Your Voice of Influence

At the heart of leadership is the requirement to find one’s true voice. It is only when you energetically and personally connect to the words you speak that you can inspire and influence others and make a difference. Working with a range of inspirational words – from the extraordinary to your key messages at work, this experiential masterclass explores taking ownership of words and making them your own with Feeling, Energy, Intention, and Connection.You’ll be safely guided and supported each step of the way. By the end of the session, you’ll have surprised and surpassed yourself in finding the voice that the world needs to hear.

  • Harness personal sources of inspiration to empower your ‘authentic’ voice.
  • Align your body and voice form a powerful instrument of expression.
  • Tune up before you turn up to be fresh, energised, and invested.
  • Use the power of intention to make your words come to life
  • Learn the process of owning your spoken content, even if you are not the author of it.
The Practice of Presence

In the words of the American poet, Walt Whitman, “We convince by our presence.”

Your Leadership Presence radiates from your unique life-force, and in its fullest flow it elevates the quality of engagement for everyone around you. Whether you lead an organisation, a team, a department, or a project, your Presence Power inspires confidence, commitment, and buy-in. In this thought-provoking, interactive masterclass I invite you into the virtual rehearsal room to explore the ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ of Presence.
Discover the power of:

  • Connecting with your ‘first environment’ – yourself - before connecting with your audience and your agenda
  • Effective, micro warm-ups to enliven yourself and ignite your creative thinking
  • Aligning your energy to your audience and objectives
  • Investing in your voice and words with intention
  • Feeling at ease owning your expertise and authority
Lead From Your Story

“Feast on your life”
(Derek Walcott)

How can I bring more of myself through those doors? How can I be more me in the spotlight? This is a burning question that leaders bring up again and again in the coaching room of personal development and performance. Afterall, before anyone can care about what you know, they need to know who you are. Your life story – that compendium of experience – is your greatest asset. When you awaken to your unique story you remember yourself, and reconnect with those energies, passions, and beliefs that shape who you are and how you carry yourself in the world.

This masterclass takes you on an archaeological dig into your life story, to bring a powerful insight or lesson up to the surface and into the light to shape and share in service to others.

  • Gather evidence of your strengths
  • Reawaken and reconnect to creativity, courage, and confidence
  • Value and honour your unique story and let it speak
  • Leverage your storytelling in service to others
Storytelling for Leaders on the Go

Information tells. Stories sell. One of the most powerful skills you need in the spotlight of leadership is the ability to inspire and motivate others through storytelling. This interactive session will fire up your ability to ‘see stories everywhere,’ and your agility in leveraging stories quickly to bring your business messages to life and serve the needs of your audiences.
Step into the virtual rehearsal room and practice:

  • Simple structures for clarity and impact
  • Being more succinct, authentic, and jargon-free
  • Safely supported improvisation for the ability to go off script and think on your feet
  • Dialling up your energy, presence, and voice for compelling delivery
  • Spotting opportunities for storytelling in your leadership role

Masterclasses are experiential, practical and 100% application-based content.

In-person half-day (4-hours) or full day (8-hour) sessions

Online sessions from 90 minutes - 3-hours
