Developing Your Executive Voice

With the general workplace being comprised of many different generations that have unique interpersonal skills, effective communication is an essential skillset for all employees including executives and upper management.

Did you know that communication is the number one complaint that employees have when surveyed about their organization?

In today’s corporate world there are many opportunities to efficiently reach every generation through practical communication. With over 20 years of invaluable knowledge, Ritchie Public Speaking, has partnered with the Boone Chamber of Commerce to deliver a comprehensive workshop that helps executives tackle some of the fundamental aspects of effective communication.

Objectives

During this half-day workshop, participants will focus on these key topics:

  • Learn How to Analyze Your Audience : You will learn how to consider all important factors defining the makeup and demographic characteristics of your audience. There are many pertinent details that define human population characteristics which will affect how well your presentation is absorbed by listeners. Analyzing your audience properly is one of the fundamental aspects in preparing to present to the public.

  • Overcome Anxiety and Confidence Challenges: You will be taught exactly what causes fear in public speaking situations and the key tactics that will help you defeat this incredibly common obstacle. You will also learn how to relax, and shift your focus from worrying about

    being evaluated based on your performance to instead knowing how much you are valued by your listeners.

  • Create Effective Introductions: This objective will teach you how to hook your audience right off the bat, and ensure they will stick around for the entire presentation. Avoid common mistakes that can cause your audience to lose interest fast.

Cost
