Personal Description:

I used to work in an advertising agency and hated doing presentations! My hands would shake, my voice would wobble and I would break out into sweats. 30 years ago, I left advertising and trained as an actor - and have been a professional actor ever since. And I still hate doing presentations! But I have learned a trick or two from working as an actor, and from running theatre and corporate workshops as a facilitator - skills I wish I'd had a chance to develop when I was still in advertising. And now I can pass those skills on to you.
