Well this week has been incredibly exciting as I attended a book launch of a client (and friend) Esther Stanhope.
Who’s Esther ? Esther Stanhope is known in the city as the Impact Guru. She teaches Top Execs and individuals to speak with confidence and her book is all about the fear of Glossophobia - yes big word (and its a real word) but means fear of public speaking.
Not something I’ve ever had (!!) but SO many individuals (including Esther herself once) do really get the fear. Imagine if you are a top exec and all eyes are on you in a conference hall and you just forget everything and turn red…well it happens and Esther cures people with her fabulous coaching.
The book covers everything from being confident in yourself - being ‘you-ish’ not ‘corporat-ish’, creating your own hashtag, banishing your script, how to make the audience fall in love with you (we all want that don’t we!)
I helped Esther with her wardrobe many years ago when she was starting to move from a creative relaxed style working at the BBC and I help fine tune her look to make her style ‘boardroom ready’ without loosing her Estherness…back in 2015 there was a blog on it!
See us here..
And now she’s an international high flyer and an author and I’m in her book. What an honour.
It’s such a fabulous neat little book with all of Esther’s wealth of experience mentoring, coaching, producing TOP execs, famous people. Whether you are a top exec, a teacher, a lawyer or someone who has stopped themselves climbing the ladder for fear of speaking…this book is for you.
Here’s the front cover - buy it on amazon..
And here is the chapter I helped her with..
If you need help with how to look amazing in the boardroom and to avoid a Wardrobe Malfunction..give me a call..
