WLI Keynote — Art of Executive Presence*
Buddy Bush, JB Training Solutions

Track: WLI

In business it’s often the finer details that count. It’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it, and how you act when you say it. It’s not always about who has the leadership title but who can make a great first impression, command a presence, and handle social situations with professionalism. Often, brilliant employees with innovative ideas are ignored because they fail to convey executive presence and instill trust in their capabilities. This session will break down executive presence and how you can create a positive impression, command a room, and communicate confidentially and with purpose, both verbally and nonverbally. Leave with the skills to exude confidence and strong executive presence in any situation.

*WLI Keynote Session is not included in any ISA Education Packages and requires separate registration.
