I’m pretty crazy about words.
And one of my favourite places to use them is on a stage in front of people I can persuade to feel the same!
So whether it’s about the ins and outs of brand voice, the make-or-break power of language in business and selling, or my positively evangelistic rantings about content creation in digital projects, you’ll often find me speaking at some kind of Meetup, conference, or networking event.

PODCAST: Find your voice
Airing on 8 November 2019
Less of an interview and more of a good old-fashioned chinwag about building a brand, check out my upcoming episode on the Simply Marketing podcast. The show is aimed particularly at very small businesses (often one-woman/man bands) so I’m mainly mulling over how you can find the voice that works for your business when your business is pretty much just you!
PODCAST: Learning how to find a brand’s voice
Airing on 12 November 2019
What on earth is having a brand voice all about? What are the differences you have to consider when writing for a big business versus a small or solo venture? How do you keep your writing consistent across different marketing channels? Where do emojis fit into a brand’s voice?! These are all things I’ll be chatting about in an interview on the super-helpful Marketing Study Lab podcast – so tune in and join me!
