”The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you: your voice, your mind, your story, your vision.
So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can."
Neil Gaiman, Renowned English Author.

Every presenter wants to hold their audience in the palm of their hand with a performance that leaves their audience wanting more! What you have to make that happen is the power of yourself and your speech.

We all know that the way you look, sound and act are as important as what you say, however I have learned that what most people are looking for is that intangible personal quality that attracts people to them immediately. That certain something that magnetizes an audience, and makes the people feel inspired, enriched and transformed by your speech.

Sandra feels that intangible is your charisma and that the key to opening that door is to tap into your personal energy, enthusiasm and passion for touching the heart of your audience.

Sandra’s fun, highly interactive, and freeing breakout session combines story-telling, improvisation and performance skills which make you a rock star on the stage of life whether it is in presentations or daily business conversations.

You will learn to:

  1. Stifle your critic,
  2. Turn on your Energy and Enthusiasm
  3. Take your space
  4. Be creative
  5. Imagine
  6. Improvise on your feet
  7. Think out of the box
  8. Speak with passion
  9. Communicate powerfully and dynamically, and
  10. Let Happiness lead to Success
  11. What audiences are saying!
