Inspiring people to move confidently.
I developed an approach to public speaking training based on my performing, choreographic and movement direction background. (Read more about it here)
I hold a master’s degree from TrinityLaban Conservatoire in London. My movement expertise ranges from Contemporary Dance, Yoga and Ballet to Somatic and Authentic Movement. I have co-founded several businesses in the past, including Metaspeech, Marquez&Zangs and Creative&Live. I spoke at international conferences such as 4YFN MWC Opening Ceremony, Tedx Goodenough College, Techweek NYC.
For the past four years, I worked with growing and established businesses from GoCardless to Google as well as accelerators such as Centre For Fashion Enterprise, Geovation and Wayra. I am a guest lecturer at Cass Business School and successfully trained startups to pitch at Dragon’s Den and win the royal Pitch At Palace competition. My clients raised seed, series A and B funding as well as speaking on Ted stages and winning competition such as SXSW (V2V best speaker award). I am working closely with The Abbey Centre on their WOW Project, helping women immigrants from disadvantage backgrounds finding the confidence to step into the workplace.
I believe everyone can become an excellent speaker by finding their inner confidence. I see clients transform throughout sessions and carry on growing months and years after it. As a coach, I listen to whom I have in front of me and create sessions that respond to their needs. I often refer to my coaching style as planting seeds that my clients keep nurturing.
MOVE FOR SOCIAL IMPACT
Moving truly helps people feel confident, because it helps to feel at ease with themselves and others around them.
For the past year, I have been working with women refugees and immigrants with the Abbey Centre Charity. It has been a humbling experience as well as an eye opener on how moving and using our bodies can give us a sense of belonging in a place we are not familiar with or that we did not want to move to. After five sessions, the ten women on the programme felt they had the tools to remain calm during job interviews or to simply face day-to-day conversations outside their communities.
This is a timely issue as we see migration numbers rise worldwide. I am partnering with organisations helping refugees around the country and I am starting with The Abbey Centre, New Routes Norwich, Suffolk Refugee Support. I wish to expand my research and work with these organisations by creating a specific programmes with refugees for refugees.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
For every team training booked, a training session is delivered for refugees at a non-profit partnered organisation.
If you are an organisation that would like to be part of this initiative, please contact me.
