Presentation Skills Boot Camp Recap - Michael Weiss

Posted By Administration, Monday, March 21, 2016

What a great class this time around. So many companies and agencies were in attendance, it felt like a great representation of the advertising industry in Los Angeles. We focused a lot of the “fear of public speaking” and how to deal with it - especially the exercises to burn off excess cortisol and adrenaline. We also spent a great deal of time discussing the Four Personalities and how to deal with each type when giving a presentation. The highlight of course was watching the final presentations and seeing how much people improved from the initial Personal Story exercise. I have to say this was a very engaged group and we had a lot of fun while learning a lot!

Build Your Personal Brand: Leadership Tools For Women - Recap

Posted By Sara H. Smith, Friday, February 26, 2016
Our first class geared specifically to women was a sellout. Women from a diverse group of companies and at different stages in their careers dove into the five aspects of their personal brand: appearance, associations, reputation, talent and skills, and voice. Chelsea, our instructor, challenged women to think more specifically about these aspects - how to build them, own them and love them.
