AIn this talk on the oratorical skills of a variety of brilliant women from Michelle Obama to Virginia Woolf, Viv Groskop will pinpoint exactly what it is that these women do to get their audience to sit up and really listen – and then advise you how to apply their qualities to your own lives.

From Michelle Obama’s position of ‘happy high status’ and Hillary Clinton’s stillness, to Joan Rivers’s wild gesticulations and Virginia Woolf’s melodic storytelling, there’ll be so much to take away from Viv’s analysis of how these great women have captured our attention when they speak. And lots of achievable tips and exercises.

As a stand-up, a critic and an executive performance coach Viv is perfectly placed to give this talk.

“There are now so many different ways for women to own the room and command an audience, whether it’s at work or on social media. And yet still the stereotype persists that public performance is scary and intimidating, especially for women. I’m passionate about overturning that for others in the same way I did for myself” writes Viv.
