As the Director and main Trainer at Talking Social Media I’m available for speaking bookings in South Wales, along the M4 corridor and across the UK. Take a look below for some video examples of previous talks given at a variety of different events.
As much as being the only English child in a Welsh school made my public speaking ability soar, that’s not my only credential. At 28, I’m young in the speaker circuit providing exuberance in a modern and exciting industry. I started speaking professionally after intense training in LA for a global travel brand, speaking in front of thousands of students across continents promoting exceptional volunteering experiences.
When I started my own business, it made complete sense to use these skills in promoting my services. Coincidentally a few weeks prior I had discovered the local speaking event Ignite Cardiff. The event is like a mash-up between Petcha Kucha and TED talks so I was instantly sold and had signed myself up.
Since then I’ve spoken at conferences, panels, design events, launch parties and a host of networking events and seminars. I like to make sure my talks are laced with ruthless pragmatism and practical advice: keeping well clear of the usual ‘social media ninja/guru’ fodder. I use real examples, case studies and results. I enjoy a great Q&A and happily host debate with delight.
I’ve been known to disrupt the occasional all-male panel after Oi15 when Andrew Grill of IBM invited me up on stage to address the gender balance. Often a big problem in the conference industry, I now speak frequently on Women in Technology, Digital and Social Media having recently completely a Post Grad in Mentoring For Entrepreneurial Practice from a gendered perspective.
Take a look at a few more subjects I speak frequently about below. Each of these topics can range in time frame according to your needs and the few listed below are by no means exhaustive.
