Book of the month: Goodbye Glossophobia – A guide to banish your fear of public speaking

Jan 12 2020

Public speaking advisor Esther Stanhope advises her audience on effective communication and how to succeed in your job in her thought-provoking self-help book, Goodbye Glossophobia – A guide to banish your fear of public speaking.

It is certain that everyone has had to speak in front of a group at some point in their life. Whether this is in front of ten or ten thousand people, it can be equally terrifying for everyone. I’m sure almost everyone has had a moment whilst on stage, you gaze out across the audience and become engulfed by the fact that hundreds of pairs of eyes are fixed on you. Overwhelmed, you then begin to stumble, your speech is ruined, and you’re humiliated. Stanhope’s polished information guide provides a clear insight into not only why we have such a fear of public speaking, but also what we can do to (as she puts it) ‘own’ our fears and transform into much more confident public speakers.

Picture Book of the week: Sulwe by Lupita Nyong’o

Oct 09 2019

As a lifestyle journalist I come across lots of very interesting people every day, but there’s one lady that has inspired me from day one and that is Academy-Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. I was lucky enough to meet her a few times at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press conference and at the Black Panther premiere. Those short moments really sealed my conviction that Lupita Nyong’o is a special woman indeed. She is gentle, smart and extremely good looking. I am her biggest fan, having watched all her movies many times: 12 Years a Slave (or which she received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress), Mira Nair’s Queen of Katwe, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Ryan Coogler’s record-breaking box office hit Black Panther. She is publishing a stunning debut picture book called Sulwe through Puffin on 15 October.
