I am an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction and love to be surrounded by books.
Both speaker and media trained, I love hosting conversations with authors where I use my coaching skills and reader’s focus to draw out the essence of their work for a delighted audience.
I am regularly engaged by bookstores, book festivals and conferences to interview authors and leadership experts.
I am experienced in both one to one and panel discussions in live, virtual, and pre-recorded formats.
Contact me for more information.
For those looking for reading ideas I discuss all things bookish at @FestivalMavens, the Instagram page I co-author with Melbourne-based friend Ali.
