"Communication is probably the most important skill of the chief executive in the modern world", says Telstra's Andy Penn

Critical conversations -- Compelling communication -- Consummate credibility

Executive Speaking Program

Communication skills are highly valued in the internet age. Companies project their professional image through traditional business avenues and all forms of online and social media channels.

To be heard, you and your executive style of communication must stand out from the crowd. You owe it to your colleagues and your followers to raise the bar and compete at the highest level.

Speaking is a leadership role. What you say and how you say it leaves an indelible mark in the minds of those with whom you interact. What is your purpose and what is your message? How do you want your audience to perceive you and your company? How can you change the world in a positive way?

Speaking and leading with gravitas isn't easy. For starters it's difficult for many to define. You can spend a long time searching and not make any progress. This is frustrating and time consuming. While you're slowly feeling your way, the opposition is progressing quickly. The good news is that gravitas is achievable and easy to acquire with guidance. To accelerate that process, you'll require the assistance of one of the College of Public Speakers' experienced trainers who will tap into your personality, creativity and authenticity. These personal attributes are your building blocks of success. By investing in your career progression now, it's only a question of time before you fully reap the rewards. If you don't speak and lead now, you'll lose out on future opportunities and that will be a further set back. Can you afford to wait any longer?

Opportunity: The world of business is forever changing. Last year’s markets have moved on and this year’s markets are challenging. Keeping your eye on the ever evolving business and technological horizons isn’t easy. So when you see that opportunity in the market you have to communicate it effectively. You have to persuade your colleagues or stakeholders that you have a sound proposal. You’ll always get more than one big opportunity, but only the best prepared communicators steal a march on the industry.

Executive Speaking Program

Solution: The Executive Speaking Program accelerates you to the next leadership level. Not only will you understand the communication process intimately, you’ll also know how, why and when to implement the appropriate tool. Executive speaking is the route one communication channel. When great leaders speak, people listen. 

The Executive Speaking Program was created to provide support to the developing leader. Great leaders are not born they develop over time with expert direction. Our tried and tested form of evaluation is based on objective, constructive and supportive feedback. We deliver the highest standards and we expect our student leaders to bring all of their professional skills to class. We recognise our students’ skills and achievements to date and build on their foundation.

Our Executive Speaking Program process is designed to recognise your strengths, uncover your passion and release your potential.

Target Audience

Our program is designed for high level players in business, politics and communicators in all aspects of personal development.

Schedule

If you’re based in London, the program includes six face-to-face sessions of 3.5 hours. For your convenience we will come to you. The development sessions are scheduled around your diary every four to six weeks within a six month period. If we are unable to work face-to-face, arrangements can be tailored to work via Skype or via a cloud based solution.

Confidentiality

Our work with you is totally confidential. All work, discussions and strategies are your property and they remain in the classroom.

Working with an expert coach for a long period will build confidence and give you that concrete foundation to exceed your leadership expectations.

Learning Outcomes

As you accelerate your communication skills you equip yourself to lead with strength and passion—and become a powerful leader who knows how to educate, influence and inspire.

By the end of the Executive Speaking Program you will be able to:

  • Accelerate your speaking delivery skills — physical presence, vocal resonance, and distinctive language— to help you look, speak, and perform in a manner consistent with your company culture and career goals
  • Learn to use a content structure to keep you focused and on-track—with or without a speechwriter
  • Adopt strategies that will help you exude a polished, professional image and enhance your personal style
  • Master powerful techniques to understand the mindset of your audience, your customers, and your executive team, thus increasing the quality of your communications with listener-focused conversations
  • Raise the bar and model a high standard for superior presentations for your employees, peers, colleagues, and all members of the workforce.

How it works

We commence the program with an assessment of your current speaking skills (based on our psycho-linguistic form of objective, constructive and supportive feedback), identify and agree your goals, and discuss recent feedback. By observing a small number of excellent speakers we will agree a benchmark and then discuss a personal road map to achieve that standard. You will be presented with a tool kit of opportunities. We will discuss at length the type of speaker you want to become and how you want the audience to perceive you.

Though theory is incredibly valuable, you will be required to make a number of speeches throughout the sessions. Each speech will have a theme and a purpose. The speech will be evaluated to ensure that the goal was achieved. Feedback on the effectiveness of the speech is key to the speaker’s development. Speeches are videod and reviewed immediately to allow the developing speaker to identify strengths and areas for improvement. Over a period of a few hours a working synthesis develops and new goals are set. Excellence is the eventual goal. Trips to the gym are great fun, but it’s not the same as a focused session with an expert personal trainer. Your dreams are achievable, though they have to be worked for.
