Guest Speaking

“I have spoken in many countries about things that matter to me and found they matter to most people. Ideas about our capacity, what holds us back, what might release us, what might ignite our capacity and abilities and what we make a stand for, are all ideas worthy of investigation and revelation. We all want to be more, do more, connect more, achieve more, in whatever ways that has relevance and meaning in our lives. When I speak, I speak from the heart and I speak about daily life and daily examples of how and where we can make a difference. The concepts are simple, although not always easy. I love great conversations with a high-quality inquiry driving them, where audiences can share time, relate and think afresh.”

Corporate Training

“We spend approx one third of our lives asleep, one third of our lives awake and the other third at work. Percentage wise, half of our lives (now often more) is spent at work. Therefore the relationships and the interactions we are involved with whilst at work need to be functioning, worthy, productive. I have always loved looking at opening up our inner resources and seeing and feeling how much easier it is to work and operate in ‘gain’ rather than ‘drain’. Finding out what triggers each is important and never more so than in the companies and organizations where we spend over half of our lives.  For me, corporate training sits inside this context. The results I see never cease to astound me in what people are capable of once certain doors are open.”

Directing

“Crafting a piece of theater that can touch, move and inspire has always held a deep fascination for me. The fact that an audience gives up 2 – 3 hours of their lives in order to sit, watch, and listen, brings with it an enormous responsibility for the creative artists involved. Matched with this responsibility is the joining of ingenious minds and hearts of the actors in the creative process and finally the power, magic and wonder of the live theatre event itself.  Directing is something I cherish and my commitment couldn’t be stronger knowing what both the audience deserves and what is possible with amazing actors giving their all.”

Writing

“My first book was published when I was 25 years old and my next two when I was 35. My most recent book was published at age 53 and my next will be published at age 60. It is quite a profound journey for a writer to wrestle out of the ether and from their own practical experiences and have it come to rest on the page. I have always been committed to writing what I feel most deeply works and what I feel makes all the difference in our creative field. Whether I am speaking to actors, teachers or directors through my writing, I aim to always find the ways of opening new doorways where more of what’s possible for all of us resides.”

Corporate Events

“Give me a stage and some time on it and I’ll give you an unforgettable event.  I believe moments in corporate launches, conferences and events can be magic. I have seen audiences rise to their feet as they never expected to see and feel what they did. I have felt audiences transported from their business environment and become totally enthralled in what only live performance can achieve. From small events that can also have bang and make their mark, to events involving hundreds of guests, the true power of unique story telling fired with imagination and speaking the message of the moment, is always my aim and guarantee.”

Workshops

“I have worked with top companies and organizations and found the same thing in all of them: people are people, and the majority of people want to connect in ways that bring out the best in themselves as well as everyone around them.  A two hour space in time can achieve a lot. With an environment that calls people to the present moment and which also embraces a sense of fun and freedom, people can truly come to life. Workshops can target any aspect required from a group at work and can enliven elements within that group which would take them to higher ground. Trust, quality communication, team leverage, individual authenticity, and simple exploration about what’s important, all lie within the context of tailored workshops. Education and self-reflection, I believe, is the greatest gift each person can offer themselves.”
