Hey Everyone! It’s that time of year again! Tickets are now on sale for the Women in Consumer Technology’s 9th Annual CEDIA Luncheon at this year’s CEDIA conference in San Diego. We sell out every year, so get a ticket while they are still available. And gentlemen, you are most welcome to attend – last year we had approximately 35% male attendance. It’s a great networking opportunity and you have to eat lunch sometime!
This year we have an amazing presenter and program – Executive Presence. Women in Consumer Technology proudly welcomes Drew Jacobs, Training Manager and Facilitator for the Ariel Group.
The Ariel Group combines best practices from actor training and adult learning and helps business professionals develop presence: the ability to connect authentically, communicate effectively, inspire action and build the relationships that help them achieve results.
Executive Presence helps potential leaders demonstrate the confidence that matches their expertise and intellect. Our luncheon attendees will explore the subtleties of voice, body and message congruence. To achieve these results, The Ariel Group employs theater-based, participative techniques that include:
- Interactive exercises that introduce participants to behaviors that can add or detract from their ability to communicate effectively.
- Techniques to develop an awareness of body language and vocal quality as tools in projecting a commanding presence.
- Opportunities for peer-coaching, with guidance from the facilitator, providing each participant to hone their ability to coach others.
This year’s luncheon will be held on September 8th, at the San Diego Convention Center. Doors will open at 11:30 am and the program will run from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm. Details about the luncheon and ticket ordering can be found here. Join us for an exciting informative luncheon with some of the brightest minds in our industry!
