The Influential Leader: Turning High Stakes Communication into Massive ROI


When you enter a room do you own the room or does the room own you? How you look, how you sound, and the language you use, can turn a high stakes situation into a success. Influential leaders get the results they want because they have clear messaging and can tell their story with confidence and impact. Communication is not a soft skill. It’s a skill that has a financial ROI.


During this interactive session, participants will learn: 

·         How one CEO turned a $300 million investment into a billion-dollar success.

·         How leaders convinced analysts to assign a positive stock rating.

·         How HR leaders can use the same skills to influence outcomes.

Communication is no longer a soft skill and speaking is the new competitive advantage. It’s time to put your money where your mouth is and stop leaving it on the table.

You’ll leave with templates to tell your story and with the tools to exude gravitas in any situation.


This session will provide 1.5 HRCI / SHRM credits related to Leadership and Communication.



·         Date: Tuesday, October 30, 2018

·         Time: 8:00-10:00 AM (Networking, with light breakfast items until the presentation starts at 8:30 a.m.)


Location: ADP – One Penn Plaza, (34th btw 7 & 8 ave), Floor 23, New York, NY 10119


·         Cost: $25 to members, $50 to nonmembers (an additional $10 fee for at-the-door registration)

·         Photo identification may be required to enter the building.

·         This program will be submitted for 1.5 HRCI and SHRM PDC credits
