Presence can be a difficult quality to define, but we always know it when we see it. People with presence hold our attention. They seem to project a sense of ease, poise and self-assurance. They often have the capacity to change hearts and minds.

This workshop attempts to defy the myth that people with presence are born and not made. During this interactive session we will explore techniques that enhance the ability to connect with others emotionally and cognitively. It will suggest that our power as leaders and presenters does not always come from forcefulness or assertiveness, but from openness, presentness and the acknowledgment of our uniqueness.
