Improve your speeches in public and in meetings / Brussels

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Public speaking is one of the most scary things for human beings. For some, this can be extremely disabling and hinder their entire career.
But this apprehension concerns a very large percentage of the population and crosses all categories of age, sex or socio-professional environment. If you are in this case, you can start by reassuring yourself: you are not alone!
The second good news is that it works! It is by practicing that you will learn how to lower the level of stress, to be more aware of what you have to do and to be well prepared.
To practice, I offer private lessons: a benevolent and demanding environment that will allow us to adapt to your specific needs. Once you have understood your fears and learned to overcome them, speaking (in public, meeting) may be a great source of fun!

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Performing and vocal artist, I play regularly in Belgium and abroad; mainly in the context of public readings, performances (spoken or sung), stage creations and radio broadcasts.

My practice is centered on the relationship between writing and voice. How to make a written text natural? It's an exciting question, to which I give myself as an artist and that I love to convey. It's always amazing to bridge a person (his body, his voice, his posture in space, his sensitivity) and what he / she has to say!

In recent years, my artistic practice has been enriched by a musical approach and the exploration of several vocal techniques. This knowledge is very valuable for the oral expression work that I pass on.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I come from the world of stage and theater. I studied acting at the Ecole Supérieure d'Art Dramatique (Paris) and directed at the National Superior Institute of Performing Arts (Brussels). I also studied Modern Literature, Dramaturgy and I have been singing for many years.
I have built my approach to voice with a variety of practices, such as Kristin Linklater's natural voice method, biodynamic approach and vibratory singing transmitted by Nadine Rodilla, the legacy work of the Roy Hart Theater (musical theater) taught. by Joseph Clark, the traditional polyphonic song transmitted by Dounia Depoorter or jazz with Marie-Sophie Talbot.
Today I am part of several vocal groups including the 'Hot bodies choir' directed by Gérald Kurdian.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been working on speaking with all kinds of audiences since 2009.
I passed on my techniques to children, drama students, teenagers, professional journalists, executives, computer scientists, activists, European Commission officials, translators, diplomats, salesmen, linguists, professors and bearers of artistic projects.
I worked in structures such as: The Contemporary Art Workshops (Liège, Brussels), the "Parallax" actors' school (Brussels), La Monnaie / De Munt (Brussels), the Odeon - Théâtre de l (Paris), the CFPJ (Paris), the school of scenic arts: Art-T (Brussels), Serco Europe (Brussels), the collective 52 (Paris), the Pole Les Bazis (France), the Smart and the Far network (Belgium), the Haute Ecole Franscico Ferrer and the Université Saint-Louis (Brussels)

Living for over ten years in the European capital, passionate about other cultures, I teach in English as well and receive students from around the world that I can work with their mother tongue (I have notions of Italian, Spanish and modern Greek)
I also get to Paris, where I was born and where I go very regularly.

Very easy to communicate with Charlotte, she listened to the needs of my husband and she gave 3 excelent classes where he could learn how to better speak in public. We can recommended Charlotte for everyone who wants to improve this skill.
Charlotte is an excellent coach and I would highly recommend anyone with fears of public speaking like myself to consult with her. Through my coaching sessions with Charlotte, I am visibly improving my speaking techniques. The exercises are fun and I am happy to say that my fears might one day even be conquered, so that public speaking will be a joyful experience. Thank you!
The two lessons I've had have been extremely helpful already in calming my nerves and improving my voice!
Charlotte is a superb instructor. I took classes with her at her home for several months to improve my public speaking skills. During each session, Charlotte helped me work on my tone and delivery through various public speaking exercises. Charlotte asked me to prepare short written assignments before our meetings, so that I could practice delivering my script using various speaking techniques during the class. For these assignments, Charlotte was very engaged and made sure that the assignments would assist me in my specific professional goals. She did this by tailoring the subject matter to my professional work - mostly legal and political matters - and she pushed me to consider what I wanted to achieve from my audience with each speaking opportunity. Charlotte, however, is not only a skilled professional. She is also a tremendously kind, energetic and dynamic person to work with. She made me feel comfortable sharing my vulnerabilities, which made the process of receiving constructive feedback a fun and welcomed experience. She encouraged me to practice my public speaking in French - which is not my first language - and made me feel at ease. She is kind, understanding and an incredibly nice person. If you are looking for a professional who is dedicated to helping you improve, welcomes your goals and ideas, and who is a pleasure to meet with each week - then look no further than Charlotte.
Accueil très agréable. Charlotte a tout de suite su identifier les points à travailler!

This course is aimed at those who evolve in the French language and of which it is not the native language. But also to people with a strong accent and who would like to reduce it. The work that I propose is based on my speaking techniques from theater and singing and will allow you to have a beautiful diction, speak less quickly and more clearly. This course is also intended for professionals of the communication (singers, comedians, journalists, lawyers, doctors, lecturers) wishing to develop their oratory potential or to address a specific question. Looking forward to reading you.

