for (starting) entrepreneurs

During an individual coaching session, I offer you the space and security to discover and perfect your personal style of speech. In addition, I support you with practical tips to truly become a natural speaker.

line management and marketing

For everyone that needs to present a lot in the company, for co-workers, managers or customers. Learn to do this self-assured, but in a natural, authentic way. On a regular basis managers and other staff members are being assessed. Dare to make your department very visible within the organisation. Or keep motivating, fascinating and committing your team, by presenting the right message.

For board members and inspirators

CEO’s often give presentations where a lot is riding on. Important is to have a clear structure of what drives you and what you have learned as CEO.
Through that you connect with your audience and it gets easier to guide them further. A speech contains three elements: content, form and presentation.
With a speech you should not just deliver a message with your audience, it is also the perfect possibility to positively impact your own reputation. Make the listeners see you as leader.

INDIVIDUAL COACHING

During an individual coaching session, I offer you the space and security to discover and perfect your personal style of speech. In addition, I support you with practical tips to truly become a natural speaker.

Workshops

It is possible to participate in a workshop as a group (up to 10 people). During an hour and a half I will introduce you to my method of working.

Training

Even in these trainings, I consciously keep the group small. This ensures everyone gets the attention they deserve. Theory and practice are interspresed, so everyone can practice a lot with each other.

Testimonials

  • “I was given the opportunity to share a bit of my life story combined with an idea worth spreading for a TEDx event. It was needed to dig deep to have the courage and not sound monotone. My first tryouts were flat, missing passion/feeling and dedication. It was clear that I needed help. I found my help in Cyrille who taught me to give color to my presentation and push boundaries. After only 3 sessions with Cyrille I evolved from a boring speaker to an almost natural. The end result was beyond what I had dare to dream. It went perfectly and came with many compliments. All my gratitude goes to you Cyrille! ”

    -David Wauters, Senior Manager International, ICT, Tommy Hilfiger

  • “I can not present. That thought always came in my mind for a presentation. The uncertainty, the fear of being judged, was about. It began when I had to present a number of teachers at high school. I thought they had a negative picture of me and I did not dare to do my story. Much later I found out that this was not true at all, it was my thoughts. I resisted myself here. At this moment, I often have to present my work. I do this with great pleasure. I have overcome my fear thanks to my presentation coach. By Cyrille, I realized that I knew what I wanted to tell. It's all in me, I know my story. She not only made me realize that I can be confident in a group, but I can do more than I thought. Now I can share my story with my customers, in my unique way. I have learned that self-awareness and control, from someone who shares her passion experience, can make a person blossom. That's what Cyrille did for me.”

    -Fatima Ouazref, Product Developer Harver B.V.
