"Executive Presence: Conduct Becoming the Corner Office" speaks to behaviors, some subtle, some apparent, that place a candidate in the best possible stance for being considered for executive roles. A humorous look at behaviors antithetical to being considered and most likely to result in being overlooked will drive home the point.

"Managing Leadership: A Symbiosis" speaks to the interdependency of management and leadership. Where much effort is expended on clarifying the difference between them, this presentation throws caution to the wind and addresses the need for both whenever responsibility and oversight are demanded of a role.
