We ask the tough questions
Who, or what, is your biggest inspiration?
I just love Mr Steve Jobs (CEO of Apple). Not only do I love the products they produce, and the simplification of their branding and communication, but the presentations he gives take you on an incredible journey, keeping his audience on the edge of their seats. Check him out on YouTube for some inspiration, or the book Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs.
What's the biggest thing you've learnt this year?
Give a breath and slow down - but honestly I'm still working on that one.
What's the best bit of feedback you've ever had?
When the head of marketing for Volkswagen told her team how much I inspired her with what I had achieved at Presentation Studio over the last 5 years. I was floored!
What’s the cheapest, most effective bit of marketing you’ve ever done?
We are investing lots of time and energy in our social media strategy. We believe that increasing presentation awareness will only happen through education. By getting our name out there through Facebook, Twitter, blogs etc. just helps raise our profile and puts us in front of the right people. This also helps with our Google ranking.
What’s the best piece of business advice you’ve ever been given?
Stick to what you are good at and outsource the rest!
What music are you listening to at the moment?
Abba - my 5 year old won't let me drive without it on full blast!
What is the one regret you do not want to have in this lifetime?
Missing my children grow up.
What inspires you most about your work?
The transformation of developing a presentation from beginning to end. In our workshops we work with clients to storyboard and structure their presentation, then we design it - and they come back in to rehearse. It's a great process and I love the results.
What do you wear to work?
I can be wearing a pinstripe suit one day and ugg boots the next!
What do you love most about running your own business?
Flexibility and the excitement of having an idea and just making it happen.
How would you describe yourself in three adjectives?
Creative, dedicated, passionate.
Do you subscribe to any magazines or newspapers?
I love Pulse and Flipboard on my iPad.
And now comes the plug!
