Refinery29 Interview

It was an absolute pleasure and as well as a humbling experience to be interviewed by the Refinery29, the same magazine that had previously interviewed former First Lady Michelle Obama.  I’ve always admired Michelle. Could you imagine if she came to one of my Strut Masterclasses! what a world-shattering experience that would be!  Her ability to energise, inspire and motivate women is incredible – a true role model for all of us.

Fubar Radio Interview

Being interviewed by YouTube star Calum McSwiggan from Fubar radio, was soo much fun. My favourite part of the show was playing the game ‘Is this porn”, which was super-educational.  We were guessing whether sound clips came from Charlie’s Angels or from a porn movie.  It really showed up how much subliminal fetish there is in straight movies.

Watch the full interview below to find out what happened and see if you agree.

Metro podcast Good Sex Bad Sex

I was touring in Berlin when I did my first interview with Bibi Lynch and Miranda Kane from the award-winning podcast “Good Sex - Bad Sex”.  I was promoting my very first Art of Seduction event.  We spoke openly and frankly about sex and being seductive. I shared tips and advice on how to seduce your partner in a very feminine but empowered way, taking examples from the event.  The interview was full of laughter and flirting (the essence of seduction), lol mainly me flirting with Bibi. 

 I was honoured to be asked again to be interviewed by these two superstars.  This time I was invited into the Daily Mail and General Trust office to teach them how to STRUT.

Check out both interviews below.

Destination Devonshire WeWork Devonshire Square London Meetup Event

Madam Storm’s Meetup Group STRUTTERS were chosen to be a pioneer in the first edition of Destination Devonshire, the festival of London Meetups. It was an amazing event with hundreds of attendees participating in Madam Storm’s STRUT Masterclass.  The lady herself also featured as the voice over for the event. The event was a huge success. The participants had great fun following Madam Storm as she showed them how to walk sexy and confidently with ever increasing confidence and self esteem.

Heres what Odile Beniflah, Head of international had to say about Madam Storm STRUT Masterclass.

International Aids Conference in Amsterdam

Last month I delivered my Madam Storm’s STRUT Masterclass at the Global village in Amsterdam for the International Aids Conference.  Here’s what Silvia Petretti, the CEO of Positively UK had to say.

Just a few months earlier,  I worked with the same team in another STRUT Masterclass.  I was teaching them how to walk in their stilettos, own their space, walk confidently and STRUT into their power.  And here they are, the day before the Aids International Conference, pumped and excited doing a live STRUT Masterclass with me in front of an audience of hundreds.

They became professional STRUTTERS hunni

Have you ever thought……….How can I learn to walk gracefully in heels?  Well, Hunni, you are  not alone!  This was our 11th STRUT Masterclass,  teaching women how to walk elegantly in high heels.

I pride myself that every Strut is different and this one had a special new twist.  The ladies created their very own STRUT and demonstrated it to the class.  The ladies were divided into two groups.  One group named their Strut The Tesco Strut.  That’s the strut you might do in the supermarket aisle and stand out in the crowd.  In total contrast, the second group invented The Twist STRUT, the Strut for when the party gets active.  It’s full of uninhibited sass!

 Here are my STRUTTERS teaching their very own STRUT

It was a fun exercise.  The women enjoyed it greatly and it allowed them to think about how they walked and then think also about how we can use different walks for different environments and circumstances. Having a member of each team teach the rest of the class allowed the women to STRUT outside their comfort zone, take control and increase their confidence.

The afternoon started with the ladies introducing themselves and sharing why the came to STRUT.  Many wanted to improve the way they walked in their high heels.  Several came  to increase their confidence and others wanted to tap into their femininity.  Whatever the reason, we were joined by like-minded women in a safe non-judgmental space, ready to strut outside our comfort zone and enjoy female empowerment!!

 

Girl power was in full swing as we lined up for the first STRUT of the afternoon.  Did I say that the afternoon was full of laughter, cuddles and high fives?  And the best part of it all is that women all made new friends.

We finished with a quiz and the winners won some delicious cupcakes.  It was a great way to refresh everyone’s minds on what we had learnt in the Masterclass.

