Workshop Summary:

When someone has a powerful presence, it’s easily noticeable, from the moment he/she enters the room.  There’s an aura that speaks to others – one that exudes confidence, credibility, and charisma.  People aren’t born this way; they develop the skills, characteristics and traits that make them “stand out” among the rest as well as enable them to motivate, persuade and influence others for ultimate success.

Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t just about how tall someone is, how they dress, or how articulately they speak that makes others sit up and take notice.  There are numerous other factors and contributors to having a powerful presence and in this workshop participants will be educated on the self-development, skills building, and awareness that enhances someone’s presence, as well provided opportunities to develop these competencies themselves.
