Developing Personal Presence


Boost your confidence, credibility, and personal authority

In this very practical, 1-day programme we introduce you 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.

All our public training is scheduled when enough demand is there, so please register your interest here, and we'll let you know as soon as a new date is set.
Yes, and also face to face (as soon as it is safe to do so). It's equally suitable for both options. For more information on the differences between online and face to face training, as well as our social distancing guidelines, visit our Learning and Development page.
If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options.

These include:
  • your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in one full day, two half-day sessions or four bitesize sessions over separate days.
  • tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
  • self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online or call 020 7978 1516 to speak to one of our experienced consultants.
