I host writing events, workshops and retreats in Melbourne and on the Mornington Peninsula, although I have also been known to pop on a plane when asked nicely. I also partner with amazing experts in other fields to share my content knowledge with their tribes. This has been done via webinars, Facebook Lives in groups, others’ writing events, conference presentations and also in-house workshops for marketing and sales teams. My message is always the same: figure out what your story is then use it effectively to communicate your value and connect with ideal clients.

Here’s a list of upcoming events:


YTM Influencer Awards – Contestant, 28th April, Black Rock

I’m super excited to have been asked to be one of the speakers at the annual YTM Awards. This year’s topic is ‘WHY influence…‘ I’m up against some stiff competition but I’m thrilled to be included amongst these brilliant influencers: Janine Stratford, Anne Holland, Warren Howard, plus 2 more (TBA).

YTP events are much more than your average networking function. You are guaranteed to meet someone who you can help or who can help you.  Conversations are vibrant and the energy in the room is always fantastic.

This retreat will be a truly immersive experience. Not only will you rest and unwind, but you will get SO MUCH DONE! It’s about clearing space and time to focus on the next best thing for you and your business.  It’s about distilling all that knowledge into a solid body of content that you can point to  when asked to demonstrate your value and it’s about creating products that you can leverage to grow your business.  This writer’s retreat is going to propel you further in 5 days than you’ve been able to move alone in 5 months (or longer!)

Writers Retreat – Laos, 17-24th October, 2020

This is no ordinary writing event. This retreat offers a beautiful chance to visit an enchanting, mystical part of South East Asia, often ignored in favour of neighbouring Vietnam and Thailand. One of the most peaceful and least explored countries of the region, Laos is mountainous and landlocked and offers incredible scenery including some of Asia’s best waterfalls.

High in the hills at the stunning Belmond La Residence, you’ll be immersed in local culture and creativity.  Your mind will be clear, your body will feel good and so your writing will take on new form and clarity.

As with all of my writer’s retreats, you get 1:1 coaching plus the benefit of small group learning. Your experience will be customised to suit whatever writing project you undertake – blogging, a book, social media, a program, a keynote speech…

Starting at just $3562 (twin share) for all meals, accommodation, transfers, coaching, plus so many incredible cultural experiences, you’ll wonder why you’ve never visited Laos before!
