Speaker assignments

I speak for free if the time and opportunity makes it possible, and the topic is aligned with my goals.

I won’t charge a fee, but I will ask for a charity donation to one of my chosen beneficiaries:

  • London Medical Education Academy
    • to train a fistula surgeon from LMIC (Low and Middle Income Countries) with G4 Alliance for Safe Surgery (£5900)
    • Observation opportunity for medical students to learn surgical anatomy (£250)
  • Danesfield School Charity where I am Chair of the Board
    • (£200)

I will however ask for travel reimbursement if distance and timing requires it.

My favourite topics include:

  • Building a winning team from a bunch of discontented angry people
  • The Peacock Strategy — make a startup the market leader in 3 years
  • How Small beats Big, and how to build on Nimble feet
  • My journey from Ballerina mistakes to Business maker
  • Women in STEM and female leadership
  • Why kindness is an underestimated leadership quality and how to change it
  • Bringing  in talent, apprenticeships and mentoring young women
  • NLP and micro expressions, the necessity for someone working internationally
  • Why focusing on strength is so much more useful than fixing weaknesses

I do talks from 5 min to 3 hour workshops, depending on the task at hand. I never run over and I am always well prepared, but not over rehearsed. I like interactions, and will draw on experience in the room, as well as encourage discussion.