The event ended in true Madam Storm style. We celebrated the graduation of my now confident, sexy, elegant stutters by awarding each lady a certificate and welcomed them to that exclusive group of Certificated Strutters.  It only needed a toast to the successful Strutters, so we broke out the prosecco and mingled with our new-found friends.

And of course we got our instagram pics and selfies in!!!!!

 

We’re so, what?,...... SEXY

I was joined on the 29th April by a lovely group of women attending my STRUT Masterclass.  This is the class that teaches women how to walk sexily and confidently in their high heels.  

We started off the session by welcoming one another into our safe space.  A space of no judgement of others or ourselves. A space created for women to STRUT into their power. The next step was to coach these beautiful women how to stand in their stilettos because, let’s face it, if we can’t stand in them we have no chance of walking in them.

As a therapist and a confidence coach, I'm a great believer that everything starts with the mind.  I believe that whatever it is we are thinking, our bodies project it. This is why I introduced affirmations into my masterclass.

600x800image3.jpg

The first affirmation I introduced is I AM HERE.  This means I am present, I own my space. Now, with the mind right, they were ready to embody those words, by standing up straight, shoulders pinned back, core engaged, chest up. Now that they are looking strong and confident, I introduced the first Strut. The Power STRUT is first, followed by The Diva, The Sass, The Seductress and The Pussycat STRUT. Starting with the Power Strut – the Strut that commands attention in any situation.  Continuing with Struts that become progressively bolder, sexier and more intimate. Each Strut is different, with a different purpose and effect. But in each case the technique remains the same:

Step 1 Stand tall, shoulders back, core engaged, chest up

Step 2 Step with right foot first.  Heel down followed by the sole of the foot. Repeat with left foot.

The afternoon was electric, buzzing with energy and fun.  Many of my beautiful ladies came on their own, but they all soon made friends and connected with the other women. STRUT is so much more than a Masterclass that teaches women how to walk in high heels.  It’s a movement, a sisterhood, a celebration of womanhood.

The afternoon finished in true Madam Storm style, accompanied by a special guest, my partner Mr Marcus, I showcased my Art of Seduction Masterclass , where the ladies witnessed me seducing him with a few simple movements , as I strutted towards him.

800x600AOS233.jpg

We then gave out certificates after all my ladies were now professional STRUTTERS. We toasted the occasion with a glass of prosecco.

Remember, How you walk says a lot about a you.  You only have one shot to make a good impression. Make it a memorable one!!!!!

The Power Strut catwalk

IMG-20180308-WA0005.jpg

It was the 4th March, when I walked into a room full of beautiful vibrant women.  Straight away I felt at ease as their spirit was warm and their faces were inviting.  They all smiled at me.

One lady said ‘Hi General’. I was surprised and humbled that they knew who I was.

I had arrived a bit early, so I had the pleasure of sitting in on their meeting.  Silvia Petretti, an activist for women with HIV who had organised the event had the floor  Her passion for the cause was clear to see.  I sat back in excitement and admiration.

She gave me the floor and we got to Strutting! I delivered a 2-hour STRUT Masterclass, teaching the women how to own their space and walk confidently in their stilettos.  Mind you most of them were in trainers.

We went through the dress rehearsal with fun and sass - the transformation was incredible. These were women who had never strutted down the catwalk before.  Some were more nervous than others, but with coaching and Chaka Khan Im every woman playing in the background, the ladies began to relax and have fun.

They were stepping outside their comfort zone and grew with every strut. We strutted, posed, laughed and recited affirmations together, such as I AM HERE and Amandla Awethu, which means The Power Is Ours.  Together we created a safe supportive space.  The room was full of encouragement, passion and love for one another.  I felt totally connected with the women straight away.

With just a few days to go until The Power Catwalk I left there confident knowing they were going to ace it.  But nothing could of prepared me for the overwhelming feeling of love I felt on the day as I watched in front row these beautiful women STRUT down the catwalk.

Tears rolled down my face as I watched each and every one of them strut into their power.  And in that moment, I knew this was much bigger than me.  In that moment, I knew this was where I was supposed to be!   It’s funny because, although individually they applaud me for my good work, it was they who had taught me.  It was they who inspired me, and it is those women who made me want to be a better woman.

