Public Speaking

As a broadcast journalist, speaker and educator, I speak to large audiences and small groups about such topics as the future of work, emerging technologies and brand communication.


Through my broadcast career in the US and UK, I have had the privilege of interviewing and working with company founders through various stages of their startup journeys. I have reported and written for live shows on the BBC, CNN and the Financial Times. I host and present the podcast, How to Build a Village, which features global entrepreneurs, authors and journalists.  Through in-person and virtual workshops, I provide content expertise, such as video and podcast production, brand development and audience engagement advice.


I have interviewed hundreds of company founders around the world. I enjoy using that experience to advise entrepreneurs throughout their business development, and help companies of all sizes to reach and develop new audiences.
