Boost your confidence: What’s blocking you?

One of the biggest problem blocking career advancement, especially among women, is the lack of confidence and self-belief.

 It makes us feel stuck, frustrated and anxious. It stops us speaking up in meetings, asking for that promotion and even applying for the role we’re dreaming of.

We’re afraid of being criticised and judged, always feeling like we need to prove ourselves and worrying if our workmates “like us”.

We turn down opportunities, because we’re afraid we couldn’t live up to sky high expectations or that other people would think less of us if we followed our heart.

Yet even if we’re selected to projects or get that promotion, we feel like it wasn’t because we’re the best, but because of pity or they “needed to fill up a quota.”

Practical and interactive session tailored to the new normal to help you to increase your confidence

To take your career to the next level, talent and knowledge is not enough. You need to have confidence to speak in social situations, convince senior management and present in front of an audience.

Boost your confidence: What’s blocking you?

In this very practical, personalised and engaging virtual or in-person session your attendees will:

  • Know what the most common fears causing anxiety and lack of confidence are
  • Understand what is really blocking them PERSONALLY to get to the next level
  • How to develop more clarity on what they want to achieve
  • Five practical methods to overcome these fears
  • Three simple, actionable steps to implement straight away in the workplace

This session is tailored also to virtual world. My style is authentic, funny and real. I use a lot of storytelling to put ideas in context and the format is interactive to help attendees to apply the advice in their own life. They will leave feeling positive, empowered and inspired to put what they learned in practice.

We are not born with confidence – it’s built step by step. I’m a living proof: an anxious and bullied small-town girl became an International speaker and B2B Marketing Magazine’s Top 10 list of women making the biggest impact in tech in 2019!
