Andrea Clarke was the keynote speaker at one of our most popular SheSays Melbourne events to date. Addressing an audience of women working in advertising, marketing and digital, Andrea shared her story and practical advice to help women bridge the confidence gap in the workforce. The event sold out within three days and questions from the audience could have run all night if we’d allowed them. Andrea is an engaging, inspiring and compelling speaker and I would not hesitate to recommend her for other speaking engagements.
Andrea is a delightful and engaging guest speaker. Her professionalism, insight, experience and heart-felt emotion resonated strongly with the guests who attended. Her captivating ‘ten confidence tips’ were delivered with conviction and passion and I highly recommend the ‘Cracking the Confidence Code’ presentation to any organisation or individual for inspiration and communication training.
“Despite a huge diversity in our group, everyone took away specific tips for themselves and benefitted greatly from the opportunity to discuss and engage in a collective understanding of our impact when communicating effectively with senior stakeholders and clients.”
“The Communicating with Authority Workshop was really well-received by the young women in the group. The communicating with Authority workshop was not just about the technical delivery, understanding about body language and assertiveness. It ventured unexpectedly into areas of great importance for young women: how to recognize bullying and how to trust yourself and then how to respond. Andrea was able to quickly build trust and create a safe environment and her openness to discuss some personal examples was important for the young women participants. In addition her feedback about each person’s presentation was done in a very positive and encouraging way and that made each student feel they had participated in something really valuable”
“Andrea has taken me to a new level of speaking in front of the camera. I highly recommend you work with her if you want to be taken seriously when dealing with media or other key stakeholders”
Andrea is a wildly creative and innovative thinker with a sharp attention to detail and a quick wit. Working with her was a real delight – she’s dependable, delivers fantastic work and brightens up the room with her terrific sense of humor.
Andrea is extremely engaging, insightful, knowledgeable and approachable. She did an excellent job adding personal experiences to the session and asking for situations that we faced, so that we could talk them through and solve.
I have done a number of media training courses, but none as targeted as this one. Andrea worked hard to understand the expertise of our participants and to target the program to make it applicable to each individual, which was appreciated by all. I strongly believe every spokesperson needs to learn her training module before being in front of a camera. Thank you Andrea.
Andrea brings a depth of knowledge and first-hand experience to media and leadership training that is invaluable. After working with our faculty at the University of San Diego, we instantly saw an increase in their willingness to interact with the media, and to present their ideas to the public affairs team in a new and creative way. All faculty staff felt at ease and took advantage of the extensive experience on both sides of the camera to ask for advice, technique and guidance in working with reporters, and with social media outlets. The confidence our faculty felt after just a day of training was incredible, and has only grown. We will continue to rely on Andrea for media training at USD, and highly recommend her services.
