Confidence, Presence and Influence
to help you succeed at work and thrive as a professional.

Welcome. I’m Rob Bialostocki, professional development author, coach and speaker.

After 18 years’ experience in the corporate world, I believe the biggest professional development challenges most people face today are about confidence, presence and influence. It doesn’t matter if you’re a corporate manager, a specialist, or a professional service advisor. The issues are similar.

The challenges broadly fall into three key areas, depending on your role:

Leading and Influencing Colleagues

  • How can I have more presence and impact and still be genuine?
  • How do I build a great reputation internally?
  • I want to be more influential – how do I go about it?
  • How can I have challenging conversations when I need to?

Developing Profile, Networks and Clients

  • I don’t like marketing myself – so how can I build my profile?
  • I need to build my professional network – but how do I do it without being false?
  • I’m not really a good salesperson – so how can I find new clients?
  • What’s the best way to run an effective meeting with a challenging client?

Speaking and Presenting to Audiences

  • I get nervous – so how can I become a more confident presenter?
  • How can I make sure my message gets through and will be remembered?
  • I need to present soon but I don’t have a lot of time – how can I prepare quickly?
  • How can I avoid death by Powerpoint?

Does this sound familiar? Don’t worry! I can help you find the answers to these questions and more. I’ve developed a number of professional development resources to help you influence colleagues, clients and audiences through greater leadership.
