Gifts come in all forms, and one of mine this year came in the form of an invitation to be a Visiting Executive and Lecturer at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Very exciting!

I will be on the campus in Hanover, NH, January 3rd through the 5th, giving a lecture to MBA students on Executive Presence, coaching students in one-on-one sessions, and meeting with the Dean as well as various faculty members and administrators. An amazing opportunity, a wonderful gift.

So, the countdown begins, and the preparation, which actually began months ago, continues. Yes, SmartMouth followers, I have outlined my “focal points” and my “messages” for each and every one of my presentations and important conversations. Who wouldn’t, right?!

And just as a teaser, here are the headlines from the lecture on Executive Presence: Audience Awareness and SensitivityProfessionalism and PreparednessTone and Behavior. But more on these after class …
