Body Language & Self-Confidence

- Communicate with Style, Attitude and Confidence


What do you think about “Confidence”? What is it? Where does it come from? What does it bring when you have it? How can you develop greater confidence in your Self?

When asked, Sigmund Freud’s daughter Anna once said …

“I was always looking outside for strength & confidence, but it came from within. It was there all the time”

Confidence can be viewed as an external reflection of the trust & beliefs we each have & hold deep inside our Selves. Others see it, feel it, and experience it, from our actions.

Though this may at first glance seem complex, it is possible to tease apart some of the core ingredients, and begin to understand what makes people appear confident, or not.

This requires us to raise our awareness and explore the combination of thoughts beliefs, attitudes, emotions & behaviours that we perhaps take for granted.

So as William Shakespeare spoketh in Othello.

“Our bodies are our gardens, to the which our wills are gardeners”

You know it’s time now to get to work in our gardens, isn’t it?

This Workshop therefore takes an emotionally intelligent approach to confident communication. Our focus connects inner thoughts, beliefs and attitudes, to the external actions and behaviours expressed through body language.

What we think & feel on the inside, predetermines how we behave on the outside, and hence the extent to which others perceive our confidence levels.


  • Our intentions are to open up your mind to new possibilities that allow you to communicate with more style and impact, by bringing attention to your thoughts, feelings & behaviours.
  • You’ll use the skills to reflect on, and take control of, relevant levers linking thought to action. You will find that as you attend to “Inner work”, you start to act with more confidence.
  • Emotional intelligence sits well at the heart of this soft skills Workshop. EQ will be used to get you to raise awareness of your Self, as well as how others perceive you.


  • Perceiving the power of body language that “speaks”.
  • Examining ways that body and emotions are connected.
  • Recognising that mind-body are connected to confidence.
  • Harnessing personal attitude, to focus on positive possibilities.
  • Using EQ (Emotional Intelligence) to enhance communications.
  • Reflecting, to adopt a more confident communications style.
  • Making choices to integrate attitudes, behaviours & styles.
  • Acting in ways that express more confidence to others.


This is an experiential Workshop, which emphasises engagement, interaction, and practice. Participants should expect short presentations that introduce content, experiential activities for skills practise, and group discussions for reflection that deepens their learning.


This one-day Workshop is designed for people at all levels who want to further develop their communications skills, so they can be more impactful by speaking with greater personal confidence.



Interesting to bring NLP in, as it broadens my perspective on communications.

We learnt that we have ability to change and improve soft skills in communication.

The Facilitator shared good insights into NLP, body language, and creating awareness.

He makes us think in different ways, and the focus on thoughts & emotions provided insights.

You will be more confident to talk after attending this seminar. The learning experience builds up more confidence for anyone.

I feel more comfortable & relaxed about taking initiative to speak about a subject I don’t know very well, or in front of an audience.

Patrick was very engaging. His stories were very clearly told to demonstrate how NLP can be applied.

The role-play forces one to come out of comfort zone, and this leads to inner self-awareness.

I’m more self-aware, and feel more confident and encouraged to apply what I learnt at work.

I better understand my inner self, am more self-aware, and more confident.



Mr. Patrick O’Brien, CMgr

With a constant appetite for change, Patrick came to realise one very important thing: it’s the People that matter in business, personal development and growth counts. His learning delivery approach therefore focuses on building those important soft skills. Training thus scaffolds atop three firm foundations.

First, for learning to stick, it needs to be fun; enjoyment & engagement are precursors to absorption & adoption. Next, for learning to be relevant, it has to be real; it needs collaboration, openness, and a little intensity. Finally, for learning to be desirable, it must match expectations; it has to substantially deliver what it says “on the tin”.

Patrick therefore designs Workshop experiences that masterfully combine Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) with a deep Coaching mentality. Both are invitingly interlaced using Improvisational techniques. His diverse background and experience also allow him to facilitate inclusive and valuable learning moments. These are highly engaging, empowering, and, enjoyable.

His life’s journey has straddled different countries and cultures in Ireland, England, New Zealand and Singapore. He has worked his way through a variety roles, from individual contributor to Managing Director, in the corporate world. And, he has built considerable business experience along the way in working across sectors such as government, technology, manufacturing, finance, consulting, aviation, telecommunications and the Internet.

His formal education is well rounded: Honours in IT, Masters in Marketing and MBA in Finance. He is also a “Master Practitioner” of NLP, and an enthusiastic author with Articles regularly appearing in the local media. In whatever form you experience his work, you’ll always feel his curiously cheerful sense of enjoyment; it shines through.

Patrick is an active member of many international Professional bodies, such as the Chartered Management Institute, the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Institute of Directors. He is proud to be one of only a small handful of “Chartered Managers” in Asia.

With a warm Irish wit, a love of the “craic” and a big beaming smile, audiences in over twenty-five countries have found his disarmingly unpretentious and conversational approach to learning, to be refreshing and rewarding experiences.
