Each talk I give begins with a conversation about what you need to ensure there's value for your audience. Then I create a narrative based talk that will entertain and teach. I use my 20-plus years in sport, the interviews I've done with scientists and other passionate people, and the work I've done supporting thousands of athletes to speak about goal setting, how to find motivation, and, crucially, how to stay motivated once you've achieved your goals, a topic that touches on health and work-life balance.
My favourite topic is people who are passionate about what they do. Whether it's a scientist who's devoted their lives to studying a rare beetle or an athlete who's perfected their craft, I find passionate people fascinating.
I learned to shoot while doing travel writing. I love telling stories with words but photos capture something words can't. I believe the right mix of words and photos can tell more compelling stories.
