Your people are your greatest investment.

Now, more than ever, it’s time to invest in the wellbeing of your employees: their growth is your growth. Whether that’s by providing a systematic approach to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), or ensuring that you are maximising opportunities for your talents’ development,  you can be assured that supporting your workforce will boost engagement and performance and reduce turnover and absenteeism. Progress with DEI is slow: McKinsey (2020) found that hiring diverse talent isn’t enough and recommended ‘bold steps to tackle inclusion’. The boldest step you can take is including introversion into your strategy for building an inclusive workplace. Invest in your introverted employees with my signature workshop This is Me: Authentic Confidence Unlocked. In just two hours they will learn how to navigate Imposter Syndrome, limiting beliefs and anxiety, feel that they can bring their whole selves to work and understand how to optimise their natural qualities.

I help companies empower their people.

How I can help you:

#1
Workshop

This is Me: Authentic Confidence Unlocked

This two hour workshop provides a safe space for your introverted talent to discover how introversion can be a superpower and increase their confidence, so that they will be more comfortable bringing their whole selves to work.

They will learn practical tools to manage Imposter Syndrome and limiting beliefs and strategies for dealing with overthinking and anxiety, as well as resilience, to boost overall wellbeing.

Consultancy

Strategy Sessions

I offer a limited amount of bespoke consultancy:

1.  DEI: how to foster belonging, and create an inclusive work environment, for your introverted employees.

2. L&D: typically either focused on improving the content of your learning experiences, or enhancing its delivery.

Inspiration

I’m a speaker as well as a facilitator; I’ve been described as ‘dynamic’ and ‘inspirational’.

I mainly talk around the topics of: confidence, Imposter Syndrome and feeling ‘enough’; being authentic; managing anxiety and navigating a post-pandemic world as an introvert.

Get in touch if you’d like to partner with me as a speaker for your event, or you’d like me to design, or deliver, bespoke training.

 

 

Why listen to me?

I’ve been working in Learning and Development for over 20 years, and have over a decade’s experience of workshop facilitation and training trainers; I’ve worked with over 6k participants and trained over 5k facilitators across 169 countries globally.

During this time I have worked with individuals from almost every sector, from teachers to C-suite leaders, and with every conceivable size of audience.

I’ve facilitated a diverse range of workshops: from pedagogy to leadership skills; innovation and Design Thinking to change management and resilience; presentation skills to Value Proposition.

When the pandemic hit, I helped all 8k of Google’s #IamRemarkable facilitators around the globe pivot from face-to-face to online workshop delivery, proving it’s possible to create virtual learning experiences that are every bit as impactful as in-person ones.

I’ve helped countless facilitators improve their skills – and, most importantly, their confidence. 

Additionally, I have managed the onboarding of new trainers, put quality assurance systems in place and improved their performance by providing tailored feedback, as well as assisted hundreds of companies around the world scale an initiative internally.

Most importantly, I am passionate about what I do.

Without Sam we would not have been able to achieve our goals for the year. This cannot possibly capture our appreciation for the work that Sam has done, or how much she means to us. Thank you, Sam, for your AWESOMENESS and for being REMARKABLE!
