Public Speaking

Rachid Sefrioui's proven experience speaks to helping managers and their teams when:
  • they come from different parts of the organization (as a result of a redraft of the org chat)
  • they come from different organizations as a result of a merger or an acquisition
  • they are spun off and feel unworthy as a result of being detached from their anchor organization
Rachid's speeches motivate each staff member, associate, team leader and manager to find the "New Anchor Within". The New Anchor onto which to rebuild one's professional self-esteem, self-worthiness to the team, and self-relevance of the team in the new organization.
His sessions are a roller-coaster of emotions, both personal and professional, that touch each attendee and relate to the deepest emotional level of the group.
"Anchor Within" sessions last about 2 hours, and involve heavy interaction with the audience. Maximum group size is 50.
