Executive presence is established by myriad factors, from physical and verbal to mental and emotional — but it is fundamentally a matter of communication. All Syntaxis executive presence training is conducted by communication skills expert Brandt Johnson, who is a former investment banker, speechwriter, and professional basketball player. Brandt has worked extensively with senior executives of major corporations across the United States and around the world. He is the author of the book Practical Presentation Skills: Authenticity, Focus & Strength.
By communicating a sense of authenticity, audience awareness, and confidence, the most compelling executives establish a strong presence and inspire the people around them. Syntaxis executive presence training addresses the unique needs of the individual participants and can consider any aspect of their way of communicating. The training focuses on specific instances of participants’ own workplace interactions in order to ensure the greatest possible relevance. Video review serves as an important complement to instructor feedback. Seeing themselves through the objective lens of the camera helps participants better understand how they are seen by others.
