In leadership, great communication skill is the most important predictor of success in influencing people, gaining alignment, and driving results. Speaking is often thought of art and science, and that may be true, but it is also not a natural born skill. For nearly two decades we’ve been teaching top leaders in global companies the art of communicating in a powerful way with their audiences. Experienced speakers learn to raise their game, stand on a bigger stage, tell the story, make the business case, persuade, influence and inspire. They do this in a collegial, welcoming environment with other leaders who want to learn how to quickly prepare and deliver an exceptional presentation.
Whether you’re making a presentation to the board or executive leadership, briefing your peers, speaking to shareholders or investors, or meeting with your team, clients or prospects, this course shows you how to talk about big ideas, tell the story, and leave a positive lasting impression. Speak Like a CEO is designed for leaders who want to develop a great deal of confidence on stage that demonstrates they are ready for the next level of leadership.
