CÉCILE BASTIEN REMY
International Presentation Skills Trainer • Speaker
Cécile’s success as a Public Speaking/Presentation Trainer and Keynote Speaker is embedded in her transformation over a journey that started at the same point you are likely facing today. Cécile’s energy & confidence is what she draws upon to instil confidence and authority in the top leaders and professionals she works with to perfect their public speaking craft.
Cécile enjoyed a successful 15-year career in Sales in London, Paris & Geneva in which she negotiated international contracts for Risk Management software with major Banks. She then provided Trade & Branding solutions for International Organizations, Pharmaceutical & Telecom companies. However, upon moving to Zürich in 2012 Cécile underwent a career change that would launch herself into the realm of Public Speaking and Presentation.
From being paralyzed with fear at her first public presentation, to speaking on the “Red Dot” at TEDx…
As the Co-Author and Promoter of two guide books for Expats in 2009 & 2012, Cécile experienced her first taste of the communication industry. Soon after, she joined the International Public Speaking Club Toastmasters where she is still an active member. From that point, a spell was cast and her immersion in the field of Public Speaking soon began.
Quickly it became obvious that her calling was in helping others develop their Public Speaking and Presentation Skills. In early 2015, training sessions such as "Present with Confidence" and "Woman on the Podium" garnered much attention within the Zürich professional community. Her high energy and hands-on approach quickly made her the partner of choice for those wanting to become the confident speaker they want to be.
Soon thereafter, Cécile would compete at the International level in both English & French, culminating in her delivering her signature keynote speech “Bounce Forward” at the TEDx – PolitecnicoDiTorino Event in late 2019.
Speak4Impact was launched in 2016 to transmit Cécile’s experience using her proprietary speechcraft method to everyone from Entrepreneurs and leaders of SMEs to the C-Suite of global firms.
