Presenting at Work: A Guide to Public Speaking in Professional Contexts

How often have you marveled at presentations by great leaders of this or a previous generation, and imagined that it was you connecting with a rapt audience hanging on every word?

In Speak Like a Leader, Christine takes you on a remarkable tour of the five habits that influential leaders – from political heavyweights, to business icons, to entertainment moguls – rely on to convey confidence, command a room, and transform their listeners.

In this session, participants will:

  • Learn the five habits of influential leaders
  • Assess which of the speaking habits they have, and those they need to develop 
  • Create a plan for improving targeted speaking skills in specific situations so they can establish new habits
  • Get recommendations on exercises and resources to continue developing speaking skills as they execute their plan and continue their leadership journey
