My personal story is about finding a better way to live, work and communicate. For the past 15 years I've been in fast-paced senior jobs on national newspapers including the Daily Mail. I've developed strategies for dealing with stressful situations with compassion. And I've learned how to speak to colleagues and audiences in a way that brings out the best in myself and my team. When my son was diagnosed with autism at the age of four, my family and I faced a new challenge - how to create more work/life balance to support him, and how to encourage him to express himself by communicating better ourselves. Now my mission is to support both executives and parents as they improve their communication skills to bring about greater success and happiness.
