Improve your speeches in public and in meetings / Brussels

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Public speaking is one of the scariest 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 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.
Actress and director, 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 conveying the work of oral expression.

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 built my approach to voice with a variety of practices, such as Kristin Linklater's natural voice method, the biodynamic approach and the vibratory singing transmitted by Nadine Rodilla, or the work inherited from the Roy Hart Theater (theater musical) taught by Joseph Clark.
Today I am part of two vocal ensembles: the company Patshiva, with whom we often perform shows and concerts and a Jazz ensemble directed by Marie-Sophie Talbot.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been working on oral expression with all kinds of audiences since 2009 (children, drama students, teenagers, professional journalists, executives, computer scientists, activists, officials of the European Commission , porter.ses 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 Performing Arts: Art-T (Brussels), Serco Europe (Brussels), the collective 52 (Paris), the Pole Les Bazis (France), SMart and the Far network (Belgium)

Living for more than ten years in the European capital, passionate about other cultures, I teach in English also and receive students from all over the world (I have notions of Italian, Spanish and modern Greek)
I also get to Paris, where I was born and where I go very regularly.

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.
I have had one session, so it is perhaps too soon for me to judge. Charlotte is working with me on improving my public speaking and voice in general. So far, she seems to be a generous listener and thoughtful speaker who puts me immediately at ease. She has a gentle, warm and professional manner which I find both attractive and helpful. She seems open and able to give each student an individualized guidance depending on their level and needs.
Cela faisait longtemps que je cherchais à améliorer ma prise de parole en public et mon expression orale. Heureusement, j'ai trouvé Charlotte via le site Apprentus ! Grâce aux descriptions de chaque prof cela permet de faire ton choix en fonction de tes envies et tes besoins. Je recommande vivement !
This course is for those who evolve in the French language and of which it is not the native language. Or, to people with a strong accent who would like to reduce it. The work that I propose is based on my speaking techniques drawn from the theater and singing and will allow you to have a beautiful diction, to speak less quickly and more clearly. This course is also aimed at communication professionals (singers, comedians, journalists, lawyers, doctors, lecturers) wishing to develop their oratorical potential.
The current professional world pushes us to always look valiant and powerful. 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, nothing more natural. Today, and we can rejoice, oral expression is up to date in our Western societies. The work that this effort requires is known. It is important to be able to share your vulnerabilities with someone confident, who will make you find the pleasure behind fear! My specificity as a teacher? I transmit an accompaniment adapted to each person, resulting from my theatrical practice, vocal and from 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! Men may also be happy to experiment with me with a different approach, away from the usual manly 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 !

Master Public Speaking Using Compelling Language Techniques
This class is for those wanting to craft and develop communication skills for public speaking and presentations. I specialise in creating speeches using compelling and masterful language designed to influence a small or large audience. The techniques used will enhance your level of calm, confidence, and charisma as you conduct public presentations. Regardless if your native tongue is in English, French, Dutch or etcetera the communication skills you will learn from this class will be life changing. Some of the communication techniques used will teach you how to influence others at the unconscious level and will give you a high degree of composure and command over the individuals, groups and audiences. Assisting those preparing presentations in English is my specialty.

Creative English 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 english or simply conversation, I will adapt to what fits you most. My master's degree in visual arts will allow you to learn in a creative way, adapated to your needs and goals. I have spent more than 8 years of my life in foreign countries therefore know the difficulties of learning a new language. I had a professional experience in the UK working in an international art gallery which also provided me with skills in professional english.

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.

Nice Italian lessons: understand and speak, read and write
Are you going to Erasmus in Italy soon? Or are you passionate about the Italian language and culture? Depending on your level, we partly take grammar and vocabulary. Above all, I want you to learn to converse spontaneously and feel confident in this. The purpose of the lessons is that you are amused as you learn. Homework can, but should not. Everything is adjusted to your size, depending on what your learning goal is. About me: A few years ago I lived in Milan for a year. After an intensive course of 2 weeks, I found 3 Italian roommates to live with. Given the limited knowledge of their English, I quickly picked up Italian. That's how I learned to speak Italian fluently. Once back in Belgium, I still visit Italy every 2-3 months, or Italian friends visit me here.

English Speaking Practice For Any Occasion You Need
This class is designed to make the student more confident in their English speaking abilities. This class is designed for those who already have a background in English but want to learn from a native speaker how to have everyday conversations. The class includes both formal speaking and slang components as well as everyday conversation and more formal speaking. I always tailor my classes to the needs of the individual. We could have classes focused on English speaking to prepare you for studying abroad, to prepare you for a job interview in English, or for any reason you could imagine.

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.
