Can the stories we tell change the world?

Answering this question is what drives me. In my quest to answer that question I spend my days working with leadership teams & their organisations helping them understand, design, and tell the stories about the good work they do building responsible businesses so that may inspire positive change in the people they reach.

I'm passionate about helping solve the climate crisis and through my role as climate reality leader, I'm part of a global team developing keynote talks to businesses, community groups, and organisations about how we can meet the climate challenge crisis.

I regularly enjoy public speaking delivering keynotes at conferences or internal events as well as facilitating deeper strategic or discovery sessions. The topics I focus on are responsible business, storytelling, effective communication, and purpose-driven brand strategy.

Outside of the day job you'll more than likely find me having brilliant conversations with remarkable people through my podcast REMarkable! or I'll be more than likely out running around in the hills and trails of the UK's beautiful countryside.

If you want to speak to me about speaking at an event, facilitating a workshop, or just to say hello please feel free to do me a message.

Thank you for visiting my profile,
