Last week, RADA in Business flew across the pond to deliver our Executive Presence for Women open course programme in Toronto – and we made sure that we packed our hats and gloves in preparation for the -10oC temperature!

Executive Presence for Women is a programme specifically designed for senior women in business, supporting them in overcoming the common challenges that women face in their business careers. Our senior tutors, Sheelagh McNamara and Lisa Åkesson equip delegates with the skills and techniques to find their voice, hold their space and make their desired impact in order to enhance their personal effectiveness and career progression. The programme has been running for two years and is highly successful in the UK and abroad.

This is the third time that we have delivered the course in Toronto. This time delegates included senior women from Accenture, Procter & Gamble, HSBC and Mawer Investment Management. We received fantastic feedback, with one delegate describing her experience as ‘outstanding’ and ‘transformational’.

As well as running our open course programme, we were also invited to deliver a personal impact masterclass at Communitech for their women’s network. Communitech is an industry-led innovation centre that supports tech companies at all stages of growth and development – from start-ups to rapidly growing mid-sized companies and large global players. The masterclass was led by Sheelagh McNamara and explored skills in how to come across with authority, presence and credibility in the technology industry, and how to build and maintain confidence at work.

All in all it was a fantastic week, and we look forward to returning to Toronto in the near future.
