Jeannie D on flirting, working a crowd, and lifting your spirits.
“I always feel that if I look like crap then I feel lousy, so the best thing for me is go and have my hair blow-dried and put on a gorgeous outfit and great shoes... it helps every time!”
“Speaking to large groups of people is something that most people find terrifying. This scary place, however, is when I’m in my element. Try telling a story when you speak, make whatever you’re saying sound as interesting and exciting as possible to hold your audience’s attention. Also look as if you’re enjoying yourself, there’s nothing worse than watching someone on stage when they’re sweating like a hog out of fear.”
“Preparation is key, as long as I’ve done as much research as possible, I know I can handle myself confidently. Never underestimate a warm smile and eye contact.”
“I’ve learnt to become a really good communicator in every aspect of my life, this helps especially in relationships where you need to communicate what you want and don’t want. The ability to communicate clearly and concisely can avoid any argument or misunderstanding”
“I’m not entirely sure, I’m a flirtatious person and would flirt with anything, but that’s just me being friendly – and have no intention to give any kind of mixed signals. If I was flirting I think the guy would know... It’s all in the eyes!”
