Brand You: Pitching for Success focuses on maximizing your personal brand with a range of insights into what really matters when others evaluate you and your performance. Many people possess excellent skills and have significant experience but are frustrated at being unable to gain support for projects and promotions or being heard in meetings or by peers and others.

This essential workshop focuses on maximising your capacity to present and pitch at business and board level and how to make more effective contributions in meetings and presentations. Many of you will already have these skills, but may be frustrated at failing to cut-through. This workshop will help you to identify these blockages (or blockers) and overcome them.

Key learnings include:

  • The importance of building and supporting your brand
  • Personal presence and impact
  • Finding your voice
  • Tailoring and targeting your message
  • Making more effective contributions in meetings and presentations
  • The knack of getting noticed for the right reasons
  • Identifying blockages(and blockers) and overcoming them

Testimonials from former participants:

"The exercises allowed self-reflection and an opportunity to discuss with the presenter and other participants. The feedback was valuable."

"Claire has been a wealth of knowledge that was shared openly and with honesty; she also has a good sense of humour which made the workshop enjoyable."

"A useful and supportive environment that made me honestly evaluate my capacity in a no-nonsense way. Instead of thinking "No, not me, I can't", I walked away thinking "why not me?" Quite challenging, but very worthwhile."

"I found this course particularly useful in that it gave insight with a hands up approach and focus on capacity of individuals that already exists."
