The participant will be someone deeply knowledgeable and experienced in a business or functional area and has recently been identified and promoted for an executive role. With increasing international team responsibility, the participant needs to exude the ability to represent the company unambiguously.


Time Commitment

The training is done for a total of 8 hours, ideally spread out over two consecutive afternoons. Because of the small group ( up to two participants ), it allows significant flexibility and customization. A rehearsal presentation is filmed and analyzed, feedback given, an then the final version re-filmed and reviewed together.


Ambience & Environment

The participant(s) are encouraged to see this as a trusting, informal and high-energy discussion, to facilitate opening up and focusing in on the aspects that the participant feel needs most attention. The highly confidential nature of this training allows experimentation in style and approach. Paul Hussey  is there to facilitate and engage with the participants needs and support their development
