As an accredited facilitator of Brené Brown’s curriculum (The Daring Way & Rising Strong), I’m passionate about being part of a global conversation about vulnerability, shame and courage.

Fired Up. Ready To Go. Barack Obama

Don’t ever doubt that your voice matters, or of it’s power to create change. Five words shouted by a woman across a room became a slogan that was the making of a president. Watch and learn.

What will you tell your daughters about 2016 TED

Sometimes you come across words that reach inside, squeeze your senses and leave an unforgettable imprint. Chinaka Hodge is a writer and educator, and presented this spoken word piece at TEDWomen in October 2016. Since I first heard it many months ago, I’ve thought about it so often, that I wanted to share it with […]

Love After Love Poem by Derek Walcott

Today I had a smart, capable, big-hearted client who said to me ‘I have grief about how long I did the thing that wasn’t right for me.’ It’s crushed her and she’s now picking herself up and forging a new path with bravery, self-compassion and curiosity… inspite of still feeling fearful and uncertain.

Simon Sinek

I’m a great fan of Simon Sinek and his Start with Why movement. I’m also a huge 99u groupie. So when I discovered this video of Simon speaking at the 99u conference, I just had to watch… and share. My biggest takeaway: authenticity matters – it’s how we build trust and create meaning. Enjoy. Simon […]

Julia Gillard The Misogyny Speech

Never I have thought that a politician could be so brave, so direct and so on point. In 2012, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard gave a speech that directly addressed the issue of sexism and misogyny of political leaders in parliament. It caught world attention for her calling out the gender-bias and discriminative views displayed […]

I’m one of those people that can quite quickly dissolve into tears in intense situations, or when I’m moved deeply – either through sadness, frustration, stress or appreciating beauty (aka watching contemporary pieces on So You Think You Can Dance) or feeling deep connection and appreciation. I often wish I had better control of myself, […]
