Begin Your Journey

“This was more than delivering a great presentation – this was a true development opportunity, with a coach who expertly challenged, coached and supported me through the entire process.”
Kelly Carter, Vice President, Legal and Compliance Goldfields

Let’s work together

A great talk can build careers, organisations and ideas. But many professionals find it hard to translate their expertise into a presentation to engage an audience.

The Strategic Speaker Methodologies I use are rigorous but not cookie-cutter.

For 10+ years I have helped numerous executives, entrepreneurs, influencers and graduates to shine, enabling personal growth, professional trajectory and business success. This includes coaching two TEDx speakers to standing ovation, helping to build the annual WIMWA summit into an industry cornerstone and supporting innovation ecosystems like Startup Shakeup and Global Sisters. In 2017 I gave my own TEDx talk that led to an important partnership for the social enterprise I co-founded.
