With a background in opera, Beatrice Freeman's presence on stage is unique.

In 2008, Beatrice decided it was time to move away from Opera and retrain. As a result of the British recession at the time, Beatrice focused her attention on marketing and started working in cybersecurity. The objective was to raise cybercrime awareness and it required her to network extensively. In the process, she established herself as a top networking strategist and was interviewed in the national press. It resulted in workshop requests and this is how her company 'Personal Connection' was born. She published her top tips on building a sustainable network in the book “Introverts Make Better Networkers: How Anyone Can Succeed at Networking”.

Beatrice is also Regional Winner of the 2017 Professional Speaking Association Speaker Factor. As an After-Dinner Speaker, she impresses with her stage presence, gentle humour and original material based on her previous careers. As a Motivational Speaker, in her keynote “Success – And How To Get There”, she draws on her diverse experience and inspires to take ownership of your life by challenging commonplace myths and processes.

“I roared with laughter”; “very engaging”; “full of surprises”;

“Beatrice is different. She is warm and generous, but she takes no prisoners. She inspired me to fight for my dreams.”

“Brilliant, brilliant and brilliant - thank you so much for speaking at our ASIS seminar in the City and delivering you more than a humorous story in tandem with an operatic song. You were a huge hit with the membership and guests. Hopefully, we can entice you back.”

More About Beatrice

Beatrice learned the hard way all the things she is famous for. She had to go through fundamental change and face enormous obstacles. In the process, she discovered what works and what’s an illusion. Now she is on a mission to empower. We take far too many things for granted and we severely underestimate what we CAN do about it. You don’t have to agree to be what others think you should be. You don’t have to agree to be trapped in your b...

I invited Beatrice to perform as a stand up comedian at one of the events, I produced-World Retail Forum, March 15-16, Amsterdam. I must say she was a delight to work with and she prepares well for her performance by understanding her audience and their background, especially when she had to perform for executives from top global companies like IBM, Google, Hershey, Shell and Lidl. Beatrice’s stand up comedy was really refreshing. The uniqueness of her performance is - she can sing Opera as well. Yes, you heard it right, she can do live Opera as good as her comedy, which I am sure only a handful of people can do. It was much like a story, just great, funny, silly (clever) comedy - no pretence, no politics and no defaming. We definitely had a good laugh!
