Presence and Gravitas, with Catherine Allison
There are simple and effective ways to boost our sense of authority, presence and gravitas at work. And — as we'll practically and collaboratively explore in this session — when we've mastered them, we'll enjoy more confidence and impact, virtually and in-person.
Gravitas, a sense of 'weight or authority', is often thought as a natural ability, something you've either got or you haven't. But with practice, and by understanding our inner voice, we can all boost our sense of gravitas — and quickly elevate our sense of presence in all kinds of contexts, feeling more capable to communicate with greater confidence and with a heightened sense of authority.
This popular, punchy session — led by communication trainer and trained actress Catherine Allison — is all about getting to grips with the idea of gravitas and immediately getting more of it into our day-to-day doings.
What we'll cover:
• Recognising the biggest stealers of our presence and gravitas
• Demonstrating confidence and control
• Using body language, facial and vocal expressions for maximum impact
• Knowing (and controlling) our inner coach and inner critic
• The power of the pause
How the session will be structured:
Warmly led by Catherine, we'll work through an energising blend of discussion, practical application and reflection as a group.
Who the session's for:
Anyone who wants to boost their sense of authority, presence and gravitas in virtual and real-world contexts — and put new tools into play right away.
Catherine's a real expert on the topic and her passion for it really shone through.
