After the 1st event (language & self-deprecation), TROUBLE MAKERS gets back with the next one: how to speak effectively in public? How to lead a meeting when you think you are going to splutter and get lost?

YOU HAVE A POINT? SAY IT.
You were going to say something, but you lost it. You didn't want to. You didn't dare, you thought it was a stupid question. Then someone said it. It was a very good point that was needed to be taken care of, and someone else got the credit. Now you feel stupid. Speaking up is somehow

1 – Discover how it is a very gendered phenomenon to speak up. Why does sometimes it feel so complicated to make your point? Why do we (women more than men) dislike so much speaking "publicly"? Where does it come from? In companies, movies, ads, pop culture… how does our environment tend to push us towards only one direction?

2 – Women tend to speak 75% less when they're outnumbered.
What are the consequences of women not speaking or expressing themselves – especially within business? How does the fear of speaking up actually holds women back from getting higher in hierarchy and management?

3 – Can I get over my lack of confidence when it gets to speaking up? YES. Get tips and techniques to express yourself when you want/need it; or when it is actually needed.
Learn about language tricks
Unlock your brain into re-learning

4 – Get further in with extra resources about public speaking
