The Ash Evans Workshops will give you a solid understanding of the importance of developing memorable key messages and pitches, the art of presentation skills, what to do in the face of a crisis, speaking to the media, on camera and in the spotlight, as well as equipping you with the tools necessary to communicate effectively to your investors and clients. If you’re in front of a camera, if you are in front of an audience, or in front of a microphone, this course is going to help you come across as your best. 

Included in your once off ticket price is: 4 Media training workshops, 4 tasting sessions with Pernod Ricard and 4 post-workshop cocktail parties, giving you the opportunity to network with other like minded businesswomen this women's month.

Your coach, Ash Evans, is an international TV Reporter, Media Trainer and Communications Specialist. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Master of Science in Communication from Lynn University in Florida, USA and a certificate in The Global Financial Crisis from Yale. She spent seven years living in the USA, where she worked in politics on Capitol Hill before returning to broadcasting at Al Jazeera in Washington DC, followed by her on camera role at CNBC Africa in Cape Town.

After years of interviewing individuals who struggled with on-camera performance, Ashlea founded The King's Speech to help train executives and business leaders on how to make the most of their media interviews and presentations. 

In 2019, she founded Ash Evans Co. a platform dedicated to equipping businesswomen and entrepreneurs with the skills they need to harness the full power of the media to their advantage.

Workshop 2: Presentation Skills

Cocktail Pairing: A whisky for those nerves - Glenlivet 

First impressions count, but last impressions count more. How are your presentation skills? Are you TedX ready? 

We will teach you presentation techniques and insider secrets used by expert speakers. Learn how to create it, shape it and deliver it. And most importantly, learn the art of storytelling. 


While theory is important, we see great value in the on camera element: We bring a few of you up to present, and we will film, playback and critique - so you can see your mistakes and rectify them - bringing out your business leader influence with impact.

So join us at the Presentation Skills Workshop: Making your impression last.
