At our first event, way back in September, we discovered that may of the BBL community suffer to some degree with a lack of confidence and/or imposter syndrome. Luckily we happen to know the perfect person to help us with this…

We’re so excited to have the awesome Communication Coach, Jon Torrens, joining us at March’s event, to discuss communicating with others in a confident way.

As a former stand-up comedian Jon knows a thing or two about confident communication, and we feel he is perfectly placed to guide the BBL community towards tackling imposter syndrome and getting out there in a confident manner.

If you feel that imposter syndrome or a lack of confidence is holding your business back then please come along and join us.

Here’s Jon’s website address and Bio if you’d like any more information:

Jon's Bio:
I’ve worked as a designer (and experienced the joy of deadlines) at games companies including Sony and Electronic Arts, and as a professional stand-up comic for a few years, so I know how to engage and motivate. Occasionally I can be funny too.
Now, as a coach and speaker, I teach effective communication, using my personal skills to both show and tell. I deliver training for a range of clients in London and Cambridge, including Foster + Partners and Cambridge University.
Unique insights from the worlds of computer game design and stand-up comedy enable even the most introverted of my clients to deliver presentations that delight and motivate their audiences.
