Get a woman's point of view on business and tech for your event, panel or podcast

I have been speaking and presenting on stage or in front of a camera for 20+ years including running 100’s of tech and media workshops in schools across Australia, TV presenter and producer of ‘Straight Talk’, hosted women’s events across Australia for 5 years, interviewed 200 plus guests on my podcast shows, have been interviewed multiple times in the media, been published numerous times in magazines, print and digital, produced and presented video training workshops, run training and facilitation of teams, and I currently lead an executive team and staff remotely for The Room Xchange.

I love sharing a woman’s point of view on business and tech. I love communicating. Crafting a good message and being able to deliver it in a way that relates to the audience is something I pride myself in. I am open to sharing my personal experiences openly and candidly. A good story well told is a story that will always be remembered. You can download my press and speakers kit here.
