A fun 40-minute masterclass by International speaker and ‘Personal Impact’ expert Esther Stanhope, former ‘Live’ BBC producer.

Get your voices heard and feel fabulous. The masterclass will follow the BCSWomen AGM on October 26 2017.


Join us at the BCSWomen AGM to hear about the group’s achievements in the past 12 months and help and guide us do even more next year. If you want to be involved by joining the committee, send a CV and a paragraph on why you think you would be great in the team.
We will get the AGM business out of the way first, so our plan is to start at 18:30, complete a short AGM and then have Esther run her fabulous masterclass.

18:40 Report from the Chair on the Activities for 2016/2017
18:55 Treasurers report (review of income and expenditure against the budget agreed with BCS HQ for the past year and an explanation of next year’s budget request)
19:10 Election of Chair, Treasurer and committee members
19:15 AOB
Networking and Nibbles (we will provide Wine and soft drinks and a sandwich supper to ensure that you will not go starving and that you will be chatty!! for networking)
19:20 The superstar, Esther Stanhope, will run her “Get Your Voices Heard and Feel abulous” masterclass
20:00 Networking
20:30 Close

Copies of the Minutes of the 2016 AGM and the Officers’ reports will be tabled at the AGM and will be available on request. If possible, please notify me of any matters you would wish to raise under Any Other Business (AOB), by no later than October 19 2017.

The masterclass

It’s practical, dynamic, packed full of tips and will give BCSWomen the opportunity to chat about issues they face as women in tech.

They’ll be put through their paces by Esther, The Impact Guru, an international Speaker who’s helped Hollywood stars, Politicians and Business Execs radiate charisma live on air at the BBC! I knows how to get the best out of talent. Read more at https://www.estherstanhope.com

Esther has spoken to thousands of women around the world – many very senior and seemingly confident – and she’s experienced first hand; imposter syndrome, the voice of doubt, juggling parenting and most importantly HOW to boost confidence and step into the spotlight. This is what she’d like to share with you at the BCSWomen AGM.

The Masterclass will allow them to;

  • Build their inner confidence and celebrate their talent
  • Shut out the voice of doubt (avoid letting imposter syndrome set in)
  • Speak with influence and captivate different audiences
  • Unlock their natural charisma, gravitas and personality
  • Boost their career confidence and not worry about competing with ‘the boys’
  • Look, sound and feel confident always; live, face to face, and remotely!
  • Feel fabulous!

They will walk away with speaking techniques they can apply immediately into their daily lives to help them articulate their ideas, vision and success stories – which will give them a massive confidence boost!
