Bring Me On As A Speaker
I know it can be vulnerable to admit we don't know something - especially if we're in a role where we're supposed to be the "expert" – be it as a company leader or as a care worker. But the truth is, we're all human beings with things to learn (how wonderful!). I would love to help you expand your knowledge and skill base so that you can cultivate a healthy, more sustainable work culture, safely and competently work with clients of expansive identities and backgrounds, and bring a more trauma-informed and trauma-resourced approach to your work and your life!
I also believe media can be a fantastic, accessible way to bring these important issues to a wide audience and I welcome interviews and other collaborations.
Bring me to your group or podcast!
