Do you dread important conversations where the outcome really matters to you? Maybe the prospect of asking for a pay rise, or speaking up about the way your flatmate or partner leaves mess all over the kitchen, leaves you sick with worry and suffering sleepless nights… and you keep practising and rerunning the conversations in your head but it doesn’t make things any easier or turn out any better.

Perhaps the idea of standing up for yourself and setting boundaries fills you with dread, but you’re also sick of people walking all over you… You’re totally fed up of not being listened to in meetings at work, and wonder what you have to do to make yourself and your ideas heard and respected.

You know how much better you’d feel, more confident and self-assured, if people took what you have to say seriously, and you know deep down that not feeling heard is feeding your doubts about yourself. Most of all, you’d love to know how to convey confidence when you speak, and would kill to get the result you want from conversations and feel much better about yourself.

In this talk you will learn:

How to use your body in your favour to make you feel more powerful, and to convey the message that you mean business.
How to use your breathing to support your body and lower your anxiety levels.

The importance of the intonation of your voice and the language you use for your audience trust you and have full confidence in what you say.

How to convey what you need from difficult conversations, negotiations and confrontations in a way that is irresistible, blame free and means the other person will take notice, listen and respond well. Here I’ll be sharing a straightforward and memorable structure that you will be able to use right away.

Simple and effective structures for setting boundaries that will make reclaiming space a total breeze, even with the most difficult and demanding people.

This talk will be interactive, with several powerful and fun exercises that will help you to learn and integrate all of the above as well as meeting and connecting with others on the night. So leave your hesitation at the door come prepared to join in and learn in a very safe and supportive environment.
