Impact and Influence in Real Time
Join us as author and business consultant Catherine Johns tells how to create the personal, face-to-face presence that allows you to influence others (like clients) and to subtly lead conversations in the direction you want while remaining true to yourself.
We like to think that our work speaks for itself. The truth is, you have to speak for your work. Catherine will show us how.
Catherine has worked as a radio news anchor, talk show host and sassy morning-show side-chick. She spent 18 years at WLS-AM 890, the first 11 as news anchor—primarily with radio legend Larry Lujack. She also hosted her own talk show at WLS before moving alongside John Records Landecker in 1998. Since she broke out of the broadcasting boys' club, Catherine has been guiding entrepreneurs and executives to speak up, stand out, and make their message more magnetic. She is also the author of Show Up and Shine: Simple Steps to Boost Your Confidence and Charisma.
