Hi I’m Trish. I’m an introvert, a creative business consultant, a mentor, a speaker, coach, trainer, author and host of Get Known Be Seen WebTV. I have come a long way from young girl just out of school who was a very shy introvert whose concept of meeting people at meetings was to find the tallest pot plant, the clock and the exit sign. I would stand behind the pot plant, watch for 10 minutes on the clock and then was out the door. It certainly wasn’t the best way to network! Today my clients work with me because they know I can help them have the confidence and self-belief to make speaking easy. I am passionate about mentoring, I am awesome and I own who I am. Oh, I am just a touch in love with the colour purple as well!
So how did I get from that shy Trish who was not at all confident, who would avoid speaking, who had potential but didn’t have the confidence to fulfil that potential. I had and still have a very supportive family – who told me you can do anything you want, be anything – go for it. Those are great words – only they are just words if you don’t believe in those words and that was me – no confidence, no self-belief. It was not until I had a mentor who pushed me, who challenged me, who believed in me and helped me to believe in myself that I grew into who I am and am comfortable with who I am. That is why I love mentoring, love finding ways to make it easy for clients to find you, why I love working with introverts and those who are letting their mindset and limiting beliefs stop them from being all that they can be.
So as an introvert who speaks out and having personally experienced the fear of public speaking and being lost for words when facing questions, and missing opportunities because of this, I am passionate about helping you conquer your fear of speaking and communication, to believe in yourself, to step into your power and share with other.
I have overcome my limiting beliefs around writing. I never thought I could write until I had to do blogs and articles and then a chapter for a book. I discovered that I love writing. Today I am the author, co-author, contributing author to over sixteen books. I work with authors helping them to share their story and to leverage and repurpose their books. I know what it is like to have books on shelves, in boxes in the garage because I didn’t know what to do with my book. I’ve made all the mistakes you could possible make with publishing that first book.You can find my books on the Book Page – just click on Books in the top menu.
I am the co-founder and owner of Trischel, dedicated to bringing communication and effective speaking skills to individuals, businesses and organisations. I discovered I love training – I love seeing those AHA moments when I help someone with their speaking and communication skills. When they see the value of speaking in their job, their career and in their business. I love it when I share how to have difficult conversation, how to plan your goals, how to step into positive thinking. Through Trischel I have worked with many large and small companies helping executives, managers and teams to be confident communicators. I have shared communication, speaking and presentation skills to accountants from Crosbie Warren Sinclair; executives from The IQ Business Group and Aurecon; scientists from Rio Tinto Alcon; engineers from James Hardy and property retail experts from Jones Lang LaSalle.
