Throughout Covid-19 we have been approached many times to offer online coaching, and have had great success and feedback with our digital courses. We have reviewed and adapted our Executive Shine workshop programme and increasingly we’re hearing how now – more than ever before – that this programme is really valued, particularly in these remote working times. After all, we’re all broadcasters now!
By now, we will all have attended more online events than we could have first imagined. We’ve watched, participated, and collaborated in many panel discussions, webinars and Zoom/MS Teams calls. You’ll have seen many examples of naturally engaging leaders and some who struggle to fully engage and hold our attention, despite having great points to make. Whatever our seniority, we are all presenters now, and we all need to speak with gravitas, impact and confidence.
Executive Shine delivers practical advice through the method of Experiential Learning and using improvisation exercises and theatrical techniques. These fun, engaging and accessible 90-minute workshops are proven to be hugely beneficial, inspirational and motivational. A creative, stimulating way to experiment with skills on screen and all the skills learned are immediately applicable and fully transferable for whenever we return to presenting on physical stages and meeting face to face.
We have a fraction of a second to make a first impression, whether we are connecting with one person over the phone or across a crowded digital conference. When preparing to deliver a pitch or a presentation or, leading up to a crucial conversation or an important meeting, most of us spend most of our preparation thinking about what we are going to say. Our audience however, base their decision whether to pay attention on how we use our body and our voice to express ourselves.
We have worked closely with Innovate Finance and their ‘Women in Fintech’ initiative to test Executive Shine with their membership firms and are delighted that our workshops have been a resounding success. Every session was oversubscribed and the feedback has exceeded our expectations.
