After leaving my last employed role I decided to take back control of my professional and personal life, rent out my newly built home, and take off for the adventure of a lifetime; I truly believe this experience adds to my skill as an entertaining and motivational speaker.
Along with my husband Tom, and our two Parson Russell Terriers – Rosie and Martha -we have spent over two years travelling and experiencing some twenty plus European countries (with a couple of last minute flights back to the UK when family ‘challenges’ occurred). Martha (a very clever canine) blogged the trip, which I have edited in order for ‘Travels with Martha‘ to be available as an e-book and paperback in August 2015.
Public Speaking – Social Groups and Clubs
Whether you want me to focus on our adventures whilst travelling, or on the disciplines of writing/blogging/studying within the confines of a caravan, I will tailor my talk to your groups needs. During our travels I have also written and published two business books and continued my studies for a B.A. Honours degree in English Language and Literature, through the Open University.
I am happy to talk on any aspect of this trip – whether it is travel, the experience of living in various countries, the thrills of discovering so many new sights – one after another – studying so far from home without any study-buddies, keeping in touch with home via frustrating WiFi connections etc. It certainly wasn’t the preferred environment in which to study and write, but my recollections have certainly amused some of the guests at events when I been asked to speak.
Speaking at Business Events
I am an accomplished public speaker, having spoken at many conferences and being a guest speaker at various professional meetings and events. Whether you need a motivational speaker to inspire and drive delegates to take action, or someone to share ideas and encourage delegates to increase performance, I have a wealth of knowledge, and a common sense approach, which enables those listening to go away motivated with a can-do attitude.
After Dinner Speaking
Often known as the ‘graveyard slot’, when your guests have eaten (lunch or dinner) and are feeling full and content, my enthusiastic style of speaking will certainly liven them up. I am happy to speak on many topics such as lifestyle changes, travelling around Europe, and how to maintain a positive attitude – whatever life throws at you. Having a real interest in people ensures that my talks will appeal to, and entertain, your guests, as I tailor my talk to meet their requirements.
