Transforming Leadership Presentation

The Marcus-Wolf Story

About Us

Marcus-Wolf was founded in 2004 as a solution to the growing need for business leaders to step up to the plate. The founder, Nicolette Wolf, recognised that the highest performing companies seemed to have the best presenters in place, and that there is an intrinsic connection between the perception of the brand and the personality of its leader. However, Nicolette found that many senior people, whilst technically excellent in what they do, have poor skills in presenting messages with impact. They lack the presence and interpersonal skills needed to effectively mirror the brand values – the very essence – of the companies they represent. This can have serious detrimental effects on personal / organisational strategic goal results.

After much research into the issues / weaknesses and opportunities faced by business leaders in projecting the right messages, Nicolette’s background as a professionally trained actor and educator gave her insight into how best to help leaders transform their leadership presentation impact.

It’s not new news that “people buy into people.” It has been proven that senior executives who have significant skills in relationship management increase their individual profitability by 390% in comparison with those who lack in these areas. Nicolette Wolf recognised that whilst many emerging / prominent leaders had attended “one size fits all” presentation training courses delivered by either actors or PowerPoint specialists during their careers, they were still unable to develop an authentic (and hence compelling) style of delivery that played to their individual strengths.

Marcus-Wolf was formed to help those in senior management roles develop unique personal communication styles that allow them to engage, inspire, build trust and manage the expectations of their internal and external audiences – and to do this with vision and purpose.

Marcus-wolf works with those in Senior Management enhancing their commercial and personal success by transforming leaders’ presentations skills.

Marcus-Wolf’s bespoke leadership presentation programmes explore every aspect of engaging an audience using voice delivery, physicality and the spoken word. Programmes are developed on a bespoke basis for each individual leader to ensure they are developing and playing to their strengths. Each client learns how to use their strengths to deliver an authentic, believable and powerful message, helping them gain the respect and following of their various audiences – from team members to shareholders.

Marcus-Wolf recognises that leadership presentation is a critical success factor in building a commercially successful brand; many people, when asked, can’t differentiate the reputation of a leader from the reputation or success of a company. The Marcus-Wolf method uses emotional intelligence techniques to make the most of who you are, working from the inside out to develop your unique personal brand, and building an individual, authentic style of presentation which is both genuine and relaxed.

The Marcus-Wolf approach focuses on five key areas:
– Building a sound understanding of the needs of the organisation and the individual
– Developing self-awareness / individuality
– Developing an ambassadorial leadership style and expert, practical presentation delivery skills
– Planning key message content
– Developing excellent interpersonal communication skills in order to lead and influence effectively at every level

As leaders, you have a responsibility to yourselves, shareholders, employees and the organisation to enhance your skills in these practical areas. Click here to read some of our Case Studies for examples of the benefits we’ve achieved for our clients.
