I want to help you inspire, motivate and inform your delegates or students and help you deliver your event successfully. As a speaker with 30+ years experience in education, business and enterprise I can help with keynote, workshop facilitation or MC support. Due to the changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, I am now offering all of my talks virtually on the video-conferencing software your setting prefers.

NEWSFLASHProfessionally-recorded virtual keynotes and workshops are now available for annual licensing – meaning you can show them as many times as you wish for one annual fee! Contact us for details and offers.

Like most of us, I’ve had great experiences and also some tough and terrible times – both me and members of my family – and our workshops and my talks are made of these experiences. I talk about tough subjects in an engaging, humorous and inspiring way and the talks are all made relevant to you and your audience through a process of discussion and tailoring so you can be sure that you get what you need for your event, school, INSET session, business conference or charity event. 

What do people say? When people give me feedback about the way our workshops or my talks have made them feel it’s a great compliment. 

Since 2014 I’ve been a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association of the UK and Ireland. This is the highest level of membership and is your guarantee of professional service and ethics. It also means that my craft and technique are constantly developing through my professional and challenging network of peers.

Two of the workshops I deliver – Life By The Balls and Rule of Thumb – both support charity partners – Orchid Cancer Care and Refuge respectively.

I was fortunate to be asked to deliver a talk at TEDxWhitehaven in September 2016. Summarising our experience of working with companies and young people over the past 14 years the talk was entitled Engineering Random Opportunities to Succeed and can be seen here.

Email me if you think I can help or would like to discuss your event, workshop or keynote requirements here.
