Hello! Thanks for considering how Presence Communications can help you benefit from better communication habits.
I'm an experienced corporate communications professional who helps people in business communicate with confidence.
I've built a successful career on influencing audiences in effective ways that add tangible value to existing brands and new commercial opportunities.
I've worked for iconic Queensland health and education services, in the public and private sectors, as well as with numerous start-ups, small businesses, and not-for-profits.
I believe confidence is the ‘secret’ to being noticed - seen, appreciated and trusted. Confidence comes from being prepared and believing in your own capability to succeed.
I love empowering people to develop and refine their professional presence, in person and on paper.
So, in 2013 I established Presence Communications – a training and services consultancy which helps individuals and organisations communicate effectively and be noticed positively for their efforts, achievements, and innovations.
Proudly Ipswich-based, I work with high performing individuals and teams wherever they are in Australia, via online platforms and in-person.
Clients enjoy working with me because I'm quick to become familiar with their needs and I provide sound advice. I'm proud of my track record of advising boards and senior executives on communication strategy.
Sometimes that means bringing in the expertise of others, and I partner with various trainers and organisations to cover skill development in leadership, innovation, intercultural intelligence, sales, and customer service.
I've been a faculty member at QUT and Griffith universities, guiding undergraduate students in their development of highly sought-after graduate attributes. I’ve also run ‘boot camps’ and ideas competitions for postgraduate students and postdoctoral academics at The University of Queensland and five other Australian universities, to help them engage effectively with internal and external audiences.
I'm an active member of the Ipswich and Queensland innovation ecosystems, sharing my communication, training, and facilitation expertise with Fire Station 101 and emerging regional start-up and innovation hubs. I joined the board of the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 2016 and I connect with many business and community people in this role.
