Tina Bakehouse - Prepare Your Mind


In 2007, I wanted an instructor position at a local university. My mentor said, “It will be hard. There’s lots of competition just to get an interview.” With lots of work, I landed the coveted interview. That was only half of it. Now, I had to prove myself as the ideal candidate for the position. I became consumed with preparing my mind. While preparing content prior to a presentation is essential (you must have something to talk about), your mind can affect and influence your message. To prepare your mind you must: visualize success, engage in positive self-talk, and practice, practice, practice. Two weeks prior to this interview, I visualized standing in a classroom, teaching and connecting with college students. I visualized answering questions thoughtfully. When the day came for my 8-hour interview, I felt calm, prepared, and ready. When I felt a moment of insecurity or negative thinking, I paused, and changed my thought. Instead, my mind said, “You got this!” “You’re here. They want you here.” “It’s a conversation to connect.” These positive thoughts guided my verbal messaging to connect with department. Weeks later, I got the exciting news: the university selected me as their new communication studies instructor! These skills didn’t just happen overnight. It takes practice. Lots of practice. Every day. All the time. Changing your mind chatter is a life-changer. Before you know it, you’ll be thinking and feeling more aligned and intentional to your authentic style. Make your mind a daily practice. Ready to craft a keynote or share your story? Reach out to me for a discovery call, so we can connect to uplevel your speaker style. If you want help telling you or your organization’s story or communicate with ease, I can help you in a 3, 6, or 12-month signature communication coaching program.

Carole Pluckrose - Creative Arts


Carole has spent her life working in the creative arts, as a performer, director, and writer. In the early part of her career as an actor, she traveled extensively throughout Europe and North America. This was a particularly rich and sometimes frightening career beginning, which involved covert political performances in East Germany, Poland, and then Czechoslovakia before the fall of communism. In 1984 she co-founded Arc Theatre, a young people's theatre company where she directed over 40 plays, touring into theatres and schools throughout the UK and internationally. During this time the company won a number of awards which put us firmly on the creative map. In 2014 Carole left Arc to set up the Boathouse Creative Studios, an arts venue in London to create a platform and incubation space for emerging artists. Alongside this, Carole is working on her current play, Notes from Dad’s Room, and since COVID-19 she is developing an online version of the play to be showcased shortly. Carole broadcasts a weekly piece with a chosen poem reflecting her mood and sense of what is happening currently in the world. Carole finds tremendous solace in literature - poetry is a great place to take refuge in these challenging times. "It's an artist's duty to reflect the times in which we live." -Nina Simone
