Presenting to Senior Leaders

Your ability to influence, motivate or persuade your audience depends just as much on how you structure your message as the content itself, some would say it is even more important. The ability to prepare, design and deliver highly engaging presentations is a core competency for most business professionals in today’s business world.

Your audience, particularly a Senior Leadership audience, needs high-quality information on which to base business and project decisions. Your colleagues need to solve problems and chart new directions. This workshop will focus on the tools, skills and process you need to support your internal and external partners.

While we review best practices around creating the right presence using voice, body language, energy levels etc., we recommend our two day Presenting With Ease workshop for those looking to build confidence through more practice and feedback opportunities.
