Whether you are meeting one-on-one or presenting to a large group, appearing credible and confident will significantly raise your effectiveness.

Cara Hale Alter, President of SpeechSkills, LLC will show you how the power of the “sub-textual” conversation (body language, vocal patterns, and mannerisms) can raise or lower one’s status in the workplace. Based on 20 years of research, she will outline explicit “codes of conduct” for projecting credibility, especially when the stakes are high. These behaviors are easy to implement and can help you form a skillset that can transform your career.

Discover how to…

  • Cultivate personal presence
  • Recognize/prevent the “tells” of nervousness and intimidation
  • Demonstrate composure under pressure
  • Avoid unintentional behaviors that may lower your status
  • Strike a balance between authority and approachability
