Session Description

Executive presence is often thought of as personal presence, or a type of leadership demeanor. It’s a trait we see in others, which can leave us wondering: How we can develop our own executive presence? What does executive presence actually mean? While there is some truth to the idea that executive presence comes more naturally for some than others, the reality is, this type of leadership development is a characteristic skill-set that everyone can work on. In this discussion, Lori LeBas (SVP of Affiliate Partnership Development & Operations at ESPN) and Doreen Studley (VP, Non-Customer Acquisition at Cox) will share their own experiences to help define what executive presence looks like at various experience levels and provide takeaways and action steps for those looking to grow in this area.
