What's been your most outstanding career/business achievement?

After surviving the 2002 Bali Bombing and overcoming the depression which ensued after losing my best friend and my partner, I decided to start telling my story in an effort to give these experiences meaning and to help others know that there was a way out of the pain. What I found in my travels and over 180 speaking events, is that there are a lot of people out there who have amazing stories of all kinds. I also found that the more I spoke at events and groups, the more money I made, which was a wonderful surprise! I have since developed The Art of Public Speaking Seminars where we uncover the secrets to masterful engagement on the stage and presentation building techniques which are being used by Anthony Robbins, Christopher Howard and many of the world's most dynamic and inspiring speakers.

What are your top 3 networking tips?

n Never say 'never' - Our experiences don't happen by accident. We are here to share our experiences so that others may grow and learn as a result.
n You get what you focus on - If you want to grow your business, if you want to be at the leading edge of your industry, then believe it's possible and when you do, you will begin to see the people, the books, the experiences unfold before you which will bring you what you want.
n Stay there! - When you are talking to someone or when you are doing something, be there. Don't let the world pass you by because you are thinking of your groceries, or you are worrying about something that may happen in the future or has happened in the past. Pay attention to the here and now.

What's been your most successful marketing or career progression strategy?

When I discovered the power of Mass Connection, through Public Speaking, my career results and financial freedom became an extradordinary by-product of my desire to make a difference to the world. This has been the single greatest contributor to my success and my happiness to date and I can't wait to share it with WNA members.

What can't you live without?

I can't live without my family, my dogs and my GHD hair straightener! Honestly though, my family and my animals give me quality of life and I am eternally grateful for the love and support that I receive.

What value and benefit have you or your business gained by being a WNA Member?

Wow, where do I start? When I started my business three years ago and began speaking some of my first speaking engagements were with WNA. I guess you could say that WNA was the platform I launched myself from and I wonder if I would have discovered this fervent desire to build a seminar business without them! Thanks WNA, you literally gave me the opportunity to change my life and I am very lucky to have had you on my side.
