1. Speak to Persuade: Duration: 2-hour, 11:00AM - 1:00PM

Focusing on presentation content, structure, voice, and body language
that uses participants’ personal speech ideas and delivery styles in order to create change and action from the audience. PLEASE NOTE: In order to fully participate and get the best out of this workshop, you need to prepare a 3-4 minute persuasive speech (ie, "Something you'd like to change in your company, organization, or society.") NO POWERPOINT OR VISUALS NEEDED

It’s estimated over 80 million presentations are given around the world everyday. Most of them are not making the most of their opportunity, and billions are lost yearly on dull speeches with little follow through and no power. Isn’t it time we communicated better? The goal of a great presentation is not its completion, but in how much the audience remembers and acts. In both prepared and impromptu situations we need the ability to deliver more powerful audience focused speeches.


  • Increased knowledge about different ways of communicating with different audiences.

  • How to craft a speech that creates memory and action.

  • How to establish stage presence and rapport with the audience.

2. Writing for Success: Duration: 2-hour, 1:15PM - 3:15PM

Honing emails, letters, and documents into more efficient and effective
messages that are faster to read, easier to understand, and evoke change and action from the Readers. PLEASE NOTE: In order to fully participate and get the best out of this workshop, please bring 2 personal emails in medium to long length. It is best if these are emails you've written in the past, and you can create new emails if needed.

On an average day we spend at least 30% of our time writing emails, memos,and reports. Both the volume and speed of business communication is increasing rapidly, leading to massive overload on the reader side. How can we make sure what you write gets read and acted upon? The writing we share must be focused, concise, accurate and compelling, in order to keep interest. Fair or not: people will form opinions about you, and your career prospects will be affected, by way you write. Our approach provides pinpointed feedback to your specific writing needs, and gives you the ability to not only contribute more effectively from an organizational perspective, but also to better succeed in terms of your own professional development. What of you do you want people to see when they open your message?


  • Short, clear sentences that make their point

  • Documents whose key information stands out

  • Efficient email that leads to action

  • Positive language that connects with the reader

3. Influence and Advocacy: Duration: 2-hour, 3:30PM - 5:30PM

Understand our personal persuasion and communication styles as
well as others’ styles and then learning how to better communicate with others through
language tactics, questions, and listening skills. No pre-work needed.
