whilst Leveraging the Power of YOU!

At our May Chapter event for 2019 you are in for an amazing treat with special guests Dr Louise Mahler CSP and Lance Miller.  Two world-class award-winning speakers who will share their insider secrets with you!

Confidence: High Wire Speaking Without a Net
Dr Louise Mahler CSP

When I came off stage recently someone said to me “That’s like watching a high wire act without a net!!”.  When you are interactive, engaging and using the excitement of comic improvisation in the moment, you have to have confidence.  Audiences need speakers that exude it from every pore, but believe me, getting it is not an accident. 

But what is confidence?  Do you already have it?  If you have lost it, how do you get it back and what do you do if you lose it in the middle of a keynote?

In this workshop we will explore confidence, your level, your techniques and how to apply them.  In this highly interactive session, I will include skills, techniques and my personal secrets for making it happen.  You will leave with a better understanding of yourself, new ways of working and maybe even. . . .  more confidence!!
(OK, we will have a laugh as well)
