Evolve were approached by the Head of Internal Communications at Ageas to support the HR Management team in taking their existing strengths as speakers to the next level. Given their requirements, this was the perfect fit for our flagship public speaking course, Authentic Impact.
Meet Evolve’ Q&A session
We had a relaxed ‘Meet Evolve’ meeting which allowed them to get to know their coaches and ask any questions, whilst also giving us the opportunity to understand their aims for the course.
Personal goal setting session
We then had 1-2-1 goal setting calls with each individual to explore their personal goals, which they may not wish to share amongst the wider team, to help make the course an effective experience for them.
Delivering the Authentic Impact course
Our Authentic Impact course was delivered over 2 days by Donna and one of Evolve’s industry specialists, International Journalist and Broadcaster, Angela Barnes. It provided an encouraging environment that was highly interactive and tailored to meet their individual and team goals. We took the team through our speaking principles and strategies, culminating in an opportunity to apply these tools and deliver a 5-minute message on a topic of their choice.
Ageas’ team works remotely most of the time, so the course was a great opportunity for team building. It helped them discover their natural strengths as communicators and let their authentic speaking styles shine. We focused on overcoming ‘the fear’ of public speaking by exploring the brain science and evolutionary factors behind it, and working on methods to help understand and manage their pre-speaking nerves.
Angela was on hand to share her own top tips too, having become a regular face on our TV screens at Sky News, Euronews and Good Morning Britain. She was able to share an invaluable insight into the broadcasting industry’s best kept secrets for managing those ‘pre-live’ nerves, as well as how to build an impactful message that captures the audience.
All attendees were also taught how to utilise Evolve’s unique storytelling tool to confidently deliver a message that engaged with their audience.
To support the team in achieving their future speaking goals, Evolve provided post-course support which involves ongoing 1-2-1 speaking coaching and a group workshop to help with preparation for a company conference in June.
“Brilliant and inspiring. I loved the relaxed tone and pace, and learning how to turn fear into excitement.”
“I really enjoyed the interactive learning style. The tools and framework were described in a way that allowed us to put those into practice.”
“Excellent programme with so much to learn.”
“Donna's enthusiasm is infectious!”
"Great experience. Nicely paced and delivered course, leading to participants preparing and delivering our own presentations."
