“Trust based on honesty is the foundation of strong and bonding relationships.”– Mark Twain
The Covid-19 pandemic changed all our worlds over the last couple of months. This is a time of transformation and adjustment for everyone, what worked before may no longer work now. Improving our virtual executive presence will enhance our existing professionalism, build deeper connections and inspire confidence with clients and teams.
In a post-covid world, Emotional Intelligence for client-facing teams (and everyone for that matter) becomes even more important. The World Economic Forum reported that emotional intelligence would be one of the top 10 skills required to thrive in the workplace in 2020 (pre-COVID statement). In this webinar we will look at how we can tap into our emotional intelligence to build stronger relationships and deeper connections with new and existing clients.
We were delighted and blown away by the positive impact Deirdre McGinn had on our participants when she was a guest speaker as part of our Leadership Course. Deirdre was so inspiring and uplifting and gave invaluable information on leadership, taking the lead with confidence and creating a virtual presence. She not only gave expert advice but mixed it in with personal stories which made it more relatable and ultimately enjoyable. We could not recommend her more; she is simply outstanding at what she does.

Deirdre is one of those people, where once you meet them, you realize, in minutes, how truly valuable they are going to be to you. She is not only an incredible coach & mentor, but also has the credentials & vast experience to back it up. I have been working with Deirdre for over a year now & can confidently say the impact has been profound on a personal and professional level. I am profoundly grateful for her coaching & guidance. I look forward to continuing to work together.
I have worked with Deirdre on several projects across “Virtual Presence” and “Team Communication”. With her vast experience and background, she is a thought leader in this spaceand I would highly recommend her to any individual or company.
Founder of HC Collective
Deirdre and I have been working together for just over 10 months now. I was a little nervous at first as our working relationship started in April when everyone was on lockdown. However, doing these sessions virtually did not affect the impact at all. Deirdre has certainly taken me on a journey with her coaching and advice, I have become a more considerate and thoughtful leader. What I love most about her is she has a style that helps you find your own solution. In the past, I have had coaches who told instead of taught. Her no-nonsense approach works for us both and I am looking forward to working with her in the future to further improve my skills.
Deirdre is one of the most effective coaches and agents of change I have encountered in my career to date. Her commitment to enable meaningful discussions and uncover deep insights is an invaluable support when it comes to truly finding the right path forward; and she brings the perfect balance of genuine care and empathy coupled with honest, direct and challenging questions. A fantastic listener, Deidre brings a focus to every session that never fails to capture what is said and unsaid.
Highly recommend Deirdre for anyone who is looking to truly step change their career and reach their full potential and goals
EMEA Marketing Manager
Deirdre joined us a guest on our Podcast to talk about the importance of virtual presence and how to build relationships in a digital world. We saw a lot of value in the framework she has developed, especially now that business cannot be done face to face and most of our team members are working remotely. We have hired her to run a companywide workshop, where she shared best practices of virtual presence, the important of deepening virtual relationships and how to build trust in a digital world. Our 150+ team members from our UK & US offices managed to get great actionable insights from the webinar and have been successfully applying the framework in their day-to-day.

Deirdre led our Team Building Event in December. Her energy, expertise and knowledge ensured the day was not only full of great learning but brought the team together in a fun and highly motivated way. After a difficult year for everyone, this is exactly what was needed to ensure a strong end to 2020 and a great start to 2021. We are looking forward to continuing this work with Deirdre in 2021.
