The "It" Dynamic; Owning Your Presence
12:00pm – 1:00pm: Tim Wenzel, CPP & Lee Oughton, CSMP

Everyone’s presence changes every space in which we walk or log into. It’s important that we become attuned to our presence. Whether you’re an industry leader or fresh out of school, this skill is a relationship maker or breaker. 

Many believe we should always project strength and competency… but what happens when that type of presence actually inhibits your ideal outcome? Have you ever been so excited for a meeting or event that you sucked the oxygen and energy from the room? Have you ever been shocked by a turn of events, put on the spot in front of others, only to wish later that you had reacted completely differently?

Owning Your Presence explores how you impact each space and situation you enter. Tim Wenzel & Lee Oughton will discuss and illustrate various scenarios commonly experienced in life and business to understand the relationship between how we choose to show up and our ideal outcomes. They will help you understand the essential components of “you” so that you don’t have to compromise who you are, while reducing anxiety and creating an inspiring confidence which draws others.
