Tell Your Story: Deliver Your Message and Transform Your Audience

I enjoyed doing the workshop! The presentation slides shared in the digital classroom were visually appealing and well organized. It was a good experience to have Francesca as a coach. She shared her expertise from the field of performances to show how one could prepare before a presentation. She also carried out her coaching in the digital classroom with ease. I benefited from the practice session where Francesca pointed out areas of improvement and provided constructive feedback. Thank you Francesca and my best wishes!

Tell Your Story: Deliver Your Message and Transform Your Audience

This workshop was a great learning experience for me. Francesca walked us through the presentation world, helping each of us understand how to improve our own skills, how to talk to a broad audience and how to express our message effectively. I would recommend to anyone to take part in this workshop in order to learn how to deliver a message in a more powerful way!

Tell your Story: Deliver your Message and Transform your Audience

I enjoyed the workshop very much. In entertaining and interesting sessions and exercises, I gained helpful new insights regarding presentation techniques and storytelling. I have learned to recognize the potential for improvements in my presentations to better lead my audience through the story and more efficiently deliver my message. The workshop was held via Zoom, which was not a problem at all, as the course contents were carefully adapted to those new restrictions and Francesca used different technical methods to compensate for the limitations arising from teaching online. Furthermore, Francesca led the workshop in a very sympathetic and motivated manner and always took the time to respond to the individual needs and questions of the participants. Thank you again for your advice that really helped me improve my public speaking.

Passionate + inspiring + motivating = Francesca

Starting at the very first second Francesca hooks her audience with her catching way to lead the workshop. She manages to find the perfect balance between input and tasks-to-do (for the participants). Her creativity and enthralling viewpoints are an enrichment for everyone. With her precise advice she enabled us to transfer her input in our action very quickly.

Thank you Francesca!

Performing under pressure

I really enjoyed the workshop and the conversations with the other researchers. The workshop was well structured and you had enough time for each exercise. Each of the exercises made me think and I learned a lot about myself. But what I liked best was the way Francesca led the course. She had a calm and open attitude and I felt very comfortable talking about my problems and feelings. You felt heard during the course and each participant was given sufficient attention.

Performing Under Pressure

This was an incredible workshop oriented for women during the period of their PhD. Francesca managed to create an open and authentic atmosphere. Such an achievement over zoom requires special skills! The given advice was very practical, and the tools from the acting field, were surprisingly relevant. Overall, it was very encouraging and helpful. It is hard to describe the value of the workshop in a few words, so I would just recommend to participate in it, if you have the chance. I would also recommend to Francesca to write a book, I would definitely buy it 🙂 Thank you

Performing under pressure

With the precious help and guidance of our lovely trainer Francesca, thanks to her targeted plan, her listening skills and empathy, her capability of processing our confuses emotions, thoughts, words and of making, out of them, a clear analysis of our doubts, perplexities, concerns and weaknesses and through frivolous but at the same time energetic exercises like powerful body posing and tongue-twisters, we were able to investigate, focus, understand, express and rationalise the main and deepest reasons why me and my 8 workshop buddies (and surely not just us…) feel uncomfortable in the spotlight and consequently we efficiently learn how to take advantage of our personal strengths, personalities and capacities in order to make every possible next stage, that we will be asked to perform on, a new comfort zone and, why not?, to enjoy speaking in public.

My last words just want to thank once again Francesca for her professional work with us and also want to encourage many other potential wonder-women to attend this inspiring workshop.

Francesca is a brilliant communication coach.  I specialize in science communication, so I am supposed to already be pretty good at giving talks.  Nonetheless, I asked Francesca for advice; she analyzed my talk and rapidly gave me very useful feedback.  Her advice has changed how I approach public speaking on many levels:  how to construct a talk, how to deliver it, how to manage audience interaction.  Francesca is truly an expert’s expert regarding communication technique.

Thank you so much for the course! I really enjoyed it a lot, your way of teaching was great. I really liked that you made everyone feel comfortable and secure so that no one was nervous to present and put him/herself out there. Also, I learned many new things about the style to present and how to build up a presentation. I really think this course will help me present my work better. And the things we learned can be used in a relaxed setting like a presentation for a science slam or ted talk, but the things we learned can also be applied to scientific talks and in teaching. And it is immediately useful since I am giving a 15 min. video course to children from 8-12 years old, so the story telling is approach is perfect! I wouldn’t have thought of this without your course!
