Influence Redefined …
Be the Leader You Were Meant to Be, Monday to Monday

Monday, July 18

Most of us are unaware of how our listeners perceive us. We’re constantly given feedback like “good job,” and we never REALLY take a close look to see ourselves through the eyes and ears of our listeners. Stacey increases your awareness of how much influence you really have rather than what you believe to be true.

In this highly interactive keynote, specifically customized for you, Stacey helps you eliminate the static that plagues communicative delivery – to deliver a clear message that persuades, sells your ideas, influences, and makes you more effective through all mediums.

Attendees Learn:
  • How to move people to action long after the interaction is over

  • Create a standout experience that separates you from the crowd

  • Communication miscues, both verbal and nonverbal

  • How to consistently achieve communicative results
