For company executives and board directors, speaking in front of large groups is a critical function of leadership to establish credibility and influence opinions.
Leading research supports that notion, showing that the top 10% of properly prepared, authentic speakers were considered to be 1.3 times more trustworthy and more persuasive than the average communicator. Yet estimates show 75% of people have anxiety about public speaking. And, surveys find just 8% seek professional help.
At ECPR, we know that winning leaders don’t leave things to chance. With our Executive Speaker Training program, we apply the same tenacity and attention to detail to our clients in the C-suite and boardroom who understand the connection between their performance at the podium and their business outcomes. Our proprietary program includes research and analysis of your audience and your goals; speech writing and editing; and coaching on speaking and mannerisms—including clothing, rehearsals and videos to track and improve your speaking skills.
We can help you—or your boss—get prepared and confident in time for that big keynote, employee or shareholder meeting, customer event or civic engagement opportunity.
