How to Own the Room

Viv Groskop

Overview

To a certain extent, we all feel nervous before the critical eye of an audience. But it can be especially hard for women who have historically been lonelier than men in boardroom meetings, TED talks, or presidential conventions.

In How to Own the Room, renowned comedian and TV presenter Viv Groskop argues that women should focus more on controlling their nerves than on perfecting their words.

Groskop has hosted four Edinburgh Fringe shows and BBC Radio 4's Front Row and Saturday Review. She also hosts her own podcasts Dear Viv and We Are Women through which she helps women hone their leadership and communication skills.

"Women don't need to find a voice. They have a voice. They need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen."
