Executive Presence

Executive Presence

Most people have quite natural body language when they are with friends and family, however, problems arise when we are in stressful situations such as public speaking, negotiations and interviews. This workshop is for anyone who has to regularly perform as a leader –in presentations, negotiations, interviews or crucial conversations.

Each person’s body reacts differently under stress and it is important to know how you react and what you can do about it to look positive and confident. This course gives you practical tools to do a personal analysis of what your body communicates when you stand in front of an audience or in front of a camera. This workshop is for anyone who has to regularly perform as a leader –in presentations, meetings, negotiations, interviews or crucial conversations.

This course is delivered face-to-face or online in a fun and trusting environment. It provides you with tools that will help you feel more relaxed and confident when presenting in public, whether in front of an audience or online. The course is built on the foundations of biomechanics and neuropsychology, and introduces techniques used by recognised leaders, public speakers and actors.  We also look at the complex challenge of body language over telepresence.

I loved it!! We need more of these type of trainings, with extremely engaging instructor and directly applicable content.
An amazing course that helped to create awareness of body posture and set up to give the right positive impression. I will immediately apply things that we practiced.
It was entertaining, introduced concepts that were new and challenged us to break some bad habits.

A peek inside the course

In traditional workshops, even the great ones, participants have forgotten much of what they learned within a few weeks. That’s why we’ve created a stand-alone online version of the workshop that they can access forever post-course. Here is an excerpt from the online version of Executive Presence.
