THE ADVENTURES OF SOPHIE AND MOLLY -SOPHIE'S SPEECH
This collaborative children's book project, working with author, MC and public speaking coach Craig McGregor. It is illustrated in a fun and interactive way to encourage confidence in public speaking. With characters based on the authors personal connections it was a fun and challenging project that I was lucky enough to have creative licence with to explore and develop the visual story.
“You mean I have to stand up and say something in front of EVERYONE?”
"If you ask most people, they will probably say they don’t like to speak in front of a group of people, especially people they don’t know. At some point in their life they have had a negative experience and the fear of public speaking becomes real.
This story is about the family bonds of a 10-year-old girl, her dog and the grandfather who helps her overcome her fear of speaking in front of her class. It is a marvellous tale based on real life events that affect school children, teenagers and many adults.
You will perform hilarious actions and exaggerations that will have you laughing out loud.
In the process of reading this book your confidence will improve, and you will learn skills that the listener and the reader can use.
