Finding a purpose
Sometimes the detour turn out to be the scenic route.
I had a career I loved as neonatal intensive care midwife, when life sent me on a detour. A virus destroyed a significant amount of my hearing and I could no longer work as a midwife.
I struggled to come to terms with hearing loss. My confidence plummeted and I became afraid to speak up.
My fate changed when I got the chance to take part in a research trial to get a cochlear implant. Learning to hear again led me to my transformational journey to becoming a professional speaker.
My expertise lies in empowering leaders to harness the power of business storytelling to inspire and entertain their audiences.
As a keynote speaker, I can share with your delegates how to step up and speak with confidence and leverage the power of storytelling.
