Open Classes

3 Classes Open to the Public

Executive Presentation Style & Delivery

The success or failure of any executive comes from a complex mix of experience, education, persistence, passion and perseverance. But without strong presentation style and delivery, leaders often lack the skill set so necessary to advance the vision and goals.

This class will take you through the process of understanding your own presence — from the quality of your voice to the words you choose to how you look when delivering them. 

Executive Presentation Style and Delivery can reveal your known strengths and sometimes the difficult shortcomings you need to address. With proper feedback and practice from Articulation, you will be able to accelerate your influence and be better positioned to win the hearts and minds of your audiences.

Learning Objectives

  • Develop an understanding of your own presence
  • Become more effective in any presentation situation — from small group to large conference settings — by elevating your personal style, delivery and audience engagement skills.

Message Method with Storytelling 

Message Method and Storytelling can teach anyone to quickly translate complex ideas and data into compelling content and communicate solutions with confidence and clarity to win support. 

This class will help you take the guesswork out of knowing whether or not an idea has merit. With that in hand, you will be guided through a process of understanding your audience, the context, and your big idea, and then teach you how to build a case for support with data, stories, and feedback.

Learning Objectives

  • Create the highest value messages for your audience
  • Increase efficiency in fact and story gathering
  • Eliminate unnecessary work and redundancy
  • Build a common platform on which your team(s) can organize key communications
  • Build confidence in how to “correct” a runaway message
  • Understand when to use stories and how they connect to a larger message

Influential Storytelling 

Whether you are in data and analytics, medical research, marketing strategy, or finance, you have a story waiting to be told. Stories let you bridge what you know and care about to what you want your audiences to know and care about. Clearly, part of your job is to communicate your deep understand of your area of expertise but in terms that your organization’s executives, shareholders, customers, or others can relate to through storytelling. This class will help you do just that. Provided as a virtual, 3-hour open class offering.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what a story is, why it works in modern organizations, how to use stories effectively, and when it’s best to use them.
  • Learn how storytelling fits into a larger message framework and share the types of stories that resonate with audiences.
