How To Exude Your Professional Presence While Networking
by Valerie Sokolosky - Apr, 2015
Last month was a flurry of events and conferences where I found myself in the midst of people I had never met. What fun to stand back and observe first hand some people who exuded executive presence from the minute they entered the room. What a dilemma to watch others struggle throughout the evening, glancing at their watch as if it was going to ring when their time was up and they could leave. Showing up with executive p...
