Author

One of the skills I know I undervalued in my Corporate career was my ability to write. To write in a compelling and engaging way and, importantly, to be factually correct. In the insurance industry where I honed my skills for over 20 years, my descriptions of risks, of situations and of offers and opportunities were legally-binding contracts. They also needed to be written in a way which ‘sold’ the story and situation I was writing about. I underestimated that skill at the time. Not anymore.

As author of my own book since 2011, I never underestimate the power of being able to engage as you write. Explain, provoke, question and describe in simple, straightforward terms. Within 2 months of being published, my book was being taught to further education students in a University in Austria. It was a proud moment when I spoke to the students at the Austrian Embassy in London and many of them said it was as if I was speaking just to them as they read the book. That’s the point. I am speaking to you as I write. I want you to be able to compel, connect, move and engage with people as you go about your business. I want you to be understood.

Change One Belief

Change One Belief

We buy into our beliefs so deeply we think they’re real but in fact they’re all made up and are just thoughts. In most cases we’ve inherited our thoughts and beliefs from parents, coaches, teachers, TV and media.

We’ve bought into these beliefs and thoughts so deeply some people are prepared to die for them. Does that give you a sense of how powerful beliefs can be? According to the writers of this new best-seller, that power is an illusion and is only fuelled by our thoughts-which we have the power to change in one moment. So what happens when you ‘Change One Belief’? My story’s called ‘Right Under My Nose’ about how I met my husband and how changing one belief transformed my life in that moment.
