Think Equal - Leanne Foy meets Laura Naylor

Published on: 27th June, 2024

This month, THINK EQUAL Project Director,Leanne Foy met Laura Naylor, Dubai 92 radio host, MC and public speaker.

What is it about public speaking that so many of us find so intimidating? Why do women feel less confident than their male counterparts when it comes to public speaking? If conference speaking, panel moderating or stage presenting fills you with butterflies, this episode is for you.

 Laura shares how a shift in mindset could be the key to feeling powerful and positive on stage. Her tried and tested techniques have helped friends and peers embrace speaking opportunities.  

In this episode, we explore how perfectionism and fear may be the reason why many women decline speaker opportunities, and why it’s these women we so desperately want on stage. With many corporate event stages lacking diversity, this is a call to female leaders to take to the stage and a call for businesses to support their female talent in this area.

 

Highlights include:

  • How to develop a confident mindset when presenting
  • The traits of confident public speakers
  • Why self belief, authenticity and preparation are your public speaking superpowers

Laura’s passion and energy are contagious.

It's a wonderful listen, we hope you enjoy it!
