Impact and Gravitas: Developing Personal Presence



This programme is for those who want to “own the room”, raise their profile, and have greater presence in meetings – both in physical and virtual / online meetings. It enables participants to be noticed in meetings beyond just their status or technical contribution.


Delivered virtually in 2 x 120-minute sessions, for 4 people, with intersession work and supporting materials.

Learning objectives and content:

This programme will develop effectiveness by: 

  • Understanding the dynamics of impact beyond what we say, especially how physical and vocal issues can add or detract depending on how used.
  • Physical alignment, freeing the body to work effectively while looking confident in others eyes.
  • Learning how to breathe efficiently: to aid relaxation, energise, think more clearly and develop a clearer voice.
  • Speaking to be heard, by developing the 5Ps of Projection, Pronunciation, Pace, Pitch and Pause.
  • Becoming aware of internal dialogue and where we choose to place our attention. 
  • Understanding how we award others value and ‘status’ based on variable criteria, then re-focusing the attention so we award ourselves.
  • Creating a ‘confidence reserve’ to draw on when needed, and practising delivery of confidence reserve with coaching on how to access and apply when needed.
