I’m an engaging and inspiring public speaker who has worked as a freelancer in the media industry since I was a child. By telling my story I aim to inspire the next generation to work towards and achieve their ambitions.
Since becoming a mum, I feel even more passionately about sharing some of the pearls I’ve learnt along the way. And I must be doing something right, as I’m chuffed to bits to be recognised as one of the 100 most influential women in the West in both 2018 and 2019.
I’m often asked to speak wearing my ‘Freelance Mum hat’. Subjects I can talk on include; networking, networking with children, following your dreams, small businesses, the small business community, working in the media, setting up your own business and running a business around family.
