The world is changing – fast. Women taking positions of leadership has altered the dynamic, confusing some of the old behaviour patterns and initiating distressing incidents when engaging with tough personalities who sometimes come from an age gone by and yet still wielding the sword.
Consequentially, we can lose trust in these engagements, confidence is undermined and influence and opportunity are destroyed without even knowing why. Instead, we remain with the false notion that is about work competency, and it is not.
Confidence is competence and that competence is in the areas of vocal presence, body power and the perceived trust and influence we bring to each room.
In this incredibly hands-on and practical event for leaders, Dr Mahler will provide a point of contact to analyse, plan and review through the lens of Body/Voice and Frameworks of Communication, tailored specifically for those in leadership roles.
Over the 3.5 hour session, you will learn how-to:
Delivered in-person, these comprehensive sessions will be divided into three key themes:
Getting your voice heard
Handling difficult situations

The leadership team absolutely loved it and found it very valuable. I had one GM say she wished he’d attended the workshop 10 years ago and that it was the best workshop she’s attended in her career.

Thanks to Louise’s training I have reached my goal. Thank you for doing your work. What you did for me was nothing short of life-changing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
-Bernadette Cangelosi Partner, KPMG
The feedback we received from our first online event with Dr Louise Mahler was overwhelmingly positive and exactly what we needed given the current virtual working environment. Not only was it the most highly attended optional event we’ve had in years, but Louise’s presentation was followed by multiple requests of when she will be returning as a guest speaker again. We couldn’t recommend Louise for a workplace event more highly!
-Meredith Chester, Partner, PWC
Louise brought smiles to our faces and taught us some extremely valuable and important skills at the same time! I have just jumped off a Zoom with the entire unit management team, and she is still the talk of the town, with many saying they can’t wait to watch the webinar again!
Covid-19 lockdown was made enjoyable because of Louise! She is a powerhouse and if I can just muster up a small amount of her gravitas, I will have achieved an element of greatness!
-Shelley Cox, Sales Manager, Astrazeneca
Dr Louise Mahler is one of the most remarkable individuals I have ever come across by virtue of her multiple and diverse skillsets, sense of humour and generosity in sharing her many pearls of wisdom! She has distilled the art of communication into succinct components to achieve both effective and engaging interaction with audiences of any size. Her advice is relevant to both personal and professional contexts, face-to-face or online formats. No one should miss the opportunity to learn from Louise!