The current professional world pushes us to always look valiant and efficient. But the voice can suddenly fail us and we hear screaming, inside us: "I'll never get there, I'm not up to it!" These silent cries block our expression and force us to remain spectators. of those who arrive there: to speak, to master their voice, their body, their speech ... How would it be otherwise, when we never learned these techniques and did not train? Public speaking has, for many of us, more naturalness. Today, and we can rejoice, oral expression is up to date in our Western societies. The work that this effort requires is known and it is important to be able to share its vulnerabilities with someone you trust, who will make you rediscover the pleasure behind fear! My specificity as a teacher? I transmit an accompaniment adapted to each person, resulting from my theatrical practice, vocal and my constant research on the language. My teaching experiences led me to be attentive to the problems related to the speech of women, particularly spoiled in terms of cultural obstacles! Others may also be happy to experiment with me a different approach, departing from the usual male injunctions. My goal is to find the singularity of each voice, which is that of each being. The solutions that you will put in place to make you feel more comfortable will emerge from you, your work guided with kindness and involvement. Want to try this joyous adventure? Welcome !

Many people are the ones who come to see me because they are shy and would like to change, feeling stuck in their career (where more and more people are asking for oral presentations) To those, I want to say: do you know that some of the greatest artists were very shy? That did not stop them from making the crowds vibrate on stage! "Technique is what prevents us from breaking our mouth!" This sentence, attributed to Jacques Brel - always sick before going on stage - reminds us where to turn our attention if and when we are not confident in ourselves and fear the eyes of others. We will develop all the technical means at our disposal to spread our word, learn to trust the situation of enunciation and welcome what the public (the audience) will send back to us. Nobody has interest in a failed speech! The public (the audience) is our ally and - thanks to the work - we will learn to build on it and play with it. Welcome to my home, in a secure space where you will have all the time to practice with a benevolent teacher, herself still practicing as a scenic and vocal artist!

Creative French course adapted to your needs and goals
I give my classes based on each student's need. Whether you want to focus on written professional french or simply conversation, I will adapt to what fits you most.

Intercultural negotiations, Public Speaking, feeling comfortable in new cultural settings
There is no general solution for everyone when it comes to public speaking or intercultural business negotiations. Based on the still ongoing experience in international negotiations, and lecturing and researching cultural and economic integration of groups of people, I approach personal trainings with a globally-tested tailored approach. The class is exercise-based and requires intensive participation. It can serve as a prep course for a new expatriation/job-posting experience or simply as confidence-builder for upcoming rounds of international business negotiations. You'll be introduced to the general approach to and the principles of public speaking, but we will focus on your character and objectives. First we talk about your experience and worries, and then we will adjust the process to your needs.

Work your spoken voice and manage your stress for public speaking
Managing stress, controlling your voice when you have to speak in public can be a big challenge. Good news: a challenge, we can take it up! After a few sessions, you will feel more confident, more convincing. Your interlocutors will be more willing to listen to the information you want to transmit. Your voice will stay clear longer and you will feel a great boost of energy. We will work on posture, breathing, voice modulation, volume, height, and different ways of dealing with stress. We will establish your profile to choose the tools that suit you best. Through role play, you can put yourself in a situation and, for example, prepare an interview, a presentation, a conference or a meeting.

Serbian language and culture; Chinese language and culture
In 2013, I completed my bachelor studies in Chinese language, culture and literature at the University of Belgrade. Since then, I have thought Chinese, English and Serbian to many different nationalities in Belgium, Ghana and Serbia. As a successful teacher, I have two main goals: - to teach a language (Serbian or Chinese) in a very creative way, meaning that it is my responsibility that my student, each session takes away, remembers 85% of the content. - to teach culture in parallel so that student falls in love with the country and explores cultural differences between their own country and Serbian or / and Chinese culture.

Indonesian Class (Speaking, Listening, Writing, Reading)
Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a unitary sovereign state and transcontinental country located mainly in Southeast Asia with some territories in Oceania. Situated between the Indian and Pacific oceans, it is the world's largest island country, with more than seventeen thousand islands. At 1,904,569 square kilometres (735,358 square miles), Indonesia is the world's 14th-largest country in terms of land area and world's 7th-largest country in terms of combined sea and land area. It has an estimated population of over 260 million people and is the world's fourth most populous country, the most populous Austronesian nation, as well as the most populous Muslim-majority country. The world's most populous island of Java contains more than half of the country's population. Indonesian is the national language of Indonesia, uniting over 273 million people. Aside from all the regions of Indonesia, it is also spoken in countries such as Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, Netherlands, and the USA. Based on the Euro-continental orthography, Indonesian uses the Roman script. It is a relatively young language and is different from Malay, which was widely used until the 1950s. There are as many as 300 distinct ethnic groups in Indonesia who speak Indonesian, and each dialect is unique in its own way. Therefore, a phrase common in one group may have different connotations in another. Not many Indonesians are able to speak English. Consequently, by learning how to speak Indonesian, you will be able to communicate with them more effectively. Whether you are on vacation in Bali or a business trip to Jakarta, knowing how to speak Indonesian will really add to and enrich your experience.
