Honest Signalling Mastery TM

Wanna know what really annoyed me as a scientist?!

  • Seeing passionate and talented scientists give the most BOOORING AF presentations (no offence to anyone but let's be honest here...)

  • The fact that poor presentation impacts THE IMPACT of the work!! (my brain screams "but this could be soooo good if only...!!")

  • And the fact that we just accept it. We just bare with boring and confusing... and pretend it means it's "serious" or it's "complicated".


You CAN give impactful presentations even if you are shy, a non-native speaker or not confident (exhibit A: see photo on your left, me during my PhD).


Imagine if you went to a very prestigious cooking school in Paris &

had developed this unique lip-smacking custard

but decided NOT to invest in your plating skills

because you KNOW it's good... 


well... your food would still be good but it is less likely that

  • people will get/want to experience your food; 

  • you'll have your own restaurant OR featured in magazines;

  • you'll be discovered for the next Top Chef/Master competition, right?


Honest Signalling MasteryTM

Believe it or not,


Because whether you want to communicate your work to 1, 15 or 1000 people, all you have to do is these 3 things:

1. Show up like the (honest) human you are - I know sometimes you don’t feel like a human… but guess what… a lot of us don’t… it’s the paradox of being human

2. Talk about what you love (signal away my friend!)

3. Tell them why it’s important and useful for them to know (that is where the mastery is)

Strangely enough, that can actually be pretty hard at first. So let me guide you.

3 Simple principles. 6 Coaching calls.

To keep yourself and your listener out of confusion, overwhelm & boredom

& start loving making your work shine!

Learn how to ask yourself the right questions often & early, structure your presentations so people want to listen; and the tool that got one of my projects from second tier to funded. It's all part of the PLANNING stage.

Learn how to CREATE a presentation that your listeners WANT to look watch and listen by really owning in on every aspects of the "less is more" concept; and learning how to troubleshoot your presentation.



That's where we talk about what to do once you have your cool presentation but still need to PRESENT it AND... well you're still you. That were we talk neuro-science, nervous system and tips & trick to not stay stuck in "shyness".


It's NOT all about tips and tricks... sometimes we get stuck... sometimes we need to "reprogram" our brain...

and that's what we do in coaching calls. We get you un-stuck.

Note: I am an introvert and HSP, not a drill sergeant. 

Do you know why it's called "Honest Signalling Mastery"?

Well, if you are an ecologist or biologist you might.

But if, like me you’re an engineer & scientist (the kind that blows stuff up as a friend would say), you might not… so here is the story:


In the weeks I was designing this course, I shared one evening with my BFF - who happens to be an ecologist -  my “marketing” approach for my coaching business and for this course… telling her:


"I am more like a baker who let’s the people in the street smell the smell of freshly baked bread and let them come to the bakery, than a salesperson (who builds a sales funnel etc) you know… I tend to work on referral from happy clients/bread eaters or walk-bye smellers…


As I was saying this I saw the lightbulb in her head light up, and she said:

“Oh yes, your marketing is like honest signalling in sexual selection!””


Me (process and material engineering scientist):


Her: “Yeah you know honest signalling! In biology, they’re signals that reliably convey useful information to the receiver but they have to be true (ie. reliable + useful = honest), they can’t be fake*". (*like some sales techniques that are taught)

And then I realised… that is also what good presentations that create connections are about!


Wikipedia (don’t judge me or  do ... we all do it 😂) writes:

“Honest biological signals do not need to be perfectly informative, reducing uncertainty to zero [...]. Ultimately the value of the signalled information depends on the extent to which it allows the receiver to increase its fitness.[10]"


Now, replace "fitness" by "knowledge"… and BOOM that is all you need!

You don’t have to have it completely figured out.

You need to communicate the knowledge you DO have that will benefit your audience’s knowledge, understanding or reflection.


Honest signalling. Not perfect communicating.

Bottom line, I believe:
the way we present reflects the way we show up in life.

The Clarity Wizard

I’ve spent 12 years crafting presentations and helping others improve theirs (not full time of course… I also had lab work to do!).

But I started noticing the power of presentations wayyy before that… when I was studying.


You see, I was a very shy & introverted young woman (to the point that my dada confessed to me later that he was worried I wouldn't make friends at Uni) and I never considered myself a brilliant student, engineer or scientist (although I was always very hard working) but I noticed I had one thing on my side:


I knew how to present what I did, in a way that left that my teachers, supervisors, students and audience in general with a sense of clarity.


And I believe that this is what led me to

  • Get offered a PhD position right after presenting my M.Eng thesis

  • Get offered a job during my PhD

  • Get asked to lecture more by students


Plus, overtime, I found that there is no better way  to clarify things for yourself than to make them clear for others.


So in this course, I teach you

  • The approach I used to re-write the summary of a bid which went from 2nd Tier to getting funded

  • The principle I used to present at my first international conference ever and got me looking so confident people didn't realise I had vomited just the day before

  • The approach I used to get “best poster award” at my very first conference and a professor to tell me “wouha, I though, I was told that was complicated! It’s the first time I really understand it”

  • The principles and practices I use to this day to “un-shy” and took me from having ZERO social media presence to having made over 600 posts in a year and promoting this course!

Now the serious bit:


Déborah Le Corre (aka. Dr Débi) holds an M. Eng, M.BA and PhD in Science and is a former senior scientist and team leader (in NZ Crown Research Institute) whose passion for helping people outgrew that of science; and thus became a coach.

She works with people, from all genders and cultural backgrounds, including those who experience pre/post burn-out, post-concussion syndrome, light post-traumatic syndrome, A.D.H.D, A.S.D, HSP and/or mood disorders; and want to implement change in their life/career.


Deborah channels her joyful and curious nature to understand the underlying root cause of confusion, indecision and inaction. She shares evidence-based tools and theories; and helps her client use them to make confident choices and actions.


Outside of her professional interests, Deborah enjoys yoga, Pilates, cooking, pottery, hiking, biking, and any water/bathing activity

Let's make your presenting
(and living)
clear, fun & sound like you!
