Sharpen Your Competitive Edge
Soft skills are six times more important than hard skills for job success, according to research conducted by Harvard University, the Carnegie Foundation, and Stanford Research Center. Your communication skills, leadership style, and executive presence are among the soft skills that are crucial for your success. If you find yourself unable to capitalize on your technical expertise, perhaps it is your soft skills that need some polishing.
A powerful presence requires constant sharpening, which is why we teach business professionals, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and more how to conduct an annual audit of their image, behavior, and communication. From strategically navigating a networking event and understanding generational differences to personal branding and dressing more effectively, participants in our courses acquire practical tools and a competitive edge in engaging, small groups settings.

Professional Presence: Branded for Success
A powerful presence transforms your personal brand. Your presence communicates volumes about you long before your technical skills and talent have an opportunity to be seen. Decades of research confirm that social skills are six times more important than technical skills for job success. Strong social skills equip you to effectively engage, inspire, and lead because you are remembered for all the right reasons. What does your presence—your appearance, behavior, and conversation—say about you? Are you branded for success?
Professional Presence: Branded for Success is a powerful, single day course designed to sharpen your social skills and give you the “soft” edge required for success. Soft skills—just like any other skill—must be learned and practiced. Join a diverse group of men and women seeking practical tools to elevate their presence and transform their personal and professional relationships. Topics covered include Business vs. Social Etiquette, The Power of Civility, Strategic First Impressions, Introductions, Handshaking, Business Card Presentation, Effective Communication, Technology Etiquette, Polished Wardrobes, and so much more! You will also enjoy our signature Dining Skills Luncheon. The Luncheon is a multi-course dining experience that facilitates personal, hands-on dining etiquette instruction.

The Power of a Gentleman
Gentlemen, your communication techniques, leadership style, and executive presence are among the “soft” skills required for success. Decades of research confirm that soft skills separate thriving individuals from everyone else. We call these skills “soft,” implying they are optional and making it easy for us to move on to something seemingly more urgent. However—far from “soft”—these interpersonal skills are incredibly hard to learn, practice, and master. Mastery requires good coaching and time spent getting out of your comfort zone. If you find yourself (or a man you know) unable to capitalize on technical expertise, perhaps it is soft skills that need some polishing. We can help.
The Power of a Gentleman is a fast-paced day designed to sharpen your interpersonal skills and transform your personal brand. Uncover blind spots and discover new ways to navigate professional and personal relationships with a group of successful men. No matter what your skill level is today, there is always more to learn! You will acquire practical tools and a competitive edge by exploring a series of topics that every professional must master, including: Business vs. Social Etiquette, The Power of Civility, Strategic First Impressions, Introductions, Handshaking, Business Card Presentation, Effective Communication, Technology Etiquette, Professional Wardrobes, and so much more! You will also enjoy our signature Dining Skills Luncheon, which includes a multi-course meal served with step-by-step dining etiquette instruction.
