Make Me SHINE, Bronwyn!
Bronwyn is not only the expert in the field of personal resonance and presentation/communication skill building & tweaking, but she’s hilarious, witty and crazy bright! I know 20 minutes won’t be enough for me each week because I could glean Information and insights from her for hours...and I know it will be such a funny and fun “ride” through each episode, I won’t want it to end!
The school pick up line has become much more interesting (and bearable!). Bronwyn, when you speak, I feel like you are talking to just me! Each episode is filled with amazing words of wisdom, sprinkled with tidbits of positive energy, throughout. Public speaking is the last thing I ever ever ever want to do, but this podcast is still so relevant to me! Keep doing what you do and shine on you crazy diamond ✨
Keeping It Real
Firstly Bronwyn is a friend so yes I am biased. However, I spend a lot of time with content creators, leaders, podcasters, experts and educators and so I bring some experience. I love that Bronwyn is very self aware and owns her perspective, method and approach to giving us her advice. And this is well researched and considered advice supported with great guests and presented with humility, humor and humanity. Thank you for putting this beautiful work/advice/challenge/thought provoking content out into the world!!!
