Developing Personal Presence


Crack the charisma code to achieve high impact

In this very practical, 1-day programme we introduce participants to key presence principles, and reveal how outstanding communicators ensure personal impact in a range of situations.

During the course, you will be given time to reflect on your own presence and the presence you wish to convey, and will begin to explore yourself as a personal brand. You will also discover how to make a stronger impact with those you work with – from senior managers and colleagues, to external stakeholders you need to impress. The day will include plenty of interaction and activity, as well as useful insights from social psychology.

Who is the programme for?

This day will benefit anyone who wants to have more of an impact in the workplace, especially in meetings or those looking to improve their personal credibility and authority. It’s especially useful if you’ve recently been promoted and are keen to make an impact with your new colleagues.

  • “I found the personal branding exercise tough but useful. Overall, I feel I will now be better prepared for dealing with stressful situations”

    Aislinn Ryan, Partnerships Development Officer, English Touring Opera

  • “Excellent day. I love the idea of story telling as an alternative way to get my message across with impact.”

    Rachel Boothman, Regional Care Development Advisor, Motor Neurone Disease Association
