Own Your Space

A Passion and Purpose interactive keynote for AHRI, delivered by Tony Sloman. It will teach you how to engage and influence an audience by ‘showing up’ as the most authentic version of yourself.

As HR and L&D professionals, we are continually tasked with engaging and influencing stakeholders in order to achieve important outcomes. We are regarded as ‘trusted learning advisors’ and it is incumbent upon us to engage the room… to ‘own our space’, whether this is a board meeting, pitching a strategic initiative, facilitating a workshop, presenting or conducting high-stakes interviews. We are expected to be the experts, to portray accurate and engaging content that inspires and engages our listeners.

We are meant to know how to be the front-person and we may never have been shown how. Add to this the most common mindset that accompanies public speaking pressure – ‘imposter syndrome’ and we are self-sabotaged before we even get in the room. ‘Own your Space’ is part of the Passion and Purpose methodology of ‘EMPOWER’. It is about equipping leaders at all levels with the tools and mindset that enable them to shine when they are under the spotlight.

In this AHRI keynote, Tony will create a safe and inclusive environment that will inspire us to look inward at our inner resources, to embrace our vulnerability and our authenticity in order to connect to ourselves, to others and to own our stage.

Connection is a key element of the Passion and Purpose methodology that empowers us with a sense of purpose around our messages, enables us to deepen our level of engagement with our stakeholders and teaches us to mindfully embrace the space whilst reducing performance nerves and self-consciousness. The result is confidence and credibility.

Participants will learn through theory, performance techniques, reflection, collective wisdom and by getting up and embodying the tools. This keynote is designed to be inspiring, practical and fun.

Learning objectives include:
 • The ability to conquer our nerves when we are communicating under pressure
 • How to ‘Own your Space’ and exercise our ‘Right to Speak’
 • The Passion and Purpose model of Connection; connecting with purpose, with others and with the environment
 • The ability to engage authentically!
