Have you ever been captivated by a speaker; either in a live setting, or even just watching a TED talk on YouTube?
If you wondered where that magical connection you felt came from, do you know you can achieve the same effect yourself? Yes, we all have the ability to speak to the hearts of our audience members; even if we are new to speaking or very nervous.
If you can connect with your heart, then you can connect with the hearts of others. It really is about authenticity. When we speak from the heart, it has a kind of resonance with others that just cannot be ignored.
And it can't be faked either. Subconsciously, we all know if a speaker is sharing from their heart or not. Have you ever listened to someone and felt kind of 'icky', like they were trying to sell you or sway you on purpose? That's the difference. When you are honest, open and authentic, people feel this on the subconscious level.
I know this myself as someone who was trained for television and the stage. I've given plenty of talks in my time, including two for TEDx, and I'm currently planning a third for them. You can see some of my speaking highlights below. The ones that really touch people are the ones where I share something of myself. Something real, honest, and even vulnerable.
Of course, the technical skills of speaking are important too. When you can structure your message, weave in your personal story, and deliver it articulately, then you can connect with more people in a way that lasts.
So if you would love to get your own message out their as a confident and memorable public speaker, then I have something awesome for you.

Speak From The Heart
Weekend speaking workshop - London, October 28th-29th
Having been on Oprah, Dr Oz, and This Morning on iTV, and with my live speaking experience including TEDx, ELEVATE and Expert Empires, I feel like it's time to pass the baton on to you.
Over the course of the weekend, I am going to take you through the process of crafting and delivering every talk that will touch the hearts of your audience and make you memorable to them.
We will cover:
- Content: the 'what' of your talk. Constructing the whole piece; from sharing your own narrative to weaving in the message you wish to deliver.
- Journey: The energy and flow of your presentation. Timing and structure, from a strong start to an impactful finish.
- Delivery: From pitch and pace, to the body language that helps you to "turn up the volume" and how show that you mean what you say.
- Connection: The subtle language of heart-based connection. Choosing words that penetrate the heart, speak to the subconscious mind and connect with the soul.
- Feedback: The practice of performance. Andrea won't just be speaking to you - she will get you speaking to the room. This is a safe space where everyone can all practice and share feedback in a supportive way. How better to get over the hurdle of your first (or next BIG) public talk?
Get your ticket and take the first step on your journey to the stage!
