Program Content

You’re a leader. Now it’s time to act the part.

As a leader, it’s your job to engage, align, inspire, and move people to act. It’s called executive presence. And if you don’t have it, your career could be stuck in neutral.

The Communications and Executive Presence Program is a transformative program. It closes the gap between merit and success. You’ll learn to communicate your ideas, proposals, and vision. To influence and persuade those around you. To be the confident leader you’re meant to be.

Through team exercises and interactive presentations, you will learn about yourself and you’ll improve your ability to influence and persuade diverse audiences – whether one-on-one or before a large group of people.

With this program, you’ll go beyond motivational. You’ll be inspirational.
