Public speaking courses, photography & more!

My main work is as a public speaking coach/trainer for people who don’t like public speaking, helping them move through the fear to a place where they can be fully themselves.

I also help people to re-think their presentations and to make them exciting for the presenter and far more importantly the audience. We need to learn how to be at ease and connect with an audience and then we can shine.

Deep down my passion is about helping people get the most out of their lives. So we can take our place in the world without worrying about it. To flourish and to be fully present with our audience and ourselves.

It’s a great job and very rewarding.

I’ve been training in Appreciative Inquiry which I also love and would love to hear from you if you share that passion too.

Alongside my training work I do photographic projects for designers and architectural clients and for myself. My dad gave me my first camera when I was 13.

And my last job? – I started the Spark magazine and edited it for over 15 years! I feel very blessed to have been involved. I really miss the people, the tremendous fun and the creativity. I am still very proud of how we worked together. Come on the Spark!
