Executive Presence refers those people who walk into a room and everyone turns to look at them, when they speak people listen and when they lead, others follow! These people command authority – exude energy that is magnetic and possess charisma that is captivating! Their appearance is impeccable; they present themselves with confident composure, perfect poise and an exceptional ability to develop relationships of trust.
Executive Presence has prompted numerous research studies to establish exactly what it is. The question was, are some people just born with Executive Presence or can it be learned? Findings revealed that Executive Presence is in fact a set of soft skills that can be developed. Executive Presence is made up of multiple intelligences. When combined, they send the signal of a powerful and credible leader. These are Emotional Intelligence - how we feel about and manage ourselves; Social Intelligence – inter-personal skills and the ability to develop relationships of trust; Business Intelligence – ones level of competence and Brand Intelligence – how we are presented and perceived in person, the media and online.
In essence, Executive Presence is about developing credibility and managing perceptions. This is done by creating a powerful personal brand; combined with effective inter-personal and communication skills, packaged together with an impeccable personal appearance, confident composure and charisma.

"We had the pleasure of Lynn Baker as our Master of Ceremony for the launch of the FNB Stadium Conference and function facilities. Presenting to 300 guests in a 90 000 seater stadium takes a huge amount of presence and Lynn Baker certainly had that and more. I have no hesitation in recommending Lynn as an Master of Ceremony and Keynote speaker."

"... What I found particularly refreshing having now worked with you, is your desire to be involved over and above the role you were commissioned to perform. Throughout the lead up to the conference you demonstrated a flexibility and willingness to adapt to our business needs and contribute to the business elements of our conference above and beyond your remit. This was very welcome and differentiates you from many other conference speakers."
