Self Confidence

How to have balls even if you weren’t born with any


What do corporate boardrooms and comedy stages have in common?

A prevalence of testosterone! And that’s no joke.

Nevertheless, international comedian and improv coach Sylvia Day has been able to create an impressive comedy career while not only retaining her femininity in a world of men, but embracing it.

First we’ll listen to Sylvia’s inspiring talk about her journey from a shy girl who was told “The best job for a woman is a good man” –

to producer of her own one-woman show Off-Broadway.

Sylvia’s talks and performances often involve breaking down the “fourth wall” of a stage – so be prepared for a lively, interactive session!


Trained by the world’s top improv schools (Second City, Upright Citizens Brigade), Sylvia will also show you some of her tricks and techniques on how to:

Trust and commit to yourself

Make bold statements

Take risks

Say no in a positive way

This energizing event is sure to set you on a positive track for the new year!
