Helping leaders find and tell their stories...

The personal voice of a leader is an essential element in the success of ideas. The most effective leaders leverage their voice as a key strategic tool and strive to align their story with the vision and goals of the organization. Without this, even the best companies and most innovative ideas fall short.

We help leaders develop and execute high-level oral communication that turns great ideas into results.

PRESENTATION SKILLS

Public speaking is the most preferred method of communicating information to a large group of people today.

Our goal is to change business presentations from tedious, uncomfortable situations into opportunities for managers and executives to showcase their passion, expertise and competence.

We do not produce "Barbie and Ken Doll" spokespeople. Rather we emphasize the importance of content, clarity of expression, brevity, organization, audience analysis and dynamic, poised communication skills that inspire people to action.

MEDIA TRAINING

Effectively communicating your story and your message to the public via the media is as critical a skill as it is complex. Quite frankly, the stakes are high and training is essential.

Our media training begins with an indepth analysis of the brand image and how to best align your personal voice with the message and vision. We then work to execute the image through compelling, media friendly content and mediagenic delivery.

The goal is to leverage the power of the media to your advantage so your vision can be communicated accurately to a wider audience.

EXECUTIVE PRESENCE

Exuding confidence, credibility and professionalism is widely seen as the most important communications need in executives.

The key to this is the ability to perform "in-the-moment", where thoughtful, informed and polished statements are required immediately in response to questions and requests for information, opinions and advice

Our executive presence program was designed to specifically target these areas and help executives develop the ability to deliver clear, focused and compelling messages in-the-moment.
