Paris Visbility Day

Be More Visible After a Day in Paris

 

Place du clichyVisibility is an underestimated part of success. Visibility brings credibility. Without it, you will fade into the background and your message will fail to be heard.

 

You may be a female senior leader who understands that it is time to become more visible, or a business owner who has suddenly realised that your failure to step into the limelight is seriously limiting your business’ potential…as well as your own growth.  What you do know is that you have to become more visible.

 

 

The Paris Visibility day is a day devoted to designing your profile, asking and answering questions such as:

 

  • What type of reputation do I want?
  • How can I become more visible?
  • How can I improve my online profile?
  • What strengths, skills and resources can I use to stand out?
  • What’s my message?
  • How can I use my profile to reach my goals?
  • Who do I need to know?

 

By the end of the day you will have designed your ideal profile plus co-created a strategy to make that happen.

 

Let’s begin!

 

Even before we set foot in Paris we will have a one to one or phone call to set the groundwork so that we’re ready to work hard in Paris. You’ll have completed some personality tests that will help us in our journey, and we will also have the results of an (independent) online reputation audit so that we can gauge where you are right now. Even if that’s nowhere, it’s all good information!

 

On The Day: Visibility On Your Own Terms

 

chocolates on the visibility dayWe meet at the Gard de Nord and from there we’ll head to Montmarte where we get stuck into questions such as what is that you want to be visible for? What reputation do you want to build? Here’s when we really set the parameters for what you need and what you want. We will also investigate why you want to become more visible?  Reasons past clients have had range from needing to raise their game for a promotion or job move to wanting to step up before it gets too late to a decision to be the best role model they can for their daughters.

 

If you are at all nervous about becoming more visible, we can address your worries and make sure that you come out of your comfort zone in a way that works for you.

 

This stuff is hard work so it will be followed by a break to pay a visit to my favourite Parisian chocolaterie, just in case you share my passion for heavenly chocolate.

 

Moving on, we will climb the steps to the beautiful Scare Coeur, occasionally stopping, not just to take in the view over this stunning city, but to examine your current situation and all the options from various viewpoints and vistas. It’s an incredibly powerful metaphor that can be as breath-taking as the view.

 

We will also be intensely practical about it, looking at things like who can help you with your plan, or unpick some tricky situation or belief that may have been holding you back or just making things difficult.  My distinct offerings of business psychology and coaching mean that we can assess both organisational impact and what it means for you.

When you’re ready, we’ll leave the peace of the Basilica and move into the colour, hustle and bustle of Montmarte and the world famous Place du Tertre. This was the stomping ground of artists such as Picasso, and now the home of some of the best portrait painters in France, who may have to wait up to ten years to grab one of the much wanted licenses.

 

Making it Happen

 

Here, we will add colour and creativity to your vision, or maybe just shake it up a little (I’m good at that!). Over lunch, we will looking at how others are going to perceive the more visible you in the flesh. How do you sound? Look? We even may do a little work on body language. We’ll assess if anything needs work and may add action points such as speaker training or a shopping expedition to your plan.

 

After a working lunch, you’ll have a little free time to visit the Dali museum, wander this amazing area or experience the atmospheric Montmartre cemetery (if you like photography, you won’t want to miss this), whilst you do a few coaching exercises to help you digest your work. We come back together for a glass of Champagne, tea or coffee on the terrace of a chic four star hotel that offers a different and yet equally gorgeous panoramic view of Paris. By now, we’ve moved onto strategy and action points, so that you’ll go away with what you need and concrete, achievable steps to help you reach your desired goals.  We will assess what will work best for your own particular skill set (writing for an academic journal? Blogging? Speaking?)

 

At the end of our time together, I go away and create your strategic plan for raising your visibility, which you will receive within 10 days.  You will also have my support – on demand – for the next 90 days. If you need accountability, I can give it to you. If it’s just a helping hand, that’s equally available. I will also open my large contact book where relevant, connecting you with people that may be able to help.

 

This Visibility day is perfect for:

 

  • Anyone who feels a lack of visibility is holding them back
  • Senior leaders already in the spotlight who would like to manage their profile more effectively
  • Those fed up with other less talented but higher profile people getting the attention/jobs/great projects
  • Business owners who understand that their next phase involves being the face of their business
  • Anybody who is scared by the thought of stepping our from the shadows
  • People who just want a profile-raising plan they can keep to
  • Anyone that has tried this on their own, but found themselves blocked or stuck

 

Wonderful food.  Characterful venues. Amazing views. All my business, coaching, PR and marketing experience and knowledge of business psychology focused on you. Why would you go anywhere else?

“I came to our day with a fuzzy idea of wanting to write a book to support what I do and get more visible. By the end of the day with Paula we had fleshed out exactly what I had to do to reach both my readers and potential publishers, and still stay true to my original idea. The pace is ideal, with plenty of time to think, lots of challenging questions and support when you need it. The Parisian backdrop really helped me get away from my day to day concerns and focus.” Visibility Day client.
