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.

Description

Shhh… Did you know there is a secret Language of Leadership: a secret set of verbal, vocal and physical cues that has remained largely unchanged throughout the course of history that determines who succeeds in politics and business?

The Language of Leadership combines ancient rhetorical devices with recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and behavioural economics to offer the definitive guide to leadership communication. The Language of Leadership sets out a simple three-step approach to winning minds.

Key words

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

It is relevant to the development of Influence, Communication, Presentation, Inspiration, Confidence.
