Speaking and Hosting
I am an experienced and eloquent public speaker. Passionate about connecting people and nature.
I have been the keynote and headline speaker at many prestigious wildlife and nature festivals and events, sharing experiences about my life as a presenter and a mother and the challenges of bringing kids up as “Free Range”.
Drawing on my experiences on and off screen, I aim to engage and entertain audiences by making wildlife relevant and accessible. I have a secure scientific background and knowledge and love to inspire people about the natural world around them.
I speak at many careers fairs, school prize giving ceremonies and festivals, sharing my passion for the putdoors and inspiring young people to follow careers in the Media and STEM subjects.
