How To Academy: Viv Groskop – How to Be Effortlessly Confident

Everyone wants to be able to face challenging situations without feeling daunted, intimidated or stressed. But no-one wants to be labelled over-confident, arrogant or smarmy, or to get caught up in their own hype. So how can you feel authentically confident – without the cringe, and without pretending to be something you’re not?

An award-winning comedian, journalist, writer and presenter, host of the wildly successful podcast and book How To Own the Room and a frequent sell-out at How To Academy, Viv Groskop knows what it means to be confident and assured in front of a crowd – even when it doesn’t in any way come naturally. As a performance coach, she works with women and senior teams in business and media, helping them to redefine leadership and authority – and generally worry less about how they come across so they can actually just do their work.

Now she returns to teach us a new way of thinking about confidence and how you relate to yourself. It’s called ‘Happy High Status’. It’s how actors and comedians enhance their presence on stage and screen. It lends strength and energy to your interactions, big and small, and is a way of projecting status, minimising self-doubt and moving effortlessly through life.

Drawing on research, practical tips and lessons from the worlds of comedy, film, television, politics and sport, Viv Groskop will offer a masterclass in how you can access this new form of confidence at any time. All, crucially, with no risk of anyone thinking that you are your own biggest fan.
