Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk by Emma Zangs and Mariana Marquez, founders of MetaSpeech, a company which helps people become relaxed and confident speakers for pitch presentations, job interviews, or in front of a camera.

As entrepreneurs or if working in creative or professional industries, we are always tasked with speaking in front of others, whether pitching for investment or new business, selling an idea or ourselves or presenting information to others.

After experiencing their charms first hand at their Rockstar session, we can’t wait for these 2 to join us for dinner!

Their choreography background brings a fresh perspective to the way people run pitches and presentations. They will be sharing how to speak truthfully and inspire the audience, how to be ready to handle any situation and overcome your public speaking fear, how to achieve rock-solid confidence around posture, voice, hand gestures, eye contact, clear diction and hosting (or "owning the room”). And for anyone that wants to (and only if you want to), there will be the chance to ‘have a go’.

Last year, Metaspeech's tech startup clients raised a combined £12M, procured investment through BBC's Dragon's Den and gave talks at Tedx, Digital Shoreditch, Trendwatching.com, (best speaker award at SXSW V2V). Most recently, their innovative workshop "Embodied Confidence”, has been delivered to the likes of Techweek and Google in New York.

Don’t miss this chance to meet Emma and Mariana over dinner and to get some great tips to improve your public speaking (however good you think you are already).

Price includes private dining experience with speaker, 2 course dinner with wine and highly curated and relevant networking.

Co-founder of MetaSpeech and Marquez&Zangs with partner Mariana Marquez.

Drawing from choreography and movement direction practice, Mariana and Emma have developed an alternative approach to public speaking training.

Their method combines movement, reactive thinking, situational awareness and embodying flow. Based on neuroscience and somatic research, Metaspeech's tried-and-tested approach hones in on non-verbal communication as the foundation to achieve a grounded presence. By co-ordinating hand gestures, eye contact, posture, voice and stance the speaker becomes assertive and can effectively "own the room" when delivering a message to an audience.

Both Mariana and Emma hold a master’s degree from TrinityLaban Conservatoire in London. Their movement expertise ranges from Contemporary Dance, Yoga and Ballet to Authentic Movement, and Somatic Awareness. Their combined business acumen spans across entrepreneurship, leadership and product development.

Marquez&Zangs, its sister company, is a choreography and creative direction agency. We work for clients in the creative industries.

Both companies are driven by our fascination with the power of liveness and presence.
