Event description
Over grazing platters, we'll be helping people manage nerves & anxieties at a steady pace, to build confidence in speaking to crowds.

About this Event

Use your vulnerability as a tool to be more confident in communicating as yourself

Speaking & Grazing is a totally relaxed and hugely entertaining environment that encourages people to explore the edges of their comfort zones. As a guided open-mic night, the crowd is the evening’s entertainment, but guests are invited to participate as much or as little as they want. When it comes to communicating, listening is a key factor to being able to do it well, so come along prepared to listen and learn.

Help bring out the courage in friends or coworkers.

Buy two tickets and take home a bottle of Mudgee wine each.

This is a taster for the course in September, at this workshop with food and drinks you’ll get:

  • An energy-boosting SWIISH Supergreen Superfood Powder shot
  • A delicious SWIISH grazing platter to share with like-minded people
  • An opportunity to practice speaking in front of a non-judgemental crowd (as little or as much as you want)
  • Lessons in how to use vulnerability, anxiety & emotions
  • New perspectives on what confidence really is
  • Ideas on how to stop worrying about what people think
  • An understanding of how to express your authentic self
  • A little red wine with dessert at the end
  • A goodie bag with a 10% discount on SWIISH wellness products

If you can't make this workshop, I am running the same introductory events on the 12th of June & 19th of June.

Who is this for?

Whether you're a total beginner and want to build confidence at a steady pace, or you've got experience under your belt but need to improve your confidence and presence, this will suit both levels by helping you learn to manage nerves.

Grazing

What you put in your body has an effect on how you feel. That’s just the way it is! I believe that genuine confidence can only be brought to life when you feel your best. Health = Happiness = Confidence. That’s why I’m putting on a delicious and nutritious spread for guests, with recipes from health and wellness sisters, Sally and Maha, from SWIISH.

SWIISH is all about helping and inspiring people to lead balanced and happy lives, with a strong emphasis on fresh, wholesome food. This is why I’ve chosen to create from their Simple & Lean cookbook.

Approach

There’s not a one-size-fits all to building a speaking style, which is why building authenticity is a key component to these workshops. I want to help you find a way to accept, understand and be yourself. I try to draw out a person’s natural style by using playful techniques that make people smile, laugh and feel. I find that when we are light-hearted we're more impulsive and intuitive. As I said, no one is forced to participate but I do ask that you come with your guard down. Vulnerability is a strength, not a weakness. I promise.

Structure

The doors open at 6pm and the workshop runs from 6.30 – 9.30pm. It's broken into two halves:

1: The first half we meet, greet, and eat; talk about common and limiting beliefs, explore confidence boosting techniques and play some impromptu speaking games.

Short break

2: The second half gets into energy building exercises with optional speaking opportunities at the end. We’ll finish with dessert and a little wine because wine not? 🥮🍷

The venue closes at 10pm.

Coach

I'm Jessica O’Reilly and Comfort is for Wimps started as a storytelling blog in 2014. I found my stories by pushing myself outside my comfort zone to uncover the braver version of myself. What I found was absolutely key to my confidence-building was my ability to repurpose anxious energy and let myself feel vulnerable. I now use a guided approach to help others use nerves and vulnerability to feel more confident in who they are when they communicate. I teach at a very steady and easy pace, creating a very supportive, and always entertaining, environment. Read more.
