 Workshop presenters:

Lynne Cantor - "Speaking without words - the power of Silent Communication"

Master the skill of silent communication; everything from your facial expressions to gestures to even what you wear. You will improve your skill as a speaker as well as being a great audience member.

We all make assumptions, both positive and negative, based on what we see and these assumptions can be hard to change. Do you know what ‘silent’ messages you give out? Do you even think about it?
To project the very best of yourself, make positive use of your non-verbal communications and make them work to your advantage.

Benefits participants will take away from the session:-

  • The key components of silent communication
  • Using the non-verbal to project an air of confidence
  • Using the non-verbal to be a better speaker
  • The impact of appearance
  • Harmony with what you say, how you move and how you look

Lynne CantorHaving travelled the world as an International Operations Director Lynne Cantor became very aware of the importance of ‘silent’, non-verbal, communication. For example, hand gestures in one country would not be appropriate in another. In 2007, when grounded back in London, she joined Toastmasters. She combined the spoken and non-spoken word, which in 2012 helped her to win the UK and Ireland Evaluation Contest. At the time she wanted a better work life balance, changed her career and worked as an Executive Presence Specialist adding ‘image’ to the non-verbal and verbal communications. 
Lynne is passionate about helping others to develop their confidence and speaking ability. Her workshop, ‘Speaking without Words’, focuses on your speaking image and non-verbal communications. Making you a better speaker without even saying a word!

Ernesto Moreno - Life Hack: Finding your purpose and working out what you should be really doing

During this workshop, Ernesto is going to help you to discover (or reconnect with) your true purpose and is going to present you with practical tools and exercises that will help realign what you do today with where you want to get to. This is not just a typical coaching workshop, but rather an unconventional insight and approach into how to hack financial reward and personal fulfilment based on personal experience and results. Some of the questions and topics Ernesto will be exploring include: What is your why and purpose? Why NOT knowing what to do with your life is perfectly OK? What should you really be doing with my life and why are you not doing it? How can you experience more fulfilment and happiness from what you do? What are your strengths and what can you do to capitalise on them? How to go about that career change you have been thinking of doing, or how to finalise take the plunge and launch your own business? Is entrepreneurship for me? This will be a rich, thought-provoking and inspiring workshop.

 Ernesto MorenoErnesto is a business consultant and serial entrepreneur who have built a number of successful businesses in retail, franchising and professional services which today employ more than 250 people. Having previously followed a conventional career working for corporates such as Atos Consulting and PwC, Ernesto decided to jump ship and pursue what he thought would be a more fulfilling and financially rewarding path as Entrepreneur and Business Coach. He became the founder of Expanding Leadership, a consulting and training company that works with Business Owners and Entrepreneurs to help them scale and grow their businesses. Ernesto is also a qualiied people development specialist, certified coach, TEDx speaker and accredited facilitator of the work of Brene Brown in courage, vulnerability and authenticity.
