Advocacy & Influence

April 5, 2018

Taught by Karen Hough (a best-selling author and former actress with Chicago's Second City), this class is an interactive and immersive workshop that will teach you what it takes to be an influencer.

You'll learn how improvisation can improve communication skills, advanced advocacy and negotiation skills, how to build your personal brand and create a sphere of influence, and more. Karen's "Executive Presence" program garnered "excellent" and "exceptional" raves.