We were also entertained by beautiful African dancing from the women and heard beautiful words by poet and activist Bakita Kasadha.  Her poems can be found here www.bakitakk.com

It was a powerful and informative evening - their message was clear.  They were not weak, feeble victims.  They were strong women on a mission to get rid of the perception that women with HIV are weak.  Many people share a misconception on what its like to be a woman living with HIV.  Many of these women with HIV face violence, poverty and stigma. This day, they showed unity and strength. Women are the second largest group to have HIV, with over 30,000 women living in the UK, the largest in Europe.  Please visit www.positivelyuk.org for more information.  They run a great support group and other amazing services.

I speak a lot on owning your space and growing through what you go through and that night I saw the words come alive.  I have never met a bunch of women who were as brave, courageous and beautiful as the women I saw that night strutting against stigma.  They were loud and proud. I AM HERE!!!!

How to achieve your GOALS!!!

What are goals? How do we achieve them? How do we deal with obstacles?

My clients often find achieving goals challenging due to work and family commitments. Others don’t know where to start, and some believe it's too late to fulfil their desires; believing their goals are just dreams that will never become a reality!

I'm here to tell you that it's never too late. No matter what your circumstances are or what your financial situation is, you can achieve anything you put your mind to. Once the mind can create it, you can achieve it.     

This article is summary of key things you can do to achieve your dreams and live the life you desire. It's very simple! No jargon - just clear steps to lead you to fulfilling your goals. Everyone deserves to live a life full of love health and happiness with balance and contentment.

The first step

Have a clear vision. Be clear on what you want to achieve. Make sure you are driven by passion and not money. Trust that your passion will in return give you wealth. Too many of us our driven by money, but this does not bring happiness or contentment. Living a life with no contentment means you are never happy! So what is the point?

The second step

Visualize your goal. Be at one with your goal. Make it so clear you can touch it. Be in the moment. Feel the passion and the desire that burns within you, as this is what you will rely on to motivate yourself and keep you going when doubt starts kicking in.

The third step

Write down your goal. Ask yourself what do I need to do to achieve this goal? Ask yourself  do I need to do research? Do I need to do a course? You may need finance to help you,  and if so, how will you go about getting this loan? The important thing is not to get overwhelmed, just take small steps one at a time.

The fourth step

Write out your strategy. Have a 10-year plan. Complete a timeline - include family and friend time, be sure to include Me Time. This will allow you to regenerate! Having a balanced life is KEY! Create a success list, then ask yourself what is the ONE thing I need to focus on today this week this month this year? In order to make my business/personal life successful, write your goals on a white board and keep it visible. Visualise your goals like dominos once one has set off, the rest will follow.

The fifth step

Protect your goal. Learn how to say 'no'! Do not allow anyone or anything to stand in your way. Keep believing in yourself and never ever give up! Remember, you deserve to live your dream and are capable of fulfilling your aspirations. Create a vision board and continue to visualise your goals. If you desire a successful company, imagine yourself at your desk...

The golden rule

Take responsibility and be honest with yourself. Choose today! Do you want to be a loser or a winner? Winners don't live in the past; they use their experiences - good or bad- to influence their present. You are no longer a victim, but a survivor; a warrior of life. Your battles make you a better fighter and your wounds are just reminders of the battles you have overcome. It shows your strength and is a reminder of where you were. Now, let's get you ready for the future!  

Helpful Tips

When in self-doubt, have a word with yourself. Be honest about the reason(s) why you're doubting your ability. Could it be that you're scared? Scared of what others may think? Scared of failure? Scared of showing everyone how much you want something? This is called fear. Fear is just a reminder that you're doing something new; something worthwhile. Trust in yourself and step outside your comfort zone. There is no shame in not succeeding the first time; the best lessons are learnt this way. Take note and learn from it and try again, but this time you be better prepared you will be a person who has learnt from their mistake(s) you would of learnt about your strengths and weaknesses. Be prepared to make many more mistakes and enjoy the journey and the excitement of perfecting your goal, keep growing, keep going and NEVER GIVE UP!

Everyone deserves to live their dreams. Start today. Start now. Start this very minute and STRUT into your POWER!!!!
