THE RADICAL ENTREPRENEUR

 

THE RADICAL ENTREPRENEUR

The Radical Entrepreneur is a uniquely experiential masterclass designed to get ambitious entrepreneurs and business leaders radically shifting the way they pitch so that their impact rockets.

This is an opportunity to develop conviction, clarity, presence and that rare commodity - authenticity.

 

The Radical Entrepreneur intensive looks at how we come across when we pitch, how we actually "sell" our ideas and how we handle difficult objections. The aim is to strengthen our credibility so we push less and win more.

You will learn to:

  • Own your physical space,

  • Signal authority in your domain,

  • Speak assertively and convincingly,

  • Define your target audience and meet core needs,

  • Structure your pitch so you capture attention,

  • Simplify and develop clarity of language,

  • Stay poised when challenged,

  • Tell a compelling story of your business idea,

  • Be more authentic, spontaneous and exciting,

  • Handle difficult objections with confidence,

  • Channel nerves so they serve you rather than hinder,

  • Let go of what anyone thinks,

  • Capture imagination and win trust,

  • And most of all - develop a winning presence! 

 

You cannot underestimate the power of communication. It's the fuel that rockets your ideas from obscurity to ultimate visibility. It's the engine that drives your business to the highest domain. And it's the bedrock of all successful business stories.

Participants will practice their pitches on the day and receive laser-focussed feedback on how they can empower their communication to grow their business.

No matter whom you are talking to, learn what it takes to own the stage, inspire your listeners and ensure your words finally land.

THE LEADERSHIP

VOICE

THE LEADERSHIP VOICE

The Leadership Voice is dynamic leadership training for ambitious business executives with at least five years leadership experience.

Being an influential leader requires much more than learning textbook leadership theory. You will need to master the art of persuasion and develop the skill to inspire confidence in others particularly through times of change.

Through discussion, storytelling, presentations and fun role-play based conversations, we will become aware of the behaviours that hold us back and practice the more powerful behaviours needed to influence our peers into positive action - no matter the circumstance.

Like a leading actor owns the stage, we too will learn how to own important business scenarios; be it a high-stake meeting, appraisal, team briefing, difficult business conversation, tricky negotiation or more formal pitch or presentation.

You’ll be encouraged to aim high, commit to your purpose, take risks, trust your ideas, listen actively and develop your personal edge so you can raise your performance game beyond what you thought possible. 


In sum, we will be practicing what it takes to become a truly inspiring leader on the corporate battlefield.

THE PRESENTER


THE PRESENTER


The Presenter
masterclass focuses purely on sharpening your presentation skills and is aimed at executives, entrepreneurs and creatives who need to deliver effective talks, speeches and presentations to win more business.

We look at nerves and learn exactly how to channel this useful energy into a more powerful expression of our communication. We prioritise spontaneity, aliveness, originality and self-empowerment over a scripted and inhibited delivery.

We also look at our use of language and efficacy of words to convey a clearer message. We learn how to go “off-script” so we sound more believable and authentic, and we practice connecting to our audience through convincing storytelling.

Just like a great actor inhabits their role with every fibre of their being, we too will learn to inhabit our presentations with our fullest, most dynamic self.

And through inspiring our own imaginations, we learn to bring even the dullest business presentations to life.

You’ll learn to:

  • Make a strong and commanding entrance,

  • Bring more of yourself to your presentation,

  • Deliver a message that resonates,

  • Close with powerful effect,

  • Use your breath to calm nerves,

  • Power up your voice to influence and inspire,

  • Convey a strong physical presence,

  • Learn to structure according to your objectives,

  • Explore powerful language to capture imagination,

  • Connect with your audience and sustain their interest,

  • Fearlessly navigate difficult Q&A’s,

  • Deliver a short presentation and receive individual feedback!

You'll get in-the-room feedback with opportunities to practise amongst your peers - giving you an insight into the impact you're having on others.

The insights learned are applicable to a variety of business settings such as: high-pressure meetings, appraisals, negotiations and conversations with peers that pose potential conflict.
