About me
An international Northerner with a healthy obsession with storytelling. From a young age, storytelling has been engrained in everything I do. Having built my career through the advertising industry delivering campaigns for global brands, I recognised the power storytelling can have not only to businesses but to individuals too. This is why I now spend my time championing self-advocacy through my company and book 'F*ck Being Humble'. In 2018 I set out on a mission to change the way the world views self-promotion, encouraging people to be unapologetically proud of their achievements. Since then I have delivered talks to international companies, festivals and my book on the topic of self-promotion is available for pre-order on Amazon today. I'm a self-confessed lover of public speaking and networking and I come alive when helping different communities, whether that be through hosting events, mentoring or idea generation. Named as Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe 2020 and as one The Dots 100 women who changing the creative industry, leaving a legacy of positive change is what I hope to achieve. The Dot's named the F*ck Being Humble events series in the top 30 events to attend in London this year, so check out the events page for upcoming workshops you can attend!
