I recently took a Present Yourself! workshop with The Growth Company in Manchester, helping a group of their members build confidence through comedy.
Late last year I took part in their ‘Spark 2 Scale’ programme – to help grow my own business, and it’s been a real boost for my networking and marketing. So it only made sense then for me to then approach them at the end and offer the service they’d helped me develop in return.
The idea for ‘Present Yourself!’ was born out of the stand up comedy class I had been teaching, and has slowly ‘iterated’ from there over the last 2 years. Slowly adding in ‘bits’ from other disciples such as personal development, solo improvisation and side coaching, and clarifying what it is – and what it isn’t. It’s great finally see growth myself, the help running the event the feedback on the day was incredibly rewarding.
Feedback from the event:
“I came away with more confidence, and an understanding that I can talk about topics that I’m passionate about in a way to engage the audience without losing them … probably one of the most rewarding growth hub events and totally valuable use of my time.”
“Brilliant – straight away comfortably out of my comfort zone!”
“Really enjoyable. Got a lot from it. Hope to implement in my workplace.”
“It will push tour boundaries, but well worth it.”
“Amazing use of 3 hours to develop confidence & presentation skills.”
