1. Voice and Speech — 21st Century Presentation Skills

We are immediately judged by the way that you speak. The voice is like a musical instrument with its own pitch, tone and resonance. Susie Johns will bring out the richness in your voice and the confidence in your character.

English as a Second Language
This module is designed to enhance the character of your natural voice, whilst improving pronunciation and enabling you to speak clearly with confidence.

Native English Speakers
Develop the power, pitch and tone of your voice. Learn how to cope with the anxiety that naturally comes with addressing an audience; how to construct your speech so that it has a narrative thread. Discover the tricks so that your speech seems spontaneous and unrehearsed and you appear calm, confident and in command.

2. Graphology

Talking Image can inspire you by using your 'Handwriting' as a springboard to analyse your life.

Are you at a personal crossroads? ˜
Have you lost your sense of style? ˜
Are you making the most of your talents and opportunities? ˜

Graphology is one of the best tools for understanding our own character and for obtaining an insight into the personality of the people we associate with. Our handwriting is not fixed; it changes as we change – even as our mood alters throughout the day. If we’re feeling happy and positive, our handwriting will be open and expansive; if we’re angry or upset, it will be tighter and more jagged. Best of all, it can reveal dormant, untapped talents that are just waiting to blossom.

We will discover hidden talents and latent potential through a complex analysis of your handwriting. Your handwriting never lies, so you will be able to focus on your virtues and face up to those negative characteristics that sabotage your aspirations.

How it works:
This module can be accessed by private consultation, Skype / Face Time or half-day workshop.
You will need to provide your signature, printed name and samples of handwriting e.g. notes, shopping lists, etc. For internet consultations, this will need to be scanned and emailed in advance.

Based on what emerges from your handwriting, Susie will develop a bespoke, practical plan of action for you which she will explore together. Whether it is just about one issue or more, she will guide and support you through the learning process so that you can emerge more confident and a better, truer version of you.

3. Walk Your Wardrobe

Walk Your Wardrobe is not just about what you wear; it is about you and becoming the person you have always wanted to be.

You might think that everybody knows how to walk; you simply put one foot in front of the other. However, how we walk reveals a great deal about your mood, confidence and status. When we walk into a room full of people, they will be making all manner of value judgements about the kind of person they think you are. Morever, you could be wearing the most expensive couture clothes, but unless you have the posture to carry them off, they'll look more 'High Street' than 'High End'.

Walk Your Wardrobe is about establing good posture and learning to maintain poise and elegance, whether you are making an entrance, crossing a room or standing, chatting at a cocktail party. Most importantly, it is about bringing out your inner confident self.

This module falls into three key areas:

Balance: In this part, we will explore body language to understand the powerful signals that your posture reveals. Then, we set about establishing your most positive body profile, using a variety of methods, including the Alexander technique. Fundamental to this is establishing your centre of gravity and maintaining balance and elegant proportions as you move, gesture or walk.

Pace: The speed at which we move is as telling as our posutre. Rapid, staccato or jagged movements come across as neurotic or lacking in confidence. This segment is about establishing the right pace for your body's natural rhythm.

Flow: The section brings it all together and you get to explore how you put all the lessons you've learned to move in a fluid, aesthetically pleasing and confident way whilst wearing a selection of different outfits.

The outcome is to shine with confidence, whether meeting royalty, giving a speech to a large crowd at a cocktail party or doing 'The Season'. These skills will remain with you for life, wherever you are, no matter who you are with.
