Stagetime, Stagetime, Stagetime

When it comes to effective speaking skills, there's no substitute for literal "stage time".

A mantra which friend, Darren LaCroix, CSP, AS, World Champion Speaker, has made his own over the years.

Boy, has that message stuck...thank you, Darren!

When I ask less confident speakers how much time they've spent communicating in meetings and conversations... typically, it's tens of thousands of hours.

Ask how many they've spent "on stage" in front of a live audience... it's often a few dozen at best.

Quelle surprise: of course it's more challenging!
(for the moment)

Building up the hours is key.

So, all the more reason to encourage young people to do so EARLY in life.

Whether that's through #publicspeaking, #debating, #music, #dance or #theatre.

Which is precisely what the (fabulous) South London Youth Theatre has been doing for years.

Both our children are involved.

This year's production: "The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe", to be performed at The Peckham Theatre on Saturday 28th January 2023.

Tickets available! (See Comments for link).

Matinée and Evening shows - it promises to be fab.

Disclaimer: our daughter Freya is performing so I'm biased 😀.

See you there?!

Working with Simon really changed both my work and my academic life... building and inspiring confidence in speaking publicly as well as understanding how to build a message to deliver. Be that a business powerpoint presentation or an academic argument in a multi thousand word document.

I would recommend Simon to any individual looking to grow their skills and confidence...
