Public Speaking and Presenting

If you’re looking for a meticulous and high-brow public speaking professional… I’m probably not the person for you.

If, however, you’re looking for a chatty and more informal speaker to share their reality at your event or project, count me in!

Whether you’re wanting to engage your employees or prospective clients or hoping reach a whole new audience, I know just how important it is to communicate stories that leave a lasting impact. Over the past few years, I’ve spoken on panels, hosted webinars for various businesses and organisations, presented podcast episodes, advocated for causes on television and radio, and in 2019, I ticked a big ol’ thing off my bucket list and gave my first TEDx talk.

As a disabled person, it feels important to say that I do not embody or support the classic ‘you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to!!!’ trope most often seen in the media. I’m not a superhero, I’m not ‘overcoming’ my illness or beating the odds… instead, my emphasis is on doing the best you can with what you have, finding creative solutions to the barriers you face, and following nobody’s path but your own. If you’ll have me, I’d love to share that with you!
