WHO WE ARE
three young professionals
Naomi and Helena are freelance consultants in PR and the public and third sector respectively, and Alice is an actress and trained voice coach.
Each of us has experienced our own public speaking nightmare… Naomi once cried giving a presentation to two people at Uni. Helena lost her composure in the middle of an interview. Alice forgot her lines in a one-woman show.
Having those experiences could have made us lose confidence and faith in our abilities.
Instead, we identified what was holding us back in these scenarios - fear and our negative internal narratives. And we recognised that is the case for millions of others.
So, we have spent the past few years developing our public speaking survival guide. Now, we want to share with you our stories of how we learnt to manage our anxieties, and even enjoy public speaking.
Most importantly, we want to demonstrate that you can do this, too.
We are not proposing to be slick and seasoned motivational speakers.
We are three young women who are hugely passionate about building confidence in others. And, most importantly, we find this fun!
“You have a really authentic rapport - the combination of you guys and your different backgrounds provides variety and really holds the attention of the participants."
“You are all very passionate about what you do and it shines through”.
We like to do things differently
The workshops began in Naomi's living room to create a safe and relaxed space.
We have replicated this atmosphere and approach down to the smallest detail, in particular in our choice of an extra-special venue.
We are staunchly anti-corporate and committed to making it a fun and empowering experience.
“Sometimes you go to these things and you meet the trainer and you can't decide whether they’re a genius or a B.S. artist. You go in open-minded and willing because you have to; you take a bit from the session, but by the afternoon you can't rule out if they might be an overpaid chancer, and maybe you are just a tiny bit bored of the trainer after lunch. That's been my experience of these things prior to this workshop”.
"The relaxed and conversational tone of the day meant that while I came away with a lot of learning, I didn’t feel like I was on a course."
"A very relaxed and friendly vibe, putting me at ease from the very beginning."
“The venue was great fun too – lunch, tea, cake, prosecco – amazing."
“Great fun from start to finish.”
FEAR AND EXCITEMENT
Fear and excitement can be the same feeling
We will help you to find enjoyment in communicating your passions.
“The 'light-bulb' moment for me was when you pointed out that fear and excitement are, of course, two sides of the same coin."
