Even the most confident and experienced presenter can find it challenging to present to C-Level audiences. Executives typically have a short attention span, expect people to get to the point and can be challenging if they don’t like what they hear. Whether your people need to present to senior people internally or externally, exceptional skills are critical. This highly practical workshop gives participants effective strategies for getting executives on-board and gaining buy-in and commitment when required. They will discover how to present their ideas confidently and concisely, deal with interruptions and challenges and provide the insight the C-Level team wants. There will be lots of opportunity for practice and insightful coaching using video recording and freeze-frame feedback, so your people leave the workshop able to get their message across more effectively.
