Speaker, Facilitator, Conference Host

Book me as your host, a keynote speaker or a workshop facilitator at conferences, events or leadership offsites.

Every session or speech is carefully tailored to suit what the audience’s needs. They are always carefully designed to include practical, actionable tips so those listening leave not just inspired and energised but ready to act.

I am regularly asked to be a host for conferences or events, including as an energising panel host or interviewing senior leaders on stage.

Executive teams who are looking to work better together, and to get the pace right in a fast-moving world also ask me to facilitate half-day or full-day workshops to help their conversations and plans.

I have successfully spoken or hosted at a wide variety of business events across the world. I’m delighted to get consistently positive feedback from those organising events who book me to speak.

If you’re looking for a female speaker who brings energy and expertise to leadership conversations, please do get in touch.

Specifically, for our Partnership Summit, she spoke very well about modern leadership, brand leadership and how to lead with speed in a way which was very positive, energetic and engaging. She did very well to understand our needs and flex her approach. Sophie is a true professional.”
