    GET TO THE POINT!

    Influencing Through Concise Communication


    Join Leadership Napa Valley for exclusive access and pricing for this leadership skills program facilitated by our Program Director, Mary Rezek.  This event is a fundraiser for Leadership Napa Valley, Mary has generously donated her time and expertise to facilitate this workshop. 


    Workshop Option #1

    Friday, March 8, 2024; 9:00 AM-Noon

    $100-Dues Paying Alumni and Class 36 

    $125- General Alumni

    $150- General Public



    Workshop Summary:

    Influence is an essential component of leadership. A person’s position in an organization and the power it gives them is not always enough to motivate or inspire action. Even more critical is their ability to influence people by getting to the point, quickly. 


    The “Get to the Point” program accelerates a person’s ability to present complex information in a simple, clear and understandable way to manage and influence other’s expectations. If you are a person who rambles, talks in circles, shares too much information instead of just answering the question, if you struggle with being concise, succinct and clear about what you want and why, this workshop is made for you.  


    During the workshop you will learn and practice how to:

    • Apply the 45 Second Fast Track methodology for consolidating information.
    • Practice projecting confidence and competence when speaking to different stakeholders
    • Learn when and how to contract and expand information
    • Maintain credibility when you don’t have the answer
    • Understand the impact of content overload
    • Redirect and recover when rambling
    • Engage in live practice with direct feedback

    Join us for a special preview of The Real Housewives of Napa Valley and to support two local non-profits at Leadership Napa Valley Night at Lucky Penny.

    Five "real housewives" are living a famous life in the famous Napa Valley and beyond. Their reality show is a popular hit - or is it? When the Huzzah Network decides to cancel the show, they embark on a do or die mission to raise the ratings and hang onto their posh lifestyles. The new musical parody is the latest from the writing team of Barry Martin and Rob Broadhurst, creators of Lucky Penny's musical hits "A Napa Valley Christmas Carol" and "Saving Santa."  Barry Martin is a graduate of Leadership Napa Valley.
