Did you know that there is a secret language of leadership that has determined who has reached the top in politics and business since the dawn of time?

In this workshop, you will discover a range of incredibly simple but phenomenally powerful techniques from this secret language, based on a mix of ancient rhetoric and neuroscience. You will also get the chance to try out some of these techniques, working with one of the world’s top speechwriters.
