Public speaking experience


feels more confident after joining Stage Heroes

Are you ready to become  unstoppable, unforgettable and uncopyable?

Your career/business can only move forward when you’re able to articulate your ideas, solutions and plans to others. To your (senior) leadership, your clients and your colleagues.

The problem is that there are so many brilliant people who stay silent. Nobody knows what they are capable of. And you might be one of them. 

You deserve to feel excited when speaking in public rather than terrified. Your ideas deserve to be heard. You deserve to be heard. Being a part of the Stage Heroes community will give you the confidence to start raising your hand and speaking up. 

It’s time to bring out your inner Stage Hero. Are you ready?

Let’s unleash your inner Stage Hero in the

Stage Heroes Academy

The Stage Heroes Academy is for you when →

–> You have lots of ideas but you don’t know how to present them in a compelling way.

–> Giving presentations is an important part of your job but you don’t really enjoy it yet.

–> You want to get better at telling stories, influencing and inspiring action from your audience.

–> You want to grow your business, change your career or are ready to wheel in that promotion.

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!

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.
