This is a new two day Certificate program through CPA Ontario. It’s 2019 and in certain contexts, women continue to struggle with being viewed as influential leaders. It’s time to change that mindset. Time to take the stage. This program addresses communication habits that reduce women’s abilities to come across as prominent leaders. Taking the stage is for women who want to develop their communication skills and become stronger, more confident leaders. Participants will discover how to unlock the power of their voice, adopt an assertive mindset and script themselves with clarity and intention.


By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • View every communication as an opportunity to influence.
  • Craft and communicate a strong leadership identity.
