Executive Presence for Women

What your course covers

Performing brilliantly at a senior level involves more than just technical expertise; it requires excellent communication skills, commanding presence and supreme confidence.

RADA in Business’s exclusive, women-only programme develops your skills to enable you to be truly effective in business, by learning to communicate with authority, authenticity and impact.

We have taken over a decade’s worth of experience working with senior executives and translated this into a rigorous, fully participative experience which will enable you to hold your space, find your voice and be heard – so that when you speak, others listen.

This practical programme explores what type of communicator you are and the type of communicator you could become. Through structured learning, tutor coaching and peer feedback you will learn strategies to develop resilience and communicate with presence, effectiveness and credibility.

Taught in a practical, safe yet intensive environment, this transformative learning has a maximum participant/tutor ratio of 4:1, providing a critically high level of individual attention, coaching and feedback.
