Over two decades of delivering talks and workshops.
Speaking & Workshops

For 23 years Annie has been delivering talks, corporate trainings and workshops, from Coutts, Chelsea Football Club, BNP Paribas, ITV, SkyTV, Yahoo to Soho House sharing her expertise in how to thrive. She is here to break the construct on ‘how’ we are supposed to be, and ‘how’ we are supposed to do things.

No psychobabble, no self help lingo.  No beige, basic or mediocrity in her world.

She is not shy about speaking candidly and openly about her own mistakes, huge successes, rock bottoms,  burnouts and how she turned things around.

Her talks educate, inspire and guide you on success without burnout, how to use energy psychology to reset, neutralise and de-stress, performative leadership vs potent leadership, a fresh approach to imposter syndrome and feeling safe to be you,  managing emotional outbursts, politely saying no, and setting boundaries with ease.

Keeping it fun, she  delivers her talks with candour, warmth and easy to understand knowledge adjusting each one to your needs and industry. She also ensures participants leave with intensely practical, tangible tools that they can implement straight away.


Annie has worked with us to develop customised talks for soho house. For example, we have covered a wide variety of topics including reclaim the leader within, how to manifest and call in wild success, and tapping into your unleashed potential… Each talk was well-structured and researched for the particular needs of the members and always delivered with the humour and realism that typifies Annie and her work. She  offers a pragmatic set of tools that the members can take away, which always go down so well.

“There was standing room only. The members loved Annie’s talk, her relatability, her honesty, her humour… and most importantly we had so much amazing feedback on how simple, yet effective her tips and  tools were”
-Shoreditch House

“We’ll definitely be inviting you back Annie. Thank you, the team got so much from your workshop and I for one, found the simple strategies you gave for setting effective boundaries with difficult personalities incredibly helpful. I’ve applied them and they work… they totally work.”
