Angela De Souza

“Unleashing Potential”

Angela’s passion is Metacognition, a methodology that sets true thought leaders apart from everyone else. The ability to master one’s mind is one of the most basic, yet most powerful, skills to develop and those who do so will find it easier to get through rough patches, catapult ahead of competitors, think outside the box and generally find more creative solutions in business and life.

A regular speaker across the UK, Angela speaks to the SME market as well as to individuals about their development and growth.

Angela is keen to ensure that all businesses and business owners mental well-being is taken care of so they can also improve their relationship with those around them and whom they lead, as they are able to assess their thought processes and reframe the way they think to adapt to new situations. Angela can speak about Metacognition at schools, companies, churches, conferences and even on a soapbox on the street corner if needs be as the message is relevant and necessary for all to hear. Young people would achieve better grades and have a more fulfilled education if trained in metacognition, employees and teams would be more productive and happier with their new found awareness, startups may survive the rough patches during the early days and the knock-on effect would affect business, families, the economy and ultimately the nation!  Metacognition is a must for all.

Angela De Souza is on a mission to unlock the potential that exists within each and every business. She is a prolific writer, author of 29 books with several more in progress. Each book is written in plain English by offering a no-nonsense approach to business and life.  The words go from the page to the stage as Angela shares her message as a motivational speaker, trainer and the founder of the national business support network, Women’s Business Club

Angela is trained by Andy Harrington at the Public Speaker’s University and she speaks at events across the UK for both business and/or personal development to men and women. Her talks can range from 20-minute inspiration slots to full-length keynotes and all day training. 

In her spare time, Angela prefers to do simple things such as decorate her house, have cuddles with her husband, children and grandchildren on the sofa in pyjamas or practice her piano or Bob Ross painting. 

Cost: £4,500 per talk plus first class travel and accomodation for 2.
