Facilitation, Workshop Design & Training
WORKSHOP DESIGN & FACILITATION
As a former CSR and Communications Manager in a large energy group, EDF Group, in the UK and France, I am very aware of communications challenges in the workplace.
I co-design and facilitate meetings, webinars and workshops, on/offline:
COMMUNICATION in the WORKPLACE
(1-1 and small groups)
As a language expert and certified Neuro Language® coach, I design and facilitate workshops and short courses on themes such as:
Finding your voice in English in a global context, Writing Business English, Improving your Emails, Job interviews, Sustainability, Climate and Circular Economy in English, Climate Fresk game in English (B2+ level), Improving your spoken English, Pitching, Public Speaking Coaching and TEDx training (7 TEDx speakers coached), Unblocking your confidence in English/French/German. I often combine my English coaching and sustainability/circular economy expertise if of interest.
SUSTAINABILITY and CIRCULAR ECONOMY
(Groups and teams): see this page for my offers.
See Testimonials for references.
Pricing: email me for a needs analysis and with your budget range.
Editorial, Storytelling & Translation
EDITORIAL and STORYTELLING
I help organisations produce meaningful, concise and impactful copy in English.
Specialities: General Business, HR, CSR, Sustainability, Circular economy, Waste, Arts and Culture.
Pricing: per hour, half/day, project/document-based depending on your project.
TRANSLATION and PROOFREADING
The digital world means translation often happens via Google translate and other tools. However, if you want a professional, tailored service, and you’re producing a document for a high-end audience where nuance, register and tone are key, this is unreliable.
My service includes checks with clients, context and audience/client-specific language use (English vs US English for instance). I have an Oxford first class degree in French & German literature, including translation, and 20 yrs living in France, 18 in the UK, and 7 in Germany, and work in all three: this ensures I have a feel for each language, for nuance and potential linguistic ‘faux pas’.
Recent projects: translating a book on art history from German into English, a study on Circular Economy actors in Europe into English, legal and HR contracts and reports into English and French, Linked in articles, art catalogues, proofreading reports and documents for publication. Have a look at my Testimonials.
Specialities: Sustainability and Circular Economy, Energy & Waste, Social Enterprises & Start-Ups, HR, the Arts/Culture, General Business English, Academic English.
Pricing: per word/hour, depending on volume, technicality, timeframe, publication.
Language Coaching & Presentation Skills
LANGUAGE TRAINING & PUBLIC SPEAKING
Lacking confidence, key expressions or just practice to present yourself at an event, deliver that presentation, after-dinner talk, keynote speech or TED talk?
Have a look at my Testimonials. I’d be happy to have a chat to see if I can help you or your organisation improve your communication in English, vital to increase the impact of your key messages.
I coach CEOs, Executives, Start-Ups, Students, Artists, NGOs and speakers (also for TEDx), to inspire them to present better in English/French/German.
I can do 1-1, groups and specialised workshops, online, offline and outside, usually in ‘blended’ learning formats since this is more effective.
I can coach in French and German on request, or a mix (I am completely trilingual).
I said ‘coaching’: yes. In 2017, I completed an ICF accredited coaching certificate as a Neuro Language®, using the principles of neuroscience and coaching to transfer language skills. I am part of a network of 600+ such coaches. I have the skills to help clients unblock their fears, get them to a positive learning state and understand how they like to learn, and express themselves freely in a language not their mother tongue. I have worked at high level in corporations, so can empathise with the situations and stress that my clients face. I also use my 25 years of singing and voice work and a recent course on sustainability and stand up comedy: humour and impro help you (and your audience) to relax and deal with the unexpected.
Specialities: Sustainability and the circular economy, NGOs, Corporate Responsibility, Energy, Waste & Recycling, Social Enterprises & Start-Ups, HR, General Business English, Arts & Culture.
Pricing: individual, group and company rates, from 1 week intensive to several months, mix of languages also possible.
