Speaking, Press and Broadcast Inquiries
I would love to speak at your event or be a guest on your podcast or radio show and to talk about how we care for ourselves and make a difference, the intersection between Wellbeing and Impact:
Her areas of expertise are:
- Using wellbeing as a key principle in our approach to social change
- How our own self-care and healing can enhance our impact as change makers
- Beating Burnout and Building Internal Resilience
- How women can build their capacity to resist doing-it-all
- Cultivating humane and just leadership within organisations
- How to beat chronic exhaustion and value-drift in the social justice sector
It’s all about how we stop being exhausted and start caring for ourselves as a root to greater impact as change makers.
She has seen and experienced the burnout that so often comes with change making work and I see an opportunity, at this time, for us to start to do things differently.
