Have you ever admired someone who seems so confident when they walk into a room, start chatting to people with such composure and can describe what they do with real clarity? Perhaps you’ve wished you could be like that too.
Well, you can. You really can.
If that sounds impossible to you right now, you’re not alone. Suspend your disbelief, trust and know you can do it - and read on.
You probably went into business because you’re good at what you do and have the potential to make your business a real success. You probably also know, at some level, that in order to make your business really successful you need to get out there to talk to people and to give presentations about your products or services.
But perhaps you hate the thought of it.
How else can you see it?
If you think about talking to people you don’t know or about speaking to a group with fear, try thinking of it this way:
‘There are far more people out there who need your help than you can possibly reach by word of mouth or by waiting for them to contact you. You are doing those people a disservice if you don’t step up to tell them how you can help.’
Once you make that switch in your head and decide that you’re going to do it, the rest can be learnt.
You can learn how to walk into a room and to represent yourself and your business with confidence. You can learn how to engage in conversations with people you don’t know and tell them about your business with clarity. You can learn how to stand up in front of an audience to give your presentation with composure.
Perhaps the obvious bit is about learning how to write and deliver a presentation but it’s also a lot more than that. It’s also about how you feel inside, the overall image you give and ultimately the impact you make.
What do you need most help with, either to make a start or to take you forward from where you are right now?
Do you need to learn:
how to plan and structure your message with clarity
how to deliver it with confidence
how to quieten your inner voice of doubt and to present yourself and your business with composure
I would love to help you with all or any of these.

Have you ever been put on the spot to answer a question, when you know that the answer you give doesn't give the full picture or may even be misleading?
Have you ever had to categorise things or people that don't fit neatly into any of the options available? For example, if you were asked to assess yourself for your skill on using social media and whilst you’re a whizz on Facebook you don't
To what extent does your posture affect your mood, and vice versa? Is one more powerful than the other?
The truth is that they have an ongoing mutual impact on each other, so trying to identify which is more important is a bit of a chicken and egg situation.
It’s easy to overlook how small changes in posture can affect your mood. How do you sit or stand when you're feeling confident and
Have you ever taken in a role that was previously fulfilled by someone who had done a great job, been really popular, or worse still, both?
Perhaps the others in the organisation didn't want that person to leave and weren’t too open to you as the new post holder.
It can be a daunting task, not helped when colleagues and friends remind you that you have big shoes to fill.
