    Brand ‘Me’
    Building self-awareness of the vibes we often send unknowingly - how you carry yourself says a lot about you

    Moment of Influence
    At your best whatever the situation – understanding how to connect and communicate naturally with impact when everything around you might seem unnatural!

    Mind and Body Matters
    How the mind and body reacts to different situations - tools and techniques to reboot and perform, to use stress positively, feel and be grounded whatever the pressure

    Being your own Best Friend...
    not your own Worst Enemy

    Recognising unhelpful, subconscious triggers and being able to turn these around.

  • Engage Management Details

    Personal Presence
    Cultivating a presence that holds others’ attention making your message more powerful and engaging: contrary to popular belief, presence is not something you have to be born with!

    Moment of Influence
    Being performance ready in any situation using the tools and techniques of performance: how to have impact, be compelling, build rapport and engage

    Mind and Body Matters
    How your voice and persona can come across under pressure – not let body/mind reactions sabotage but use nerves positively, take control and be magnetic and captivating

    Moment of Influence
    Being performance ready and at your best in any situation, especially in high-stakes interactions whether presenting, chairing, negotiating - how to connect with impact when it matters

    Being at your Expressive Best
    Experimenting further with your full (often undiscovered) expressive palate – a liberating experience

    Working the Stage
    A host of stage craft techniques for holding your audience - the power of movement (being free of podium/desk), the power of stillness and silence and… if you wish, how to provoke applause!

    Deeper into Mind and Body Matters
    At the Olympics, Steve Redgrave stated that 90% of performance ‘on the day’ depends on mind-set. Here we go deeper into the mind and body dynamics for being at your best
