Speaker

I love speaking to groups of all sizes and am regularly seen around Bristol and the local area, talking about a wide variety of topics.

My favourite topics to speak on are:

  • Coding with WordPress
  • Project management
  • The carbon emissions of the internet and websites
  • Working with clients and other humans
  • CSS and front-end development
  • Women in tech

Whatever I’m talking about people tell me they enjoy my friendly, relaxed style. I never shy away from honesty as I think that is an incredibly powerful thing to share. I often talk openly about my own mistakes or experiences – afterall, I am human!

If you’re running an event you’d like me to speak at or host a stage for, drop me a line.
