How well an educational institution does also depends on how well it is viewed. And how it is viewed depends on whether or not any intentional effort has gone into how education professionals present themselves and their work.

Education professionals operate within an intriguing nexus, pulled by countless forces vying for their time. Academic research needs, curriculum-building, teaching courses, mentoring students, drafting up grant proposals, plus fulfilling the service and administrative demands of their establishment. These are but a few of the spinning plates which those in the wide world of academia must somehow balance.

How can one juggle these often-times competing agendas while helping their institution generate the funding to survive and operate? After all, the institution requires sufficient student enrollment, donations, and other investments, which all depend on everything from the prestige of the faculty to the recognition received by research, the strength of industry partnerships, and the productivity of professional organizations.

How well an educational institution does depends on how well it is viewed, based on the above and more. And how we are viewed depends on whether or not any intentional effort or planning has gone into how we present ourselves and our work. Whoever can understand and master their own presentation will be able to fine tune and control the perception of it.

Understanding this fundamental concept is where international keynote speaker Sylvie di Giusto comes in. Sylvie has started her very own career as a teacher and spent half a lifetime analyzing the psychology behind what drives us to make determinations about one another. What are the variables and factors which impact how students, parents, collaborators, and stakeholders view us? Which of these can we control, and how can we make adjustments which increase our leverage and authority in these situations? In other words–how can we adjust our outward facing personas to maximize our influence and standing with those we need? That’s the nexus that Sylvie operates in, which is why countless Fortune 500 businesses have reached out for her expertise, as well as Universities such as Penn University, Hofstra University, and Harvard University where she has worked with students, educators and administration professionals alike.

Watch Sylvie in Action

Sylvie has crafted an engaging and succinct keynote presentation which turns the results of her studies into actionable tactics, where participants can quickly understand:

  • how to impress anyone within the first seven seconds of your encounter by knowing and overcoming all of the micro-judgements people make about each other;
  • how to present the Appearance and Behavior of someone a stakeholder, student, industry partner, or proposal reviewer can instantly relate to and want to work with;
  • how to Communicate, in person as well as online via our Digital Footprint, our messages in a manner which wins over immediate support for our points of view!

Sylvie’s analytical presentations are both entertaining and incredibly insightful. When you are ready for a value-added addition to your next upcoming conference, reach out and Sylvie to book an engagement.
