Invest in your company and enhance your team’s ability to communicate with influence

Stacey has trained and presented to thousands to rid business leaders of bad body language habits and to choose words wisely in the financial industry to the healthcare industry to government and everyone in between. Stacey involves the audience in interactive exercises, inviting eager audience members onstage to demonstrate influence skills and techniques they can immediately use, both personally and professionally.
As a corporate speaker, mentor and author, Stacey has had the unique experience of partnering with top executives and leaders to help them see through the eyes and ears of their listeners when they communicate. Often, the result is very different from what these leaders might expect. The insight is life-changing: To truly excel as a communicator, you must learn to see yourself as others see you.
Call it her “a-ha!” factor. Participants enter sessions “not knowing what they don’t know,” then leave with greatly heightened self-awareness to begin enhancing their influence Monday to Monday. Stacey reminds us that the practice of influence also needs constant fine-tuning to improve.

Success Stories

  • “I could not be happier with how the virtual training is going. I’m getting all 50+ salespeople through this year, and we’re changing our coaching forms and common agenda docs we use with clients to use and reinforce what the teams are learning. I’m very glad I decided to make this investment. I think this will pay big dividends for year to come.”

  • Stacey Hanke Inc has long been a valued partner in our leadership development initiatives. Because an important focus for us is helping our established and emerging leaders refine their influence skills, the Stacey Hanke Inc programs play an important role in our strategy. When face-to-face events were limited in 2020, Stacey Hanke Inc provided well-designed virtual solutions that were every bit as effective and engaging as the conventional classroom experience.”

  • “I will be honest, I was nervous about how effective this course would be, given it was 100% virtual. The instructor did a wonderful job of keeping participants engaged and active despite us all being at different locations and having the "itch" to check-in on work.”

She drove home the value of consistent delivery of a message in every opportunity. From internal meetings and discussions, to formal speeches at conferences.

  • I came in skeptical, believing this was just another two-day seminar that was impinging on my already full plate of work.  I spent two of the most worthwhile days of my career. I learned more about myself in two days than I would have ever believed possible. I am truly appreciative for having had the opportunity to see how small changes and stepping out of my comfort zone could result in such a huge impact.

  • I was expecting a very boring, lecture-type seminar giving me presentation mechanics and low-value minutiae. It was far from that. The seminar was interactive, energetic, challenging and, dare I say, fun! I was extremely surprised by how much I was able to improve in just two days. The taping of presentations and one-on-one coaching was extremely helpful. Great investment of my time and my company’s resources.

  • Stacey is a top-notch public-speaking coach and teacher. She and her team have a solid and proven method for teaching us how to be the best communicators we can be. I experienced that training first-hand and continue to see tangible improvements in my speaking style and methods. Her strategies work, and as a result, we have had her return a number of times to share her training methods with as many people as we can at here at Johnson Controls. I highly recommend her and her team.

  • I highly recommend Stacey Hanke, Inc. They’re clearly talented and experienced communication experts. They bring an effective approach to improving the skills of their clients without attempting to change their client’s communication style. They demonstrated a unique ability to quickly and easily connect with our group, which established instant credibility in their work. I left with techniques that can be applied immediately in practice.

  • Thanks to your practical skills and techniques on enhancing my communication, my panel discussion went great! Wow, as I sat throughout the morning and watched the other panels I noticed so many distractions and problems as these individuals spoke. Your tips helped immensely, and helped me to convey confidence and knowledge in what I was speaking about.

  • As a detail-oriented engineer, my communication skills need a lot of polishing. Stacey Hanke, Inc. quickly pointed out my strengths and yet focused on the areas where I could improve to further engage my audience. For those like me, who present or speak only on occasion, this training is a must. The class is fun and is the first step in gaining the confidence you need to deliver your thoughts and to make your point. In this class, I have learned that even the most confident speakers need to prepare their materials and focus on what is important. At Wrigley, this training is one example where everyone, at any age or experience level, can further develop their job skills.
