Inspiring people to be the best they can be • Speaker, Coach & Mentor at OnionTalks•
As a speaker and mentor, my goal is to inspire and encourage others to overcome what some may deem impossible and show people that no matter what may come our way, there are only two outcomes to any predicament at any given time.
Life is really that easy!!! 🙂
Some of my specialties are being a connection catalyst, listening (Yes, it can be a specialism!), enabling and inspiring people to be the best that they can be.
You may be wondering about the name Onion Talks. The full story behind it is on my website www.oniontalks.com but I consider myself to be an onion because I, like all of us, have many layers and each one reveals something new. I help people to peel back their layers and find out what’s beneath.
Many people have called me inspirational and while I just like to think of myself as a wife, mother and grandmother who gets on with life, I can’t deny that my story and message do inspire people. Most people are shocked when they meet me to find that I am classed as 95% disabled, have survived cancer five times, have had two heart attacks and suffer from MS, but I don’t let that all of that stop me and I think that is one of the things people find inspiring.
I’m usually asked to speak at events where they are looking for someone unique. As an onion, I like to think I fit that description. Every audience member takes something a bit different away and many of them remember small nuggets years later.
One of my signature talks is ‘Natural Networking’ as I consider myself a bit of an authority on the subject. I’m proud to have helped two national networking organisations to become market leaders from startup.
As a mentor, I like to think I’ve been there and done that from competing as a British gymnast, serving in the armed forces, working as a sales trainer to founding a charity. This gives me a great platform to support and mentor others.
Onions don’t bite, so please connect and tell me a bit about yourself and I’ll tell you more about life as an onion.
