I am Elsewine Rietveld, Feminine Presence Teacher, Trainer and Therapist. I teach professionals who want to increase their Presence, be seen and perceived in an authentic and magnetic way, and who want to speak with confidence and impact.
Years ago, when I was a student, I was afraid to speak in front of an audience bigger than 2 people. So I joined a debating club, where I learned a lot. Building up a speech, clap traps, convince on arguments, and standing in front of an audience. I participated nationally and internationally in various tournaments, and won a few prices. Once, me and my debating partner (who ended up being my life partner ever since!) won the finale of a big tournament, in front of an audience of 150 people! That has taught me a lot, although it is very different when speaking means defending a motion (regardless of your own opinion), in a special setting, a given timeframe, with a given task and structure or when speaking means telling your personal story to the audience. When you want to motivate them to do something different or convince them to work with you.
That’s where the Presence method made all the difference for me! I learned how I could be authentic, magnetic, speak with impact and be confident. This really changed my life, and I love teaching this work to others.
I live in the Netherlands with my husband, two daughters and three cats. I love to read good written chicklit novels, morning runs and Swiss mountains. And Chocolate.
