My experience as a performer, choreographer, writer, teacher and psychologist has provided me with a rich basis from which to devise moving talks and engage the audience, which I thoroughly enjoy. See the bottom of this page for feedback.

Talk for INSET Day on the Benefits and Relevance of CPD for Teachers
All Saints School, West Wickham
TALKS FOR EDUCATION PROVIDERS AND TUITION CENTRES
It Starts Here: Preparing Your Child for University
A talk for parents who have children in Years 9-11. This talk informs parents of the requirements of a successful personal statement for university applications, particularly in the most competitive subjects, which will need to be completed in Year 12. As a coach in the writing of these personal statements, with 100% success rate to date, I provide invaluable information on the experience and preparation needed to be able to secure that prized offer.
TALKS FOR ORGANISATIONS
You might be looking for a public speaker to motivate, inspire and entertain your audience in an upcoming event, or maybe need someone to organise and lead a workshop that will motivate and support your workers in acquiring particular skills that will benefit the organisation as a whole. Below are areas that have been covered:
Happiness in a Nutshell
Anxiety and its Effects
Communication and Teamwork
" The talk was very informative and gave me useful strategies I can
apply straight away to raise the motivation of certain students who I
feel are falling behind. Thank you for the inspiration." J.O.
" Before the talk, I thought of motivation as something that had to come
from within the pupil, and therefore out of my control. But now I realise
that there are simple techniques I can use to encourage students
along the way. Thank you. " M.D.
" Your talk was very inspiring and had us all fully engaged throughout. I
loved the humorous, yet poignant delivery." J.S.
