The world is changing - fast. Women taking positions of leadership has altered the dynamic, confusing some of the old behaviour patterns and initiating distressing incidents when engaging with tough personalities who sometimes come from an age gone by and yet still wielding the sword.

Consequentially, we can lose trust in these engagements, confidence is undermined and influence and opportunity are destroyed without even knowing why. Instead, we remain with the false notion that is about work competency, and it is not.

Confidence is competence and that competence is in the areas of vocal presence, body power and the perceived trust and influence we bring to each room.

In this incredibly hands-on and practical event for leaders, Dr Mahler will provide a point of contact to analyse, plan and review through the lens of Body/Voice and Frameworks of Communication, tailored specifically for Women in Leadership.

Over this three and a half hour session, you will learn how-to:
- Raise to awareness of who we are bringing to every engagement
- Know the difference between perception and reality for women in business
- Learn new skills and processes that are effective, show leadership and make life easy
- Incorporate these skills into real life scenarios demonstrating confidence and clarity
- Enjoy the journey
