Have you taken note of how much the pace of change is quickening? Digital innovation, workforce reskilling, diversity and inclusion, and ESG are the trends du jour, seemingly a part of every organization’s evolutionary path. However, these shifts do not occur autonomously. In C-suites and board rooms across the globe, business leaders are making the case for disruptive transformation.

Do you know what skills and strategies are most correlated with the adoption of bold ideas? Are you confident in your ability to blend qualitative and quantitative arguments into a compelling storyline? Have you mastered the process of distilling voluminous decks or analytic studies into their most persuasive essence? Even if your answer to all of the above is “yes,” what happens when the stakes are higher and the stage is grander?

This executive course will introduce a set of battle-tested, pragmatic tools for impactful executive-level communication in today’s increasingly VUCA environment.
