Owning the room is something that Viv Groskop is more than familiar with. As well as perfecting the art personally, throughout her career, she has interviewed a slew of high profile women from around the world to uncover the secrets of brilliant speaking and explore the source of power and authority when people speak. 

But it’s not always the big moments that matter. Who do we need to BE to be effortlessly confident in the tiny moments too?

Viv Groskop is an award-winning writer, comedian, TV and radio presenter and she’s on a mission to encourage and support others to find their voice and be heard. In the week where her latest book, Happy High Status, is published, she shares her experience of tackling the baggage and judgement we carry around confidence so that we can speak up when it matters most. 

This episode is for women who want to get over their fears and effortlessly give voice to their mission!


Viv Groskop is an award-winning writer, comedian, TV and radio presenter, and author of the international best-seller How to Own the Room: Women and the Art of Brilliant Speaking.

How to Own the Room has also grown into a chart-topping podcast about confidence and self-belief featuring guests like Hillary Clinton, Nigella Lawson and Trinny Woodall, now in its 20th series and with 2 million downloads.

Her new book Happy High Status: How to Be Effortlessly Confident (Torva) is out in June: “Reassuring, inspiring and wise — a practical handbook for anyone held back by self-doubt” — Julia Samuel.
