My guest this week says that “If all the world’s a stage” the greatest role you ever get to play is yourself. She applies the principles of ‘Great Performance’ from her 25 years’ experience in the world of theatre to ‘Great Performance’ on the business stage. She connects leaders with the energy of inspiration that great performances give us – to feel more alive, more courageous, more optimistic and more galvanised. Using key principles from her book about performing greatly as yourself she ignites leaders to pull back the safety curtain of corporate conformity and step into the spotlight of their fullest authentic presence and unique voice. Her global clients describe her as a transformational energy conductor who offers an irresistible invitation to shine in every role they play.
