A moving experience.

If you’re going to invest valuable time and money into developing your people, you want it to be a totally worthwhile experience for all.

I’ll get your audience thinking deep, their bellies laughing, and a powerful message etched in their brain… so powerful that it inspires action long after the curtains are drawn.

Having transformed many an advice professional at speaking gigs over the years, I know the real value of any session is the difference it makes in someone’s life down the track.

I do it by sharing decades of invaluable experience and sprinkle it with a light, casual presentation style to get even the most seasoned industry pro re-imagining what’s possible.

I’d love to be considered to speak at your next event, conference, PD Day, summit, or symposium… or whatever forum you’re running.

My secret sauce.

A huge serve of

When people are energised, they learn more and take courageous action.

A pouring of engagement.

Catching and keeping people's attention makes messages stick and impact felt.

A big dose of

Serious business is more rewarding with belly-aching laughter and a smile on your face.

Kim is a very articulate speaker, with a very casual-light style of speaking that keeps the attention of her audience. In each state she was unanimously rated as the best speaker that presented to our people.

Some valuable topics.

Here’s a sample of topics that audiences found valuable.

They can be done in person or virtual and delivered as a keynote presentation, breakout session, practical workshop, virtual training, or webinar.

Depending on how deep you want to go and the impact you want to make, they can range from 45 minutes to multiple days (with breaks of course).

If I added all the presentations I’ve ever delivered, you’d be here forever.

However, if your mission is to grow, inspire and help your people be more valuable(and build more valuable advice businesses), we should chat.


A craveable client experience is your competitive advantage

How you make people feel, when you do what do, is a deal breaker.

Humans crave connection. They want meaningful relationships, not just technical expertise, quality, and price. Yes, they want this, and they want more. These days, clients also expect an experience that's effortless, engaging, and enjoyable.

Creating an immersive and interactive experience for your clients is a must-have strategy for success. If you don't, someone else will.

A perfect fit for:

Professional services businesses and teams who want to better serve, engage and work with humans.

Key learnings:

  • What clients crave today
  • How to be un-forgettable
  • The small stuff to sweat
  • Ways to out-service and stand out
  • Clever ideas from other industries


Rethinking the value of advice

People find the time and money for things they value.

The best advice businesses know this and embrace it. Rather than stick with tradition, they are curious about what's valuable and what's not. They get inside people's minds and develop a framework to create, capture, and deliver value consistently.

Clients need you more than ever. Be the value they want to buy.

A perfect fit for:

Financial services professionals and businesses who want to be more valuable. To make money, have an impact, and live happily ever after.

Key learnings

  • Creating a value mindset
  • What people buy and you sell
  • Pursuing value in today's world
  • Showcasing value to humans
  • A framework for rethinking value


Communicate to grow relationships

Communication is the essence of meaningful, long-lasting relationships

Being technically savvy is only half the story. It's also about communicating with people in a meaningful way, so they feel seen, heard, and understood.

Confidently communicating is more than the words you use. It's a full-body experience that involves making sense of what's said, what's not and uncovering the real meaning of a message. It involves capturing both sides of the brain, telling stories, and ensuring mutual understanding.

If handled with care, communicating unites humans and creates unbreakable bonds.

Communicating effectively is a superpower for growing your relationships.

A perfect fit for:

Professionals who want to up the ante with how they communicate, connect and converse with humans to deepen relationships.

Key learnings:

  • Designing communication for understanding
  • Taking conversations to more meaningful depths
  • Asking insightful questions that strike real connection
  • Exploring the hidden meaning and finding opportunities
  • Using communications to showcase value

BONUS: communicating more effectively is a valuable skill for life, not limited to work.
