Everyone has heard this phrase flung around the workplace, whether it's come from someone else or possibly you? "I don't have that level of influence..." a topic that resonates with many young professionals.

What if you told you that true influence has nothing to do with your age, how long you've been employed or your position title.

Everything you know about presence, mindset, body language and communication will be redefined. Who better to hear this from? Expert in influence, confidence and vocal intelligence, Dr Louise Mahler will dive into the the tactics of influence in the workplace and transform the way we have impact on others.

About Dr Louise Mahler
PHD, B.Econ, B.Mus, M.App.Sc, Grad. Dip.Mus, L.Mus.A (Winner RMIT's Vice Chancellor's Research Award for Innovation)

The power to be that one person who holds the room is within all of us - Dr Louise Mahler

While completing her awarded PhD, Louise observed a missing ingredient in corporate leadership, an understanding of the mind-body-voice connection she calls Vocal Intelligence. By helping people to develop the skills behind each she is able to create a discernible, positive change. Added to her understanding of the psychology behind high-stake engagements and the structures for handling emotion, these became the foundation of the Mahler Method, a program for leaders who wish to excel.

Mahler is an expert in body language, voice and emotion, with a PhD in business, and degrees and masters in organisational psychology as well as music. Her skills as a master practitioner in neuro-linguistic programming combine with her professional performance experience on the worldwide opera stage to give her a unique perspective on what presence and authority entail.

  Online Community

This SIG is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved in the SIG and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other SIG resources will also be posted on the online community.
