Are you Ready to Shine When the Going Gets Tough?

Have you ever had to stand in front of a hostile audience and explain what happened? Have you ever had to present bad news to the Board of Directors?   Have you ever been surprised to find out, at the last minute, the presentation you are about to make will be posted on YouTube?

When these opportunities come up, are you calm, cool, collected and pleased with your aplomb or do you wish you could find a better way to be at your best and appear like the seasoned professional you are supposed to be?

Now is your chance to learn how to shine like the brilliant professional you really are.

On Thursday, June 7th, together with CrisisMediaCoaches, Business World Rising is offering  a very special small-group media training workshop designed for anyone who wants to create favorable impressions in any type of high stakes situation.

During this special half-day session, you will learn how to improve your under-pressure communication skills so you can be poised and ready to face any number of high-pressure situations – from dealing with a sensitive personnel issue that becomes public knowledge,  to helping the leadership team respond to the media in the event of an emergency. 

Sign up now for our special open-to-the public workshop:
