I have been speaking in public since the 1990s. I used to pay money for the privilege as an active member of Eastside Toastmasters club in Hamilton achieving the following levels of Toastmaster success:

  • Competent Toastmaster
  • Competent Leader
  • Advanced Toastmaster Bronze

When I moved to the Manawatu for my career I left Toastmasters. I will probably join again one day but right now I have a job that keeps me busy and a business that gives me the creative outlet I need. From time to time I speak at conferences – it terrifies me but I also find it quite satisfying.

These are some of my recent speaking engagements:
