#Covid-19 update: This event will now be a live online masterclass, with details provided below. Delegate numbers will be similar to a face-to-face event, enabling participants to have interaction with the speaker and work with other delegates (for example via group work and online polls).

A fully completed and authorised nomination form is required for this event. Those who have previously registered need take no action (other than completing any pre-work). All participants will be sent joining instructions explaining how to access the event online.


Your tone, energy and presence are key in inspiring others. On a plane we assess the voice of the pilot; a calm, confident voice reflects an ability to respond well to turbulence. Embodied leadership is also tested in times of turbulence; leaders are judged by their grace under fire – an ability to maintain self-control, communicate effectively and maintain trust.

This event provides a toolkit for centring yourself, so you can embody leadership in an authentic way. You’ll learn how to deal with turbulence in meetings, to stay centred around difficult people and take this mindful, embodied practice forward.

Key words

The primary theme is ENGAGEMENT and the secondary theme is LEADERSHIP.

It is relevant to the development of Gravitas, Presence, Impact, Influence, Persuasion, Leadership, Resilience.
