WITI Los Angeles Regional Network

Thursday, October 7, 2004
5:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Join us as we launch our Ventura County Network and meet Peggy Klaus, President of Klaus & Associates in Berkeley, CA, a much in-demand consultant who has spent nearly a decade advising some of America's top Fortune 500 executives in the art of self-presentation and promotion. Her advice covers women's leadership and executive presence, among other things. Her client list includes JP Morgan Chase, Levi Strauss, American Express, Disney, Goldman Sachs, Cisco Systems and Booz Allen Hamilton. Her colorful and frank advice is frequently sought out by journalists, and she has been featured and quoted extensively in a wide range of media including Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Newsweek, Fortune, CNET, and Investors Business Daily.

Raising Your EPQ: Executive Presence for Everyone
We have all met people with a high Executive Presence Quotient (EPQ). You know, the ones who exude confidence with a compelling combination of warmth and strength. So, why should you be projecting anything less with your own persona? This highly interactive workshop has shown thousands how to convey a more dynamic and authentic communication style in their interactions with clients, colleagues, bosses, employees, and the media. After assessing your own EPQ, you will find out how to raise it using the tools of voice, body language and humor. Don’t check your personality at the door. Instead, learn how to combine style with substance to make a memorable impression with everyone you meet.
