Review this Book

You brand

A Manual for Confidence


In You brand, Julia Goodman, one of the world’s top communication coaches, has written a unique and maverick manual for personal confidence. Drawing on her successful acting career, You brand lets you in on the secrets of her one-on-one coaching – a methodology she began to develop 30 years ago which is rooted in the psychology, science and techniques of the professional Theatre. 

Full of intuitive theory and practical exercises, this book will help you connect your head, heart and body to bridge the ‘perception gap’ – the gap between how you think you come over and how people can actually experience you. It will give you a whole new understanding and self-awareness and put you more in control in any situation where you may feel exposed, vulnerable and judged. 

You brand is about projecting and performing yourself, warts ‘n all. It isn’t about being perfect or liked necessarily, but about giving you the courage, confidence and ability to “be yourself – more – with skill” … it’s a life-changer! 

“You ‘remoulded’ me to be me, and made a huge and positive difference in my life. You stand out in my career as the person who made the biggest lasting difference. Thank you with all my heart.” 
Des Crowley, speaking as CEO, Bank of Ireland UK

You Brand is very well researched and an honest-to-goodness God-send for me. It is super user friendly and easy to find exactly what I am looking for. I love the interactive entries and activities in particular. I highly recommend this book for anyone needing a little pick-me-up in their confidence or just looking to improve their self image in general.

I have yet to finish this, as it takes me longer with personal development books than regular novels, but I give this book five stars. It is easy to navigate with chapter overviews given at the beginning so you can easily search for what falls most in alignment with you at the given time.
This book has spoken to so many different aspects of myself and has helped me take a step back and really embrace myself and my perception of self and the world around me. This is a wonderful culmination of research and tools I will be implementing and sharing with those on a similar path.

This book has some great ideas for building up confidence and working towards being able to give speeches, etc. Really easy to follow action steps and tips.

A really interesting and inspiring read, very clearly written and laid out with easily navigable sections and subject breaks.

This is an ideal for anyone struggling with confidence in a modern day workplace. It give great actionable advice and activities to help build your confidence and address your perceptions of yourself and the larger world.

This would be very useful for anyone who is struggling to present themselves in a workplace, especially in meetings or public speaking.

I enjoyed how easy it is to navigate the book, the chapters are clearly laid out, and it makes it easy to move back and forth as necessary. I liked the author's tone - straight-forward, and not at all patronising, which I must admit was a concern of mine before I began reading.

I have taken away many useful techniques that I will be using and developing going forward.
