Energised the room and enabled creativity to flow

After the initial call with Trisha to help us facilitate an internal hackathon she immediately understood the brief and I had full confidence that she was the right person for the job. It was very easy to work with her in preparation to the event and during the hackathon. Trisha’s natural abilities in communication and empathy ensured the event ran smoothly and on time. She successfully adapted to the style of the event and type of audience. The hackathon was a success due to the ‘safe space’ that Trisha curated, which energised the room and enabled creativity to flow. I’d highly recommend Trisha.

Inspiring the next generation of professional communicators.

Dr Joyce Costello , Programme Leader

It was a chance for the marketing, advertising and PR students to learn first hand about many key elements they need to consider when communicating with emotions. It is great when a BU alumni inspires the next generation of professional communicators.

I could visibly see lightbulbs of realisation in peoples faces

Paul Hamblin , Producer Treehouse Digital Ltd

Trisha's talk at Cameras and Coffees was fantastic, there were several times that I could visibly see lightbulbs of realisation in peoples faces. As always she brought copious energy to the room and was really open to hearing other peoples opinions and questions. Thanks Trisha!!

You talked 'with us' rather than 'at us''

Your approach enabled us all to 'open up' very quickly and the insights you gave, peppered with a great sense of humour, allowed our self-reflection to go further than it probably normally would have done. You talked 'with us' rather than 'at us'

I look forward to continuing the link with you going forwards.

Escaping the Cage of Self-Doubt
A very real instructional story (funny in hindsight)

It is never too late!

My personal story has a happy ending - this talk is inspiring I promise!

Audiences appreciate the resonating stories, the humour and the gems of wisdom from a journey that starts in 1973 when I landed in a huge boy's school - one of just 6 girls taken into the 6th form! 

From art school to a career in advertising - to setting up as a freelance actor and speaker and starting a coaching business when nearly 60 years old - fighting against impostor syndrome every step of the way... but I didn't realise that until I was nearly 60!

This talk shares key lessons that will apply to anyone wanting to escape the cage of self-doubt and be enjoy the freedom of self-belief.

"Massive ‘yay’ to this event – cleared so much of the feelings I have had all my life!"

"I though Trisha was a fabulous speaker – so insightful and inspirational  I look forward to future events."

"A great presentation by a brilliant facilitator. I feel more confident and have a better outlook already!"

So many students took such a lot away from the day.

The day was so worthwhile and I know that so many students took such a lot away from the day. I would like to recommend you to the Head of 6th form and their enrichment coordinator who is always looking for speakers and guests that might come and support some of the other activities.

it really struck a chord

Annie Elston , Elston Holgate Consultancy

Thanks for a fantastic workshop today! It has given me lots to think about and was really refreshing to know we all get negative thoughts! When you said about comparing other people’s websites and then giving up based on false beliefs, it really struck a chord-I was literally doing that last night!
