My Speaker Career


My first professional speaking engagement was as an eight-year-old at the Perth Entertainment Centre in front of 3000 people. I spoke on behalf of my primary school.

I’ve had the odd presentation to deliver at work conferences however it wasn’t until late 2015 that I found my voice and I started speaking at conferences and events about the power of mothers as consumers.

In 2018 I exceeded one of my goals to take out the ‘Take the Cake’ Best Speaker Award at the M2Moms – The Marketing to Moms Conference in New York.  This is the world’s leading event for marketers who specialise in the mom space. It is sponsored by Google and attending by leading research organisations, big brands and marketing to mom experts.  It was my third consecutive year speaking at this conference and in 2018 I delivered the closing keynote address.  I also was invited to speak in Paris at the Moms & Marketing conference where I shared my research into Australian Mums.

I am deeply focused on growing my speaker business and I am very proactive in developing engaging presentations which deliver practical recommendations which can be immediately implemented into an organisation. 

This year I have ten presentations and one workshop.  Each one of these is designed to help marketing professionals deliver an improved ROI by understanding mothers in Australia more deeply.  If you would like to see my 2019 presentations please click here to receive my 2019 Speaker Kit.

I’m not one of those speakers who arrives 30 minutes before the engagement and leaves immediately after. Instead I like to spend the day at your event engaging with your audience and providing them with the opportunity to ask questions they may have not had the opportunity to voice during my speaking session.

Should you decide to book me to present at your conference I can tell you I will be an easy speaker to work with who will look to help you promote the event to my own audience. I will look to do what I can to ensure your conference is a great event.
