As one of TEDxFolkestone 2018’s speakers, I didn’t want my TEDx journey to end! So I now volunteer, supporting speaker recruitment, and the selected speakers as they transition from a seed of an idea to put it out there to the world. My background is in HR and culture change, and I am the founder and managing director of Ordinarily Different Ltd, helping organisations realign their people and processes to the modern ways of working. With this in mind, it seemed a perfect fit for me to get involved in this aspect of TEDxFolkestone. The only problem is… I want to be back on that red spot again!

TED as an institution has delivered so much richness in terms of knowledge, development, and change, across the world through the power and wisdom of its speakers. So to be part of this community both as a previous speaker and as a volunteer for TEDxFolkestone, fills me with joy!
