Charisma and Leadership: The Science of Trust and Rapport
You only get one chance to make the right first impression. Within a few seconds, people judge your level of intelligence, trustworthiness, and social status. This happens in an instant, and yet can impact the way you're perceived for the rest of the relationship. How can you turn this to your advantage? This session will cover the science of charisma; the keys to making fantastic first impressions, and the secrets to having that "Wow effect", that "boardroom presence" to quickly establish credibility, trust, and rapport.

Influence and Persuasion: What You Need to Know When Attempting to Motivate, Influence or Sell Today
For the past months, people have been anxious and nervous, burrowing for cover. How can you get people to start moving forward, supporting your ideas and initiatives? This is where behavioral science comes in. In this presentation, Cabane will discuss the techniques she originally developed for Harvard and MIT and will provide key insights into how to generate trust and loyalty.

Shortcuts to Self Confidence: How to Dismantle the "Impostor Syndrome" and Silence the Inner Critic
Have you ever felt as if only half of your mind were present in a conversation; while the other half was busy beating you up? Internal self-criticism is known as one of the biggest obstacles to great performance. It's often called the "silent killer" of business—so many good executives suffer from it, yet so few dare to speak about it. In this paradigm-shifting session, Olivia will provide key insights and practical techniques to increase your self-confidence and self-esteem.

Other topics include:
- Navigating Through Uncertainty: How to better tolerate internal discomfort; difficult experiences and emotions
- Listening Skills & Empathy: How to generate rapport, trust and loyalty
- Increasing Innovation: Getting people into the innovation mindset
- Dealing with Difficult People: Handling big egos or difficult conversations
- Personal Branding: How to position yourself as the expert in your field
- Gravitas: how to exude boardroom presence
