Does Your Senior Executive Need Some Polish?
Positive Communications' Executive Presentation Training helps senior leaders in business, government, and the nonprofit sector refine and polish their skills. We are skilled at giving frank advice to top executives about their communications approach, abilities and speaking style. We can provide a fresh perspective and deliver it in a constructive, non-challenging way.
We work with the internal communications team to develop a plan for working with the high level executive. The first step is the pre-training analysis of the executive's speaking style. Prior to any scheduled training we review video clips of speeches, speech texts, and background materials to assess needs, establish goals, and develop the training plan. This allows us to hit the ground running so we maximize the time with the executive.
