Ambience & Environment
This is an opportunity to create a "brothers-in-arms" esprit-de-corps amongst the troika who are the key executive functions within an organization. The atmosphere created is one of relaxed, " lets focus on getting our message across", bonding the efforts of the key individuals who hunker-down to prepare a united front of a message to the non-executive members of the Board. While ostensibly about the art of public speaking, the dual effect is to give the Executive Team the empowerment to act as one solid team, under the leadership of the C.E.O.

Business case for training
