Speaking & Events
I like speaking to audiences. I love leading workshops.
I've spent the last few years giving talks and workshops that focus on knowing your identity and using your voice in a way that feels authentic and truthful. I have spoken at such as Blogtacular and Nuffnang UK as well as lead workshops at Makelight and Woollinn Dublin. I also regularly chair panels and live interviews at events such as LightHouse Books during their Feminist Fortnight.
I'm a regular interview guest in print, online and broadcasting. (See my press page for more details). I've built a reputation for the kind of honesty and openheartedness that packs a punch.
Topline Presentations include:
Developing Your Voice
Based on my experiences as a global brand manager as well as a successful blog and podcast host, this is where we dig into where personal meets professional. Navigating staying true to yourself as well as your business goals can be a tricky route to navigate for anyone. This is about stepping forward with confidence in a way that suits you best while feeling authnetic and truthful.
Building an Online community
Over the years I've built large communities around my own social media, Patreon and the blog. I've also helped independent creators and brands reach the numbers they need. This isn't about the numbers though, this is about reflecting a diverse and inclusive space that is sensitive to both your needs and those joining your community. This is about conversations, something I love to host.
Improving Your Photography
I've been shooting lifestyle, product and studio images for brands and individuals for over 5 years. I specialise in using natural light and working with your current resources and budget. This often means smart phone photography, simple studio set ups or getting your DSLR off auto. Storytelling is at the heart of everything that I do, including photography. Learn how to achieve this too.
Requirements for events:
Event spaces must be fully accessible to all. Everything I do seeks to be as inclusive as possible so I prefer to support events that seek diverse representation in their panels and speakers, marketing and the way they build community. I actively encourage event organisers to consider bursaries or scholarships for low income/ SES attendees.
