Event description
I am a Woman Who Speaks - How do some people stand up and speak in public, confidently, while for some it's their worst nightmare?

About this Event

Do you already enjoy speaking in public or is it something you avoid at all costs?

Would you like to start speaking in public in 2020?

Whether you love it or hate it, it is something you need to do at same stage for your career and personal development.

To explore this issue and to kick off our first WINS Bristol meeting in 2020 we are delighted to be joined by Green Party councillor Carla Denyer.

Carla has been picked to contest the winnable seat of Bristol West for the Green Party at the coming General Election. In 2018 she proposed the first Climate Emergency motion in Europe, committing Bristol to go carbon neutral by 2030. This started a wave of similar motions across the country, with over 200 local authorities, plus the UK Parliament and Scottish and Welsh governments, having now declared a Climate Emergency. Before entering politics, Carla worked as an engineer in the renewable energy industry, specialising in offshore and onshore wind technology.

Carla Denyer was elected in 2015 and represents Clifton Down ward (previously known as Clifton East). In recognition of her work on the Climate Emergency, Carla has been named politician of the year by The Big Green Politics Podcast, given the Outstanding Achievement Award by the LGA Independent Group, and was also nominated in the LGiU councillor achievement awards and the Bristol Diversity Awards.

To provide some practical tips and insights we are also delighted to be joined by Julia Cawte from Communicate with Confidence. https://communicatewithconfidence.co.uk/

Julia’s passion in life is to enable people to fulfil their true potential. After completing a degree in Psychology, she began a career as a Probation Officer in London. Here, Julia worked with a wide variety of offenders and thrived on the challenge of coaching them. Her work enabled them to move from where they were to where they wanted to be in life. After moving to Bristol she undertook numerous courses in drama, coaching, NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and Qi Gong (energy work). Now running a successful consultancy, she uses all of these disciplines when transforming people’s relationship with public speaking. Julia works with her clients to banish any fears relating to public speaking and enables them to shine when they deliver a talk or presentation. She works on an individual basis, helping people with the content and delivery of their one minute pitches, sales pitches, key notes and whatever is getting in the way of their public speaking success. She also facilitates open courses and does bespoke corporate work.

Julia wholeheartedly believes that everyone has the innate right to take up their space in the world, stand tall and be heard.
