Speaking Events

I’ve always been a talker and strongly believe in the power of story-telling. Being real and honest about the joys and challenges of parenting a child with complex disabilities can have a profound impact. To date I have spoken in Parliament, national and international conferences, private company events and for local charities. I endeavour to bring humour, clinical evidence and the heart beat of family life into speaking events.

  • For policy makers, it is essential they understand the impact of their work.

  • For charities and commissioners, it is important they recognise the families they support.

  • For practitioners, it is vital they hear the heart of the story behind the jargon.

  • For parents, it is simply good to feel a little less alone.

  • For everyone else, understanding a little of what happens behind closed doors stimulates kindness, understanding and a little more acceptance.

I have shared some of our story on the radio, TV (TBN) and at a variety of events. I work with business, charities, universities, churches and local support groups.

My speaking engagements include Parliament, alongside Amanda Batten CEO of Contact: for families with disabled children at the Disabled Children’s Partnership Campaign Manifesto launch, International events (such as the European Seating Symposium 2018), several conferences (both Professional focused – National PMLD conference and Christian – New Wine), local faith gatherings and events supporting parents of children with disabilities.

I am passionate about using our story to shape policies, inform practitioners, improve services and connect with families.

My faith is also a part of my story and I have contributed to church events and lead seminars with CWR and New Wine.
