About the speaker
I was born and brought up in South Wales, and after living and working in London for most of my career I now live back home in Penarth, just outside Cardiff, with my husband Alun (aka Frank Honeybone), and our son Tommy.
Like you I have many roles in my life, from wife, mother, housekeeper, business owner through to daughter, carer and friend, and whilst I value each role it is important to me that
what I spend my time on each day inspires me and allows me to focus on what's really important. I know we could all do with more time in the day, and I believe that finding out our core values and life purpose is crucial to making the most of our time and living a fulfilled life every day.
In my private life my inspiration is my family, and particularly my son, Tommy. At the age of 2 he was diagnosed with Autism, and as a parent of a child with special needs I found myself completely thrown in at the deep end with very little support. After a steep learning curve I can now help and support other families with Autism. In 2010 I founded the charity "The Autism Directory" whose mission is to help autism families get the help they need.
In my professional life I have 25 years experience in business management and consulting working with Accenture and the senior management teams of some of the major blue chip companies around the UK, including BT, Pfizer and Prudential. For 4 years I also held a directorship for a London based consultancy and I continue to run my own businesses today. My expertise is in developing people and businesses through the management of change; whether that is business change in terms of the people, processes and technology that is required to meet an organisation's goals, or the change that is required to improve someone's performance in business, or indeed any area of their life.
As an accredited Coach, Trainer and Master Practitioner of NLP, I help people from a range of backgrounds to achieve their personal and business goals, and as a result to live happier, more balanced and fulfilled lives.
