I’m an experienced and sought-after speaker, regularly speaking in the corporate, personal development and educational sectors to exceptional feedback. I adore inspiring and empowering others to transform their lives, and being on stage means reaching many people at once. My style is to mix delivering great content – sharing wisdom, processes and tools – with storytelling and audience engagement to brilliant effect.
Before training as a coach and a speaker, I spent a decade working in investment management, managing a communications team in a deadline driven and pressured environment. I then started my own business at the same time as becoming a single parent.
My personal experience of the pressures of corporate and entrepreneurial life means I’m very well placed to understand the challenges that can arise for those in the corporate world.
I’m well known in the London personal development world, speaking regularly to great feedback and frequently invited back to speak again. My willingness to share vulnerable, challenging moments and learnings from my own life underlies my ability to connect quickly with an audience.
My style is engaging, personal and authentic. I weave powerful stories with processes, tools, and, where appropriate, interactive, impactful exercises, to make lessons directly applicable to an audience, and easily and immediately actionable.
The opportunity to speak to teenage girls, and to pass on the life lessons I have learnt through my own journey, means that they might chose a different path for themselves from the outset. Courage, resilience and knowing how to honour themselves are the main focus.
The feedback received shows that my talks impact, inspire and empower girls enormously. My talks to teenagers are best suited to ages 14-18, and fit extremely well into school PSHE framework, as well as into a lunchtime or after school lecture slot.
Harriet was one of our speakers at WeAreFutureLeaders, a conference that supports the next generation of female talent. Harriet’s talk was exceptionally well received by all our guests, the feedback was nothing short of amazing. Harriet has this wonderful ability that allows people to show their vulnerabilities and in turn be their most authentic selves. She is a wonderfully inspiring speaker who I have no hesitation in recommending. A real superwoman who empowers others wherever she goes.
‘Harriet’s talk was fantastic. Not only did she give us plenty of practical steps to take away with us, she also talked through the theories underlying particular techniques. I’ve already started using more positive body language and ‘anchoring’ to great effect. I’ll definitely be going to another event. Thank you!’
I have known Harriet since we trained together in 2014 at Pony Express Speakers. I have attended a number of her events and I always walk away inspired and uplifted. She is a great speaker who shares her broad knowledge and wisdom in an authentic way that is very well-constructed. She is able to connect with her audience with ease to deliver powerful tips, tools, lessons and practical ways of making powerful changes.
Harriet is an amazing speaker; her energy, vulnerability, presence and heart-felt delivery keeps the audience fully engaged. At LOVEx, and having seen Harriet speak on a number of other occasions, I have always seen and felt the audience connecting with her and her message. I know from feedback that Harriet’s talks have changed many people’s mindset and helped them to grow. As the organiser of a regular multi-speaker event, this is exactly what I want from speakers and for my audience.
Harriet has been my guests on a number of podcasts and has also spoken at my Love HQ’s midsummer meeting. Harriet is an inspiration. Her message is profound, sensitive and clear. As someone who has lived through as much as she has, Harriet has come out glowing and extremely wise. I would recommend her coaching and beautifully vulnerable talks to anyone who is lucky enough to work with her.
‘The effect of Harriet’s event has been really profound and life-changing. I feel more complete as a person. I will not rely on anyone else to make me happy anymore. It’s a nice feeling. Now I realise that we are all perfect the way we are, there is no need to criticise and be horrible to ourselves. I am learning to like myself now. Thank you!’
‘I got a lot more than I thought I would from Harriet’s talk! A lot of these things can sound the same but this was very different and well delivered. Powerful tools and tips from a woman who has first-hand experience of how tough life can be and how to take its lessons and move forwards. I definitely want to get in touch with Harriet again! :)’
