Presentation Skills – Public Speaking – Communication -Leadership

Do you want to make every presentation, pitch or conversation count?
I can help!
Trusted advisor to business owners and senior executives for the past 30 years.

I’m a bit obsessed about making an impact. When you speak out and have your message heard, the ripple effect can be enormous. I’ve been busy helping experts, entrepreneurs and organisations to grow their business and their brands by harnessing the power of speaking, powerful presenting and high-level communication for the past 30 years.  I love the results I get working closely with my clients, knowing that when I’m done, they now have the confidence, knowledge and skills to have a real impact on the people and organisations they work with. As the CEO of the Global Institute of Training and Presenting I am fortunate enough to work with some of Australia’s largest companies. Whether it’s training your staff, crafting your brand message, pitching to the board, leading your team or presenting at a conference, I want to help you to get your message across and leave that lasting impression. I enjoy working with business and organisational leaders who are committed to making an IMPACT.

I’m just as addicted to achieving your goals as you are.

Proud to be a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) The CSP designation is the speaking profession’s highest earned international measure of professional platform competence.
