Jessica tell us about yourself please

I currently work as an Associate Consultant, giving medical professionals financial peace of mind.

I enjoy thrill-seeking activities and spending time with my family and friends.

Here's what Jessica said after attending Michelle's training

“It was super engaging. Michelle was sensational, she kept us all engaged. I liked how the training was linked to our specific roles. I will be conscious of how I stand and use 4Mat to structure my messages.”

What kind of presenting do you do at work? 

My role involves speaking to clients and presenting advice.


What prompted you to study with Michelle?

The company I work for actually invited me to do the Masterclass and enrolled a group of us to participate.


How did Michelle’s teaching change your attitude to presenting in business? 

I now feel feel less nervous to present because I am educated on how to best prepare for presentations. I have changed from never wanting to present, to wanting to practice my presenting more and more.


How have improved presentation skills have impacted on your job and your career in general? 

I did my very first presentation at work since attending the Masterclass and I was really proud of myself! I was prepared and presented with confidence, and it made me feel excited to present again. Presenting has made me more known in the business and it has certainly made me believe in myself.

**Note from the editor: We reached out to Jessica to ask her to be a success story after our office was inundated with compliments about Jessica’s first presentation after training with Michelle Bowden. We are so proud of you Jess! Keep up this awesome work! 


In what specific ways have your presentation skills improved since learning with Michelle?  

I have only done the one presentation, but during that presentation, I did not read off the presentation slides. I knew what I was talking about because of the materials and formulas that Michelle provided us. Michelle taught us to use an icebreaker at the beginning of a presentation. The icebreaker I used was an absolute hit! The audience was engaged and made it so much fun!


What were your top three take-aways from Michelle’s masterclass?

1. The 4MAT structure – which can be used in so many different communication situations.

2. Have a sexy title! It makes all the difference if you start in a punchy way.

3. Pace, pace, pace, lead to build rapport with my audience.
