It's Not All About Me But This Bit Is!
As a Presentation Coach, I help purpose driven, visionary entrepreneurs achieve incredible success through sharing their message in a passionate, authentic and stylish way on international stages and video.
I'm so passionate about this because I believe that every single person should have a voice and should use their voice to motivate, inspire and empower others.
There was a time I didn't have a voice.
I was brought up in a religious cult with a strict father who dictated what I could say, when I could say it and who I could speak to. I was raised to be a wife and mother and be submissive to my husband. My father chose all my school subjects for me, in line with my future 'career', needlework, cookery and childcare. I wasn't allowed to have an opinion or challenge anything because that meant that I would be thrown out of the religion and shunned by my friends and family.
I believed that if you had a voice and an opinion you would be alone in this world.
Well thankfully I had fire in my belly and at 16 I left home and started a new life. I learnt that it was ok to challenge and have an opinion. I found people who helped and supported me and gave me the confidence to live my life on my terms.
I spoke and performed on stages and travelled the world for 10 years before coming back to the UK. After working over 20 years in corporate as a senior leader and training and mentoring thousands of people on public speaking and talking to camera, I decided that enough was enough, moved to the seaside, embraced my inner hippy and re-trained as a Personal Stylist at the London College of Fashion.
My vision is to create a million voices....a million people to stand up and speak their truth. #millionvoices.
I live in Brighton, UK with my partner Kev and our 1973 VW Campervan called Flossy.
