First I want to start with a thank you. A huge thank you for your support…
This time 3 years ago I was running my final Presentation Profits Intensive for the foreseeable future. It’s our flagship, transformational event on the business of speaking.
At that time, Greg and I had been trying to have a baby for a couple of years. We’d been de-toxing, acupuncturing, the works. I didn’t share it publicly at the time as it was too difficult, but in March 2012 we had a miscarriage of little twins. In processing this tragedy we listened hard to our souls and they were saying take a break from training speakers. Take a break from seminars. Rest.
We decided that the 2012 events would be our last speaker training events for the foreseeable future… “Until further guidance” was the way I viewed it.
And within 2 months of completing that training we conceived. We had moved back to the UK (our soul home for sure), took a sailing holiday in Greece, and, well, I’ll spare you the details- but our little Button started to grow!
And now we have our gorgeous, funny, smart little garden-loving boy, James.
Parenting is mad, and fun, and did I mention MAD! But we love it. And I’ve been very grateful to be able to give it my all for as long as I felt called.
And many of you may have noticed we launched my new calling – the new business, One of Many, last year too.
Now- as I said earlier, I’ve been listening hard to the universal signs with regards my speaker training seminars. And it seems that the time has come!
My little boy has his feet firmly on the ground, our new project is flourishing better than I could have imagined…
And all this time… over 3 years…
Not a week has gone by where we haven’t had multiple emails or phonecalls asking “When is Joanna’s next Speaker Training Seminar?”
Sure- we’ve had all our amazing online programs continuing, but when it comes to learning the business of speaking, nothing beats experiencing it live and in person right?
So… the time has come!
Over the last few weeks I’ve been working on a re-energised, re-invigorated new look for the business to reflect my new perspectives.
(You can see a sample on the Shift Speaker Training Facebook Page here)
We’ll be rolling it out over the websites in the coming weeks.
But the most exciting update is that on the 4th and 5th of September I will be holding my hugely popular “Presentation Secrets” 1-day Speaking Business Breakthrough events in London.
(That is a bit confusing as I read it, so let me explain: It is a 1-day training. You choose if you come on the Friday or Saturday!)
We are not going to be releasing tickets to this event until the 20th of July. So this is just a heads up at this stage. A save the date if you will.
But the bottom line of all this is a massive thank you. You have been a great supporter of our work; whether it be just in the last months or since we launched in 2008.
And you are continuing to step up every day and shine your light, and spread your message. The difference you feel called to make in your heart is important. So thank you for allowing me to be part of your growth.
And I deeply hope that we can re-connect at one of the events in London in September. Pop it in the diary and I’ll send you more details in a couple of weeks.
