The Magic of Mentoring – Part 2

The Magic of Mentoring – Part 2

Miranda is 7 ¾ and Stephanie is 84 ¾. This mentoring conversation might seem as likely as Depeche Mode singing about building a set of Ikea book shelves but these two females both learn from each other. In my last post I spoke about the benefits of mentoring. Here, I look at the advantages of […]

The Magic of Mentoring – Part 1

How mentoring helps you get on professionally and personally. I remember looking at Asia on the map, really wanting to travel on my own but the longer I stared the bigger it seemed to get. I remember my first days as a trainee teacher when I thought I had to have everything I would say […]

What this little bird can teach you about sales and marketing

What this little bird can teach you about sales and marketing

The orange flame bower bird has got its sales and marketing down to a fine tee (photo courtesy of BBC). Grit, graft and gumption. Landing a client takes time. We’d love it to be a quick tick box exercise, something simple that gets us that new account. But it’s a process. And the more thought, […]

Mica is quick to understand my requirements and always delivers excellent text that fits my needs exactly. She is easy to work with and produces the product in advance of deadlines. Her ability to add excellent keyword research and valuable guidance in relation to all aspects of copy writing have made her an essential part of my workflow.

Valdimar Aðalsteinsson, Íslandsbanki

I’ve now attended a few Bloom Communication courses and have gained a better understanding of business writing, how to write a speech and I’m now much more confident and better able to deliver presentations. I’ve also got a better understanding of people’s behavior. My communication skills are much stronger and I’ve really loved the courses.

Zita Major, Össur

I’m a designer who attended the Tech course and found it really well structured and inspirational. Mica has an extensive knowledge of writing, language and grammar, and thanks to her natural curiosity she knows a lot more than that. She really tries to understand what you need so she can give you the best “tailor-made” knowledge. I recommend her courses for everyone who’s interested in writing or developing language skills, she’s one of the most talented teachers I’ve ever met.

Randy Fleckenstein, Rotary Club Reykjavik-International

Mica gave a talk to my Rotary club on the power of stories in public speaking and inspired a group of 15 from several different countries to actively use their imaginations to experience the story as a way to deliver a message. It was obvious that the entire group very much enjoyed her lively banter, professional organisation, use of props and uncanny ability to remove barriers and have everyone take part.

Muriel Léglise, Medis

I took the public speaking course Voice and Mica is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. Professional, resourceful and encouraging, if you’re intimidated to speak in public, she’s the one to bring the solutions and give you all the tools for successful and effective presentations!
