‘Present Yourself!’ was a workshop that turned into a book. It was born out of the stand up comedy class I was teaching. Over the years I iterated how and what I was teaching, Combining stand up with improv and adding from other disciples such as personal development, and NLP. Since launching it in 2016 I’ve delivered workshops for hospitality, digital agencies and universites across the UK.
