After 20 years as a journalist/TV presenter, since 2008 I’ve been helping executives improve their presentations and handle the media. I became well known to the Australian public as a news reporter on Seven News from 1991, and for my ten years as the host of Today Tonight - a public affairs program on the Seven Network which moved up the rankings to become the Number 1 program in its time slot during my tenure as anchor – from early 1997 to the end of 2006. Since 2008, I’ve been the Director at Managing Your Message -which provides customised Media Training, Presentation Skills and Sales training, Media Crisis Management and Media Consultation to a wide variety of companies. I am passionate about assisting companies, Senior Executives, Sales and Marketing teams and anyone who needs to speak to the media or give a conference presentation, to communicate effectively with genuine, credible influence and impact. MYM runs customised workshops covering all the elements of Presenting - Content and Construction of key messages (in line with the company’s brand strategy), Story-telling, Delivery, Engagement, Body Language, Voice, Controlling Nerves and Mindset. I can assist you in refining a pitch or upcoming presentation, and of course I can help you develop the key messages you’ll need to create to maximize the opportunity of engaging with the media. I have trained numerous CEOs, the executive team at Myer and ANZ Private's Relationship Managers, I provide presentation skills workshops for NAB’S Board Ready Program, and have worked with PwC, CVA Property Consultants, BIC, The Heat Group and a host of other clients in varying industries, from legal firms, financial advisors, sporting entities, trucking companies, and media organisations to name just a few.

I have worked in a number of retail businesses (some small and some bigger) across Australia, UK, US and Europe, running e-commerce, marketing and digital teams. Each has had very different challenges and opportunities: how to grow traffic, how to make sure we get a return shop, how to improve what the customer thinks or feels when they shop with us. More often than not, this comes down to the catch all of customer experience. My expertise is in helping to join the dots between all the different marketing, digital and promotional activity and create a coherent plan and approach for customer experience, then making sure we have a way to measure it and learn from it. I'm practical and down to earth and I really enjoy learning about different businesses and helping where I can.
