What elements help a speaker compel audiences to listen and act? This master class identifies and unpacks the particular skills that convey presence, offering participants concrete tools and recommended strategies to help them connect with audiences in ways that deepen relationships and deliver lasting impressions. It covers what’s required to show up authentically, overcome reliance on written script, craft and integrate stories, and master the aspects of vocal and physical delivery that support all of the above.
The eight-week format is designed to give participants the opportunity to adapt and apply tried and true tools and strategies to their own communication contexts. The master class includes video-recording and customized feedback to cement learning, and the group size is limited to optimize individual feedback.

You’ll leave this master class with: 

✅  Knowledge of how to strategically frame your presentation so your audience is engaged right from the start and compelled to act at the end;

✅  An understanding of strategic communication principles that enable you to tailor your content for specific audiences;

✅  Tools to enhance your vocal delivery and body language;

✅  An appreciation of why and how to incorporate stories into any presentation, including strategies to help you identify, hone and deliver them;

✅  Rehearsal strategies to support you in avoiding reliance on reading a script; and

✅  Perceptive and constructive feedback on how to build on your existing strengths to become even more dynamic and effective.
