I speak globally for audiences ranging from curated, small dinners to conferences with thousands of attendees. I love teaching & empowering others to avoid the mistakes I’ve made!
I’ve spoken at more than 25 events this year. I headlined this conference for Vogue, hosted for the European Union at their International Women’s Day event at SXSW and Nico Rosberg invited me to speak at his Greentech event in Berlin.
I’m a guest lecturer for Columbia University and speak at corporate events including for Revlon, JP Morgan and the New York City Council.
In my previous life I was a foreign correspondent. It led me to interview a LOT of people - among them, Bashar Al Assad in Syria.
I’ve had the privilege to interview more than 5000 people during my career as a journalist for networks like the BBC World, Dateline, CNBC & Channel 7. From terrorists to transformational leaders, I’ve sat down with Global CEOs including KPMG’s Lynne Doughtie, activists like Blair Imani & Christy Turlington as well as Julia Gillard, Hugh Jackman & Brad Pitt.
These days, I speak & write about gender & diversity globally as the founder of PepTalkHer - a tech company on a mission to close the pay gap.
I’ve been featured in media outlets including CNBC, Vogue, Marie Claire, Forbes, Women’s Agenda, News Corporation, ABC’s The Drum and others.
HOW I HELP!
If standard, boring keynotes are you thing, we’re not a great fit! I work with clients looking for speakers who can engage a room and lift the mood, no matter the audience.
It’s nice to walk away from a conference informed, surprised & with tangible learnings you can apply in the real world. Life’s too short to listen to tedious, same old same old speakers!
I keynote, MC & host live fireside chats on stage. I pride myself on being a fun, high energy, interactive host.
WHAT I LIKE TO CHAT ABOUT
I speak about Imposter Syndrome, Driving Change Using Technology & The Confidence Gap. I tailor content for the audience.
Journalism taught me to be versatile & handle conversations on the fly - this year, I’ve moderated panels & workshops for NBC, Silicon Valley Bank, The Financial Gym and others in the USA, Asia & Europe. Panel Topics I’ve hosted include The Future of Autonomous Flying Vehicles, Financial Freedom & Promoting Women in Technology.
I travel from NYC or Sydney.
