What it means to be ‘Gingered’

Ginger’s bold and spicy approach turns dry, theory-laden training on its head. Many people describe the experience as being ‘Gingered’ – with far-reaching results and positive impact on their entire professional career.

  • We take participants on a journey that transforms confidence and impact
  • We celebrate and champion personal strengths and talents, working with leaders to unlock their unique brilliance
  • We help people express what they care about, boosting diversity of voices in organisations and across industries
  • We amplify presence and impact, using storytelling to build connections and strengthen relationships
  • We equip leaders with the courage to act rather than waiting to feel ‘100% ready’
  • We help people connect to their values and articulate an inspiring vision for change
  • We encourage a mindset of ‘servant leadership’, helping leaders to articulate their ideas so they make a greater impact at work and in society… and then galvanise others to do the same
  • We put impersonal, robotic, corporate mumbo-jumbo where it belongs…and give it a good flush afterwards!

This is an outstanding book. As a professional speaker of many years, I only wish it had been around when I started out

Enlightening, insightful and savvy – this book is packed with brilliant ideas. Probably one of the most clear, concise and useful books I have ever read on the subject.

Girl Effect

An amazingly well curated programme that is all about build stronger and more vocal female leadership for those wanting to create big and meaningful positive change in the world. Helped me to not only talk about my vision more openly and persuasively but also helped me focus on why I do the work I do, and in doing so gave me greater energy to deliver on my vision further and faster. All round, a great investment that I know will benefit me for years to come.

Sarah has been instrumental in helping me find my vision, mission and platform for bringing about the change needed for Neurodiversity. As someone who struggles with networking, Sarah’s hosted game changing dinners have enabled me to connect with so many amazing and inspirational people who have motivated and amplified me in my own aspirations. On the Leader’s Voice programme, in 8 months I went from being unsure of myself and in tears at the thought of entering the room with 7 women I had never met, to standing proudly alongside them as friends in the House of Commons, as I prepared to make my speech. Sarah, and her team, created an environment that encouraged openness, enabled vulnerability, provided strength and generated belief in what is possible. They also showed me how to craft my story and message in a way that increased the power and impact of what I was saying. My life has changed so much in the 18 months since the first game changers dinner, and things accelerated during the Leaders voice programme. Something I credit Sarah as being the catalyst that made it happen.

Man Bites Dog

I’ve learnt so many things, not just about public speaking, but about myself. I’ve really thought about what I want & what causes I really care about. I truly think it’s a life changing experience… & a really fun one as well. The thing I’m most proud of, was going to Speaker’s Corner in gale force winds & the pouring rain & standing on a very wobbly step ladder & actually speaking in front of hecklers for more than 20 minutes. It was great to be heckled – it helped us all strengthen our arguments because we knew what the challenges would be.

Robin is amazing at what he does. We didn’t have that long together, and in that time he helped me restructure the talk so it packed a whole lot more punch, and we worked on the delivery. Robin was a brilliant combination of patient and clear as well as really knowing his stuff. He could see clearly what was needed for maximum impact. I highly recommend Robin.

We engaged Ginger to work with our senior team. Since working together there has been a noticeable improvement in their public speaking–particularly in the ability to connect with and communicate to their audience. I would and have recommended Ginger’s courses both on an individual and corporate level.

My work with Ginger gave me the structure and focus to achieve a dramatic improvement in my public speaking ability. This has resulted in greater impact with my clients – and has opened up a whole new set of opportunities in my professional life. The return-on-investment has completely exceeded my expectations.

Before I worked with Ginger, I was reasonably relaxed about sales pitches, but anything motivating felt alien. I went from being a ‘wooden’ speaker to one who could get up in front of a large audience and speak from the heart.
