Have you ever felt that you don’t get the recognition and profile you deserve?
Have you ever wondered what you could achieve if you had the courage to put yourself out there more? To speak up in meetings? To put more video content online? To present more effectively? To be a speaker at an event? To become a lot more visible than you are now?
Has your mind ever gone blank in a job interview? Do you struggle to present without notes? Do you find it hard to marshal your thoughts into something simple and memorable? Do you find it a challenge to write articles or social media posts?
You don’t need more qualifications and experience to get more profile in your career.
Forget endless cv-rewrites, psychometric tests and new portrait photos.
Forget traditional career advice and fruitless letters to recruitment agencies.
If you would like to build your profile and confidence, maybe change your job, build a new career, launch a new freelance business or switch to something else, then this is the workshop for you.
At this workshop I will draw on a combination of 25+ years of profile-building, interviews and transformational coaching to offer a profile-building strategy that starts with discovering who you really are and what you’d really like to achieve. A simple, 5-step process to give you clarity, consistency and confidence in showing up as your authentic self.
The five most important strategies to grow your personal profile and build 10/10 confidence in your career and your direction in life.
The #1 reason you are holding yourself back from building more profile or being happy where you are.
The biggest opportunity to create transformation in your career profile and future.
The secret to building greater career profile without investing time and energy in things that just don’t serve you.
Where you should be putting time, effort and thought into building your profile and how to convince people of your value. Without having to look for ever more experience, qualifications, courses, networking events and interview techniques.
How people with a strong career profile show up and get stuff done, seemingly without any effort at all.
AND… how to do all of this whilst also discovering when you are at your best and living a more purposeful life.
This workshop will point you towards the things you need to do for yourself to start the journey towards a more visible you.
Getting more personal profile is entirely possible. And you don’t need too much more than a shift in the way you think.
This unforgettable workshop could just be the start of your journey to an inspired, confident and authentic you.
WHO AM I AND WHY AM I DETERMINED TO SERVE YOU POWERFULLY?
I’m an award-winning PR and events veteran, who spent decades helping companies and their leaders to raise their profile. My career involved working with everyone from CEOs and Board Members to politicians and celebrities.
But as an “extrovert trapped in an introvert’s body” I also had to overcome many challenges to make a successful career – including hundreds of media interviews, public presentations, panel appearances, published articles and chairing important meetings.
I know what it’s like to push through fears, blocks and uncertainties as well as honing personal tips and tricks to effective communication and personal presentation.
I’ve been a certified Coach and Mentor for 6 years as well (ICF ACC Associate Coach) so I can help you develop a powerful mindset in addition to the hard communication skills and knowledge to accelerate your own personal belief, confidence and profile.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The workshop will be interactive an intimate.
Please bring a positive mindset and an open mind!
See you soon!
