Hello FUTURE journalist
Let’s land your dream job!
If you are a student journo who wants to work in broadcast, you need the right mindset, voice & skills.
You wouldn’t try to build a house without a hammer, so don’t step in front of a microphone without a trained voice.
If you think your degree is enough to get your dream job in broadcast journalism, think AGAIN!
I’m here to show you EVERYTHING I wish I knew from Uni until I landed my first job at CNN!
“Videoing myself & going off script plus Manuela’s great feedback helped me unlock my authenticity & create more connection with my audience. In this program I also learned that I need to take full responsibility for my communication, I can’t take responsibility for how people react to my messages. Stop being a crowd pleaser gave me so much confidence”.

“I'm a BIG planner. But in this course I learned to trust the unknown. We can't predict what will happen 100%, it's better to let it go & release control. I also loved the alignment tool before meetings. You achieve more by "being" instead of "doing all the time”.

Kat went from struggling with showing up on camera to confidently unlocking her alpha female energy and killing it on screen!


"My presentations went very well! My work colleagues told me that they see a clear improvement in the way I deliver. The "check in" exercise gave me the confidence to align with the right energy"

Javier signed up to level up his presenting skills in work meetings.


“In this course I learned to stop judging myself, especially with clients. Clients won't eat me. I now can create space and time to communicate at my pace & with confidence".

Annett signed up to overcome her communication blocks to sign clients confidently for her Yoga business.


"My biggest wins are videoing myself, going off script to help me create connection. The coaching about being in the spotlight leading to the fear of being found out as an imposter (look, he's not a "real" professional!) unlocks me being able to work on it".

Jon accessed the Speaking Lions tips to pitch his business more confidently both in person & on camera. He discovered the power of improvisation VS perfection.
