In her high-energy, interactive keynote, Peggy Klaus will teach the behavioral techniques essential to creating a dynamic and impactful communication style so that you can effectively influence even the most skeptical of audiences. According to Peggy, “Believing that leaders are born, not made, is like believing Serena Williams came out of the womb hitting a tennis ball, ready to win 22 Grand Slam Tournaments. Great leaders, like great athletes, become the best they can be by first learning the skills they need for success and then by relentlessly practicing them.”

Peggy Klaus  has appeared on Nightline, the  Today Show,  and 20/20,  and has been published  in  The New  York  TimesWall Street  Journal,  Harvard  Business  Review,  Fortune  and  O Magazine.  She has also written two best-selling books  ̶  “BRAG! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It” and “The Hard Truth About Soft Skills: Workplace Lessons Smart People Wish They’d Learned Sooner.”
