Public Speaking and Presenting

Pippa Stacey, disabled speaker, outdoors in her small black powerchair. She's smiling with her hands in her lap, wearing denim dungarees with a white top and with her long brown hair down.

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 relatable Yorkshire lass for your project, count me in!

Whatever your goals are, 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 businesses and organisations, presented podcast episodes, advocated for causes on television and radio, and even been let loose with my own TEDx talk.

As a disabled speaker, it’s important to make clear that I do not embody or advocate the classic ‘you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to!!!’ trope most often seen in the media. I’m not a superhero, and 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 the power of following nobody’s path but your own.

If you’ll have me, I’d love to share that with you. Scroll down to find out more, or drop me an email at [email protected]!
