London, UK (PRWEB) December 19, 2007
When Image Consultant Michelle Sterling and Communications Coach LeeAundra Temescu began offering Executive Impact, an innovative training program in executive presence, in 2004 they knew they were taking a risk.
Integrating style and substance was rare in corporate training programs. Seminars either focused on wardrobe and image or communications and public speaking. There were few that conveyed the importance and interrelatedness of both. Furthermore, it was almost impossible to find one person or training firm that was expert in both. But Sterling and Temescu were convinced that today's managers needed "the total package" to become polished, professional, articulate executives who were on their way to the top.
And it appears they were right. After four years, Executive Impact is now the leading training program for executive presence in the U.S. and still one of the few that understands executives need both the right image and the right message to be truly effective. In response to this success, Executive Impact is now being rolled out globally with dates in Dubai, London, and Hong Kong.
According to Sterling, "Image and communication used to be extremely culture specific but the number of international executives who have traveled to participate in our program here in the U.S. as well as the enormous amount of inquiries we've received from people around the world have showed us that what we are teaching is pretty universal."
Temescu agrees, "The world, especially the business world, is becoming increasingly smaller and the core elements of executive presence that we help our international clients develop; credibility, flexibility, critical thinking, polish, and poise, are some of the most important skills for global, forward thinking professionals everywhere."
Like their seminars in the U.S., Executive Impact Worldwide will impart critical skills to participants in image, wardrobe, public speaking, and in-the-moment communications. Most important, it will help them understand that what you wear and how and what you say are fundamentally dependant on each other and must be consistent with each other to be truly effective.
