  • Examine posture, body language and how it affects presence and impact
  • Learn relaxation techniques to help you when you are communicating
  • Practice articulation exercises to improve the clarity of your speech

Making an impact

  • Develop an open style which portrays confidence and authority
  • Practice making an entrance and holding an audience’s attention
  • Learn how to better engage an audience
