5 Reasons to Hand Me the Microphone

The common words that keep coming in from my audiences that have experienced me in action are – entertaining, inspiring, energetic, engaging – “you don’t realise how much time passes, such is her ability to emotionally GRIP an audience in her hand.”

All of my clients sit at a C-suite level and like working directly with me as I speak their language, and understand their pressures of delivering shareholder value. I know what it takes to deliver ROI – which is exactly what a CEO buys.

When meeting planners work with me, they know they are getting something special, because I go beyond the call of duty in terms of my preparation and planning to ensure that their clients get far more value than they anticipated – and the meeting planners will get full credit for that!

I was born to motivate and inspire others and have been performing to audiences all my life! My approach is simplistic and practical so that my audiences never struggle to get the key “take-away” messages and leave pumped up!

I am a firm advocate of working and supporting women accelerate their own professional performance. Despite the recent progress, roughly 8% of all Fortune 500 companies are led by women. Having sat on a leadership board for 8 years as the only female surrounded by males, I know what it takes to succeed in male-dominated professional environment.
