The Influence Meeting Method

After training more than a thousand people with communication skills, and pitching thousands of story ideas in news meetings, Jaeny Baik has developed the “S-H-I-F-T System.” This 5 step system leverages the mental, emotional, and physical energies required to influence small audiences. From one-on-one conversations, to stakeholder meetings, these presentation skills are essential to pitch one’s ideas with confidence and persuasion.

This is not public speaking training. This is persuasive pitch training, a high level of specialized training which is difficult to find. These pitches are given in intimate settings, not in front of a crowd. Scenarios:

-Entrepreneurs pitching their business to investors

-Creative professionals pitching new ideas and services to a client

-Younger (millennial) employees pitching their opinions to a senior colleagues / clients

-Business owner pitching their story to the media

Jaeny Baik Media Inc is well positioned to provide this training as pitching skills are similar to video communication skills. Elements such as body language, tone, and understanding the client’s perspective, are transferable. Video is an intimate medium and when executed correctly, video correspondence is most similar to one-on-one conversations. We are now bringing Jaeny Baik’s expertise to bear on stakeholder conversations. Trainees find themselves in these situations daily, without receiving any formal training in how to better execute and pitch their ideas.


Delivery Method:

The Influence Meeting Method is 2 days of live training, with a 2 week break in between training days to complete homework assignments. By the end of this program, participants will:

-Implement new methods to build self-confidence, with the understanding that “preparation breeds confidence”

-Create stronger first impressions with enhancements to their verbal and non-verbal communications

-Connect to stakeholders in client meetings with practical strategies to read the room, re-group the room, and respond to questions on the fly


Learning Objectives:

To confidently align one’s ideas with stakeholder priorities.

To SHIFT to a positive mindset by understanding key concepts on how to connect to stakeholders, while connecting to oneself (e.g. Validation Gap, Perceived Perception Gap.)

To establish a pre-performance ritual (BBM) before heading into meetings which includes breath work, connecting to one’s body and reducing anxiety with emotional visualization.

To experience the energy output required to persuade others to agree with your ideas, and new techniques to persuasively express through body and language

To recite by memory and rehearse Jaeny’s signature “SHEEE” style of emotional expression, using body language to establish trust (eye contact, hand movements, etc.)

An understanding of higher-level performance techniques such as voice / tone, active listening, and the imperative technique to re-group attention.


Assessment Methods:

Participants complete a self-assessment, are assessed by their peers and recorded on video on day one to record their “baseline” communication skills. After homework assignments are completed, participants are recorded again on day two of training, assessed by their peers and complete a self-assessment.

The in-person training offers an opportunity to engage with the instructor, to ensure understanding of the material covered.
