As well as improving my presentational skills, I now have a better understanding in offering my clients greater incentives and stronger call-to-action business proposals to work with my company.

With this entrepreneurial knowledge, I know it will enhance my enrolling skills and increase revenue for my design business.

Hi, as a self-confessed introvert I know what it’s like to have nerves and stage fright. I used to hate speaking in front of a group. Years ago I even got fired from a job because I didn’t speak up during meetings. One day I knew I had to take the bull by the horns and deal with my fears. Eventually I had the courage to become a professional singer. Over the years, as both a speaker and an international vocalist, I’ve performed and spoken in front of tens of thousands of people.

If I can do it, so can you! Take the first step by coming to one of our events. They’re fun, friendly, gentle and encouraging. Presentation skills are SO valuable in today’s society. Whether you want to get ahead at work, be more assertive during conversations, or deliver your personal message to the world, you owe it to yourself to be the best communicator you can be. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about giving yourself the freedom to be YOU.


Shola is an award-winning public speaker and an bestselling author. She has a PGCE from one of the country’s top education departments and has been teaching and training in companies, colleges and schools for more than a decade.

Feedback from our last event

Thank you for hosting the event last night. It was very rewarding and refreshing to be amongst like-minded women with a personal goal towards self-development.
I’ve already told so many colleagues about your event who want to attend the next one.
I’m sure you will be happy to hear, I am finding I’m much more readily up for engaging in conversation with people at work, usually one to one. Generally feeling less anxious about speaking up, which is quite a revelation. I even spoke to somebody in the company that I’ve hardly spoken to in nearly 10 years of being there, although, she is usually on a different floor.

I also enjoyed meeting the other women who were at the meeting, including yourself of course. Such a wonderful venue too, I’m glad the next one is at the same place.

It was great to know that many women are in the same situation as myself. I feel positive that I will develop my confidence and public speaking
Thanks so much for all this – really helpful. Tuesday evening was great: a lovely, spacious, central venue and such supportive, friendly atmosphere. Yours and Jay’s stories were really inspiring.
