Building trust and maximizing influence
through the power of STORYTELLING


Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: “Speech is power: speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel.

Are you looking to compel colleagues to elevate their communications in ways that will maximize their influence and leadership stature, enhance your organization’s reputation, and drive success?

Is your organization prepared to deal with challenging issues or crises? Would you like to empower your leaders and teams to leverage communications to manage reputation when the going gets tough?

Or perhaps your leaders, sales and marketing teams, and spokespeople need to take greater advantage of opportunities with journalists and via social media to shape perceptions and establish thought leadership amidst today’s chaotic, rapid-fire media landscape.

These and related topics have been the subjects of Jeff Leshay’s inspiring keynote speeches and presentations at corporate events, trade association gatherings, universities and non-profit organizations.
