Executive Presence and Impact Workshop with Peter Kingston

Stephenson Mansell Group
Suite 1, 2/3 Shore, 13 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay, NSW 2000


“When people are forming an impression of you, what you say is only 7% of what people come away with.”
Deborah Gruenfeld, Stanford Graduate School of Business

As a successful business leader, you know that your job is more than just having great ideas – it’s persuading people to join you in your vision. To take them on the journey; to communicate with impact.

Not being heard at meetings, for example, or not engaging effectively with stakeholders, or not speaking persuasively to senior management are some of the most common barriers to career success.

The good news is that such deficits can be remedied. Techniques and skills to connect with your audience with meaning and purpose can be learned and adopted as leadership behaviours.

Designed for corporate influencers, this insightful and interactive one-day workshop will help you to enhance your influencing and communication skills. It’s not just about presentation skills, it provides you with insight and performance techniques to suit your development goal. To develop confidence, executive presence, to be more influential.

As an expert in stage performance, with extensive executive coaching experience, your facilitator Peter Kingston is uniquely qualified to spot small changes for you to make for a big impact, and help you learn how to put adjustments and skills into practice.
