As a CEO or Senior Executive, there will be many moments in your career where your success will be determined, at least in part, by your presentation skills. Whether you’re interviewing for a new job, trying to close a big deal, speaking at a conference or inspiring your team, your vocal, verbal and non-verbal skill could make all the difference.

Melanie took our members through several exercises to pinpoint individual areas of improvement as well as tips that covered several areas of a presentation.
