Executive Communication Masterclass

Acacia Duncan introduces the Executive Communication Masterclass in this short video. 

Are you tired of your team members struggling to effectively communicate their insights to different audiences and stakeholders? We can help. Articulation is pleased to introduce our new Executive Communication Masterclass. 

The Executive Communication Masterclass is an ideal way for team members to learn how to present their ideas with confidence and impact. 

This 8-week program involves both synchronous and asynchronous sessions– from the orientation, where we set the stage, to the culmination at the small group presentation session. The total investment is about 10 hours.

Our masterclass is not just about learning. It’s about transformation. By the end of the program, your team members will have the tools, techniques, and confidence to deliver impactful presentations, no matter the audience or the complexity of their insights.

Learn more about the sessions included in the Executive Communication Masterclass below.

Orientation Session

Message Method Fundamentals

This Message Method Fundamentals session will help take the guesswork out of wrestling through content to determine what to share with an audience.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine and create the highest value messages for an audience
  • Build a common platform on which the speakers / teams can organize key communications
  • Identify and deliver bottom-line first messages

Fundamentals Feedback

Within 7-10 days after the 2nd class, participants will apply the fundamentals to a collection of data from their line of business that needs to be delivered to a specific audience. They will share their bottom-line first slide visual and be offered feedback and coaching on their application of the fundamentals.
