that elicits engagement, a connection with someone. It is NOT a sales pitch, but rather an opportunity to develop new relationships, attract resources, and communicate with confidence who you are and what you do. Among the topics covered: Why an elevator pitch/connection is invaluable today, How to create an elevator pitch/connection that is captivating, engaging, and authentic, leaving those you speak with wanting to know more.
