Jan 30, 2024

If people believe that you can deliver what they want and need, they will book you to speak, or buy your products or services. But in showing them that you can deliver there's a fine line between confident and cocky, and if you cross that line, it can push people away… and you don’t want that.

So … how do you show authority without shoving it in people’s faces?

Well that’s what I’m going to talk about today. Here’s what this show will cover:

  • A definition of authority in this context
  • The five ingredients for building authority authentically
  • Why you need to convince yourself first and how to do it
  • The next level of self-awareness that has made all the difference to me
  • Why ‘it has to be ‘you’ - 100% of the time
  • The real way to show you’re an expert
  • Tips for breaking down barriers
