Frequently asked questions
Public speaking is something I feel passionately about.
Q. Do you only attend public speaking events?
No. I enjoy sharing my story in a variety of ways. I have spoken at events and conferences to thousands of people, delivered motivational talks to wounded veterans and hospital patients, engaged with small groups of colleagues for businesses, charities, organisations and brands, and spoken to students in schools, colleges and universities. My talks can also offer an enjoyable and engaging alternative when motivating employees or students in workshop sessions.
Q. Can you adapt to fit with our needs?
Yes, I am regularly asked to share my story during specific weeks when schools, businesses and brands want to demonstrate an example of positive mental health, determination, resilience, motivation and inspiration and can focus on specifics related to my own personal experiences.
Q. Can you perform public speaking online?
Yes. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic I have been engaging with various organisations and individuals remotely, and am able to participate in speaking events and conferences online.
Q. What is your style of speaking?
When I speak I like to keep the audience engaged by presenting my story, experiences and advice in an informal, humorous manner that can be relevant in any setting.
Q. How long are the speaking sessions?
My speaking sessions are very flexible and can be catered to individual requests. This ranges from 15 minutes to over an hour, often with additional time for Q & A sessions. I have also presented at award ceremonies, school assemblies, and conferences. These can last several hours and often require giving talks to multiple audiences throughout the day.
