About the author

Combining the skills of a performing arts and business management background, Judy has spent many years unravelling the secrets of how great leaders inspire others, and now teaches these skills to leaders in major corporations. With fifteen years’ experience in developing creative training programmes and in coaching, her programmes emphasise the reconnection of mind/body processes, and ways of awakening the state of being that moves, energises and influences others.

Her cutting edge techniques, combined with an incisive, encouraging approach, have enabled many leaders to achieve great leaps in their ability to communicate and their sense of personal confidence.

A regular speaker, she has presented at the NLP National Conferences for the past three years. For more information on voice, presentation and inspirational leadership work with Judy, go to Judy’s website.
