“I attended Andrew’s Executive Presence workshop in Singapore and it was a unique learning, transformational and unforgettable experience! Andrew was able to effectively communicate with each member of our group, so it felt as if you had a personalized 1-to-1 coaching. His leadership skills, charismatic personality, British sense of humor and innovative way of delivering his training made it a success, and ensured that each of us felt the impact. I highly recommend this program!”

In the first 60 seconds of communication, whether in-person or in-conference, you must let your audience know two things; why they should listen and, why they should listen to you. Preparation of these two ‘Whys” will give you presence impact and influence.
It is a reality that when you stand up to speak you will be judged, so why not be judged as confident and competent?
Things you can apply NOW
- People pay attention to what is relevant to them, and so frame your information or news in a way that people are connecting it to themselves. So instead of saying, “I am here to talk about my findings”, you could say something like, “You might be interested on how these findings will impact your workflow”.
- If you have ever watched the news then you know that they always lead with the bad news first. Our brains are wired to pay attention to negative news as a survival mechanism and so put the negative up front. “The competition will take a significant piece of our market if we don’t make changes now” has much more gravitas than ‘We are doing well but should be vigilant about competition.”
- Your character speaks volumes. It includes your experience, your authenticity and the way you carry yourself. Self-leadership, which is leading from the inside out, builds your character and allows you to influence others.
- Confidence is communicated verbally and non-verbally. So before you speak remember what you are good at and remind yourself that you know your ‘stuff’.
- People will listen to you when you add value to the information you are giving, so don’t just give facts but add your perspective and viewpoint.
