Categorised as an ‘Inspirational’ and ‘Educational’ speaker and consultant, I’ve moderated panels and spoken at numerous events and workplaces, including: Google Zürich, Creative Mornings, ImpactHUB/CoLab Zürich, Zürich Transmedia and WriteCon Zürich.


I specialise in (and love speaking about) two main areas: 

  • The Protagonist Mindset
  • Clean Communications

To enquire about speaking or pulling me in on webinars, feel free to send me an email. Details on my connect page.

Protagonist Mindset

  • Going the distance: Thriving in the project economy
  • Plot Twist: Become the author of your next Career Pivot

Clean Communications

  • Interrupting the Story: The power of the stories we tell ourselves
  • Constructive and Clean: Communicating for change

My interest in Leadership as a skill that can be learned stems partly from the parenting journey (I am a mother of two teenagers), and partly from having lived and worked in numerous different cultural contexts, including Australia, Malaysia, the UK, the USA and now Switzerland. I am co-founder of The Powerhouse Network for Professional Women in Zürich, and The Woolf Quarterly Online, and my university cultural studies background (ANU) with 20+ years of experience across narrative media means I have a sharp lens on the way story emerges and is crafted to communicate ideas in the 21C digital context. I’ve taught screenwriting at university, am a novelist and prize-winning short story writer, and I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Professional Communication.
