Topics:

 

Executive Presence – Executive presence is something that some people have, and others just don’t, but you are not sure how you know this? It’s the “special something” that makes people want to cluster around you, seek your opinion and value your input. It’s the magnetic presence that walks onto a stage, or into a room and people take instant notice. It’s the leadership key that unlocks the door of your future. In this 45 minute key-note, Angela opens the lid on Executive Presence and challenges each of us to bring our A-game. (Best audience: management teams; sales teams; anyone who is moving into leadership or occupies a leadership role; aspiring leaders)

 

Executive Communication – You can have the best and most interesting products and services. You can be 100% confident in your vision and strategic direction… but your ability to influence those you lead to believe it too is a test of your communication skills. Business people, political leaders, industry influencers and subject matter experts all too often waste the platform they are given because they stumble unknowingly into communication traps. This 45 minute keynote highlights 3 of the most common mistakes and equips audiences with practical ways to leverage their platform and speak for impact and influence. (audience – anyone with a position to influence… )

 

Being your best self – In a candid & vulnerable 45 minute key-note, Angela shares personal stories to illustrate the journey to finding, cultivating and stepping into “your best self”. Clearly structured with practical application, this interactive and fun key-note will provoke introspection and action. (Best audience: leadership & team events)

 

Personal leadership – It is comforting and easy to point fingers at what your manager is doing wrong, and how the executives need to change. It is, however, very uncomfortable to realise that you need to change too. In this 45 minute key-note Angela speaks hard truths about what leadership is and how to get started.  (Best audience: talent/ graduates / sales people / teams)
