Episode 193 – Discovering Your Presence

Episode Overview

We all know certain people that have that presence. We’ve all seen people who demand attention by just walking into a room. What is it that creates this sort of magnetism? While you may think you either have it or you don’t, Gina and Susanna dig deep into ways that everyone can kick their presence up another level.

Susanna explains ways to use body language, eye contact, and yes, even manufactured confidence to not only win over those around you, but to actually win over yourself. Genuinely becoming more like that person that you’re portraying. Gina talks about spatial presence and how to be acutely aware of your audience whether in person or even virtually. She gives examples of how to prime an audience and get them energized in order to keep them more engaged and captivated… in you.

They continue discussing other ways to build your presence. Mindset, how you dress, the calm confidence given from meditation, being able to pivot in how you interact with different personalities, and how energy is infectious.

PLUS! Listen to the end to hear Susanna’s ‘hire, date or fire question.’

More About Susanna

After graduating from Cambridge University in Music and Education, Susanna took her first sales role selling advertising space on websites.

She’s always been intrigued by the unfair negative stigma associated with sales and the way that after their initial excitement to work in sales, people will do everything they can to avoid actual prospecting.

With 14 years of experience in recruitment, Susanna challenges this mindset through her successful business sourcing sales professionals into recruitment roles.

Susanna decided to become a Sales Gravy Master Trainer because Sales Gravy’s vision matches her own beliefs and values.

She is committed to providing excellence and dedication to all of her trainees so that they can achieve their goals and succeed in sales.
