For who

Middle management and experts

As people manager, functional manager or coordinator, a large part of your job is to communicate and organize the cooperation between people, across teams or business units. From time to time you are also requested to make a brief, stressful presentation to the top management. You want to gain confidence, prepare faster and make more impact: you want your message to capture attention, be understood and acted upon. You also want to influence and speak in a way that will create engagement even when there is opposition or conflict.

This training has also proven to help significantly those who are requested to share their knowledge and represent their company with presentations in industry fairs and congress, or to talk to the general public in formats such as TED-style 18-minute motivational speech, or short marketing film clips.
