In 1998, I was at the lowest point of my life. Suffering from a serious back injury and in a mentally abusive relationship. I was told I would never run or work in my chosen career again. I lost a close friend through cancer and had no direction. Thankfully, I had some great friends and colleagues who listened, without judgement and supported me to get back on my feet.
I have had an incredible career and have met many inspirational people. The single most important thing I have learnt is that we all have a story and at some stage in our lives we need to be heard.
My purpose is to help as many people as possible improve their ability to communicate.
Communication is the foundation of any relationship. As one of my inspirations, Maya Angelou, once said "people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
