London360 List Blog: “The Music Industry was like Mars to Me,”: Alesha Dixon

Hi Everyone! 🙂

Here is my list I did for London360 in October 2015 about London360 Ambassador Alesha Dixon:

Alesha Dixon is a London360 Ambassador, Judge on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent Show and Singer. She visited the Media Trust in West London on the 13th October 2015 and gave a Press Conference for London360 Multimedia Genius Trainee Journalists.

Alesha talked about her new album called “Do It For Love,” her life so far and her achievements to date. She talked about her time at BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, how she overcame the attacks made by the Press and how this made who she is now.

She is a mother and balances her time with running her own record label. Alesha has support from her mother when she and her partner are busy. She is also a big fan of surprises but was surprised when the Trainee Journalists wished her a happy birthday towards the end of the conference.

Here are Alesha’s top ten pieces of advice:

  1. Always aim for longevity and try to live your life as best as you can.
  1. Follow your own intuition and instinct.
  1. Who you are counts on what you do and treat people respectfully.

  1. Don’t ever compromise your creative and instinctive ability.

  1. If your soul knows what you want to say for a song, you must find a way to facilitate it.
  1. The industry can knock you out but try and de-attach from it.
  1. Finally, look at the fear as an opportunity to move forward and life is too short so take risks more.

Before Alesha left, she was asked about whether former bandmates from Mis-Teeq and her will do a reunion tour. She said she wouldn’t rule it out and will only do it for the right reasons.

London360 List Blog: How to be a Powerful Public Speaker

Hi Everyone! 🙂

Here is my list I did for London360 in October 2015 about Public Speaker Naomi Sesay:

Naomi Sesay is an Author, Professional Speaker and Wealth Creator who visited the Media Trust in West London on the 7th October 2015. She gave a session on the power of public speaking to London360 Multimedia Genius Trainee Journalists.

Here are her top ten pieces of advice on how to be a powerful public speaker:

  1. Body Language is 55% of communication. This is so important as is your image, presence, poise and projection. From the moment you leave the door of your house you are on stage.
  1. Your voice is also important. This is because people can detect a lot of things from it. Words, articulation, vernacular and projection are also important too. Did you know that on average we only use 500 words to describe our day?
  1. Remember that people like people who are like themselves. Having a common language also helps.
  1. Having a strong verbal language can help you become stronger. Things like register, timbre (tone) and prosody (melody) are very useful. Not forgetting your pace, pitch and volume can help too.
  1. When public speaking:
  • Know your subject.
  • Know your audience.
  • Know your style.
  1. Silence is a powerful tool and use it to your advantage. By moving across the stage/room will also keep your audience focused on you.
  1. Having an identity is key. Remember these questions:
  • Who are you?
  • What do you believe in?
  • How do you see yourself?
  • How do you think others see you?
  1. Make sure that your public identity and personal identity are completely separate from each other.
  1. Be unique, be confident and be true to yourself.
  1. Finally, there are different levels of leadership. These are:
  • Self Leadership.
  • Community Leadership.
  • Servant Leadership.
  • Call to Action.
  • Movement & Tribes.
