2nd July 2014



This month we had a wonderful guest speaker in the shape of Transformational Coach and ex Laptops member, Colleen Guy.  Colleen shared with us her top tips for Magical presentations and was particularly interesting around body language and hand gestures – which Denise from Damson Belle kindly demonstrated for us afterwards (see photo – this one conveys control!)  Colleen’s presentation was extremely well received and she’s offered to run the full day’s Presentation Skills course at a preferential rate for Laptops members.
 
It was lovely to meet new visitors Paula Laycock from Flirty Pretty Things and Anna Young from Pampered Chef and also to see Emmanuelle Lemoine back.
Quote of the Month?
