Your impact in the first 20 seconds is determined by

  • Body language and image
  • Voice  
  • Words  

So you must look and sound as if you know what you are talking about!

Imagine this – you walk up to the podium, take a breath, look at your audience……before you’ve even opened your mouth the audience have made judgements about you.  They’ve assessed the way you walk and stand, they’ve made assumptions regarding your clothes/hair/facial expression and they’re working out how composed or confident you are.  Those first few seconds are vital.  You only get one chance to make a first impression – so it’s crucial that you know how to make the most of every opportunity.  Giving you guidance and techniques is where I can make a huge difference to your first impressions.
