Public speaking experience


feels more confident after joining Stage Heroes

Imposter syndrome anyone? 

It’s Monday morning and you see a presentation in your calendar for that week. 

Some of these thoughts may come up:

“I’m not prepared enough”
“Let me look at my slides again. Maybe I need to add in more”
“Why do I always wait till the last minute to prepare?”
“I need to make sure they see that I deserve to be here”

Recognise any of these ? 

My name is Maja, founder of Stage Heroes and I’ve had all of these thoughts. I’ve had imposter syndrome for a long time and honestly, I still doubt myself sometimes.

But let me tell you something.  The more you know, the more you know what you don’t know. So the further you get in your career, the more you become aware of what you don’t know. And this creates the feeling of not knowing, not being or not bringing enough.

Feelings of insecurity will always be there. It’s what makes us human. I learned how to not let them hold me back and I’d love to teach you how to do that.

After following the Stage Heroes course I felt so much more confident in taking the step to present on the (digital) stage. It was a big step for me, but with the tools, I feel secure about what is still to come. Thank you so much Maja!

I truly enjoyed every minute of this course. Particularly the “mindset approach” Maja has implemented. It is different from any other course I have ever attended and so much more formative. Maja is a great professional and truly inspiring. Her contagious energy was tangible even through the screen.

You’re probably still giving level 1 and 2 presentations,

In my 8 years of experience as a presentation coach, working with TEDx speakers, CXO’s and entrepreneurs, I’ve discovered 3 levels of presentations.

Level 1. Informing presentations. When you’re giving these presentations, you are mostly focused on the information you wish to share. Probably accompanied by elaborate slide decks. 

RESULT: Your audience leaves feeling overwhelmed, thinking “this could have been an email” and forgetting 95% of what you said within 30 minutes. 

Level 2. Inspiring presentations. When you are giving inspiring presentations, you have already thought more about what your audience needs to hear. You are enjoying the moment and so is your audience.

RESULT: As much as inspiration is helpful, it does not actually drive change. Often when we are inspired, that feeling is gone the moment, we go back to our day-to-day. 

Level 3. Enrolling presentations. When you enrol your audience, they feel connected to you as the speaker, to your message ánd to each other. That last part, that’s where the magic happens.

RESULT: You create lasting change. A change in behavior, a change in thinking and a change in how people treat and see each other. 

When you present in level 3, there is no limit to where your career can go!

Step 1: Your Video training

Stage Heroes online video presentation training

Next Level presentations

This course is the backbone of the Stage Heroes academy. You could call it the fundamentals. I will take you through the 3 Stage Hero pillars. 
Mindset: Do you ever wonder why you speak so easily to friends or just one person and stumble once the crowd gets bigger? This has nothing to do with your skills and everything with your mindset. You’ve told yourself stories about what it means to be in front of a crowd. Working on the right mindset is essential to becoming an inspiring speaker.
Content: Confidence also comes from knowing your story is rock solid. I will teach you how to create presentations and stories in a way that nobody will ever forget your message. You’ll learn how to subtly influence your audience and how to remember the chapters in your presentations. Three essential elements to master in order to become a true Stage Hero. 
Delivery: A well timed pause can say more than a thousand words. So can your hand gestures, your posture and working with spacial anchors. I’ll teach you all of this during the last module of this course. 


Stage Heroes story structures online training
