Keynotes - Emma Stroud
A keynote is a speech or presentation that establishes the main underlying theme of a conference or event, usually to a large audience. The duration is usually 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Improvisation – a vital tool for business success
The ability to 'think on your feet' is not only valuable but vital to your business success. Without the confidence and savoir faire, you can really be limiting your business growth.
We improvise everywhere - conversations, meetings, interviews, presentations and sometimes without realising it. All we need to do is develop these everyday skills further to see positive, measurable change in the success of professional interactions.
In this talk Emma helps you explore these improvisation skills and shows you how developing them can positively influence the way you deliver your messages and grow your business in dynamic ways.
Humour in business – how using humour can make you and your business memorable
What stops you from using more humour in your business? Despite what many people think, humour is an essential business tool. In this talk, Emma dispels the myth that business should always be ‘serious’ and that if it’s fun or funny, it can’t be effective. She’ll also show you how using more humour helps you create positive and memorable meetings, presentations and pitches that yield profitable results.
Public speaking or death – which would you prefer?
Studies now show that many people fear public speaking more than they fear death! How has this happened and how can we break this fear? In this talk Emma busts negative myths around public speaking and gives the audience tips and tools to help them start to love delivering their top content without the anxiety and sleepless nights.
What is ‘leadership presence’ and why should we want it? In this talk, Emma breaks down what leadership presence is, how it can be cultivated, and why it is crucial for both business and personal growth. Whether you are already a leader in your field, want to become one or want to bring leadership skills into your current team role, the leadership presence talk will give you powerful tools to boost your success.
Networking – do it and do it well
Networking, both internally and externally, is vital for your career and business success and could be that key step to gaining your biggest client yet or your next promotion. Emma will break down the ten key skills needed for success in business networking, so you can fast track your career or develop new business horizons.
Confidence – how to grow and keep it
Confidence is a slippery thing, isn’t it? One day you’ve got it and the next it seems to have disappeared. In this talk, Emma challenges the idea that we are born with confidence or that it’s part of a certain personality, and gives the audience a range of self-awareness and confidence-raising tools they can use anywhere, anytime. By reducing common fears and negative beliefs about performance, Emma will leave the audience feeling inspired so they can perform confidently and effectively in each situation.
