Essential Skills Training: Professional Women’s Empowerment - Developing Executive Presence

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Wednesday, March 25, 2015 - AmCham China Conference Center

Executive presence is often referred to as the “it” factor – the ability of some people to exude confidence, to have influence and to effectively get others to accept their ideas. Research shows that there is a different set of expectations for professional women and professional men.

In this one-day session, we’ll look at some fascinating research, engage in dynamic discussion and, most importantly, get practical tips on how to develop our executive presence as professional women. You will actively engage with like-minded women to increase your own awareness around the message you send through your communication, and put some practical tools into action. This course will be delivered in English.

Check out some of the benefits participants report from this workshop:
• Increased confidence
• An ability to speak out at the right times
• Communicate with intention and clarity
• Understand how to express passion and enthusiasm in the areas that you want to grow in
• Access to a simple, practical tool kit to executive presence
• Meet and share with like-minded women

Who Should Attend:
This is an open course for professional women committed to their own growth. We welcome professionals from all industries and backgrounds.
