​Areas of expertise

Your event needs to wow your audience and have them leaving the room raring to go with real tangible ideas and skills that they can put into action the same day.


I work in a rather unique way in that unless you particularly want Powerpoint and a scripted speaking engagement, we will have an initial meeting to discuss what you want to see achieved in our time together. Your event then has a coaching approach to empowering and educating your audience.

This leads to a fun, interactive session where your audience gain real insights on how to achieve more, work smarter and live a better life.


Here's just a few of the subjects I cover;


  • Resilience in stressful times.
  • Teenagers and corporate careers.
  • Remote working and success.
  • Happy people, happy team = success.
  • The 3 O's - Overwhelmed, Overloaded and Overworked.
  • Networking No No's and Know How.
  • How to supercharge your 60 seconds
  • Change lover - how to cope with anything.
  • Overcoming adversity.
  • The Mindset to success and happiness
  • Fight the fear – (Individual sessions or combined) Fear of speaking up, Fear of people finding out who I am, Public speaking fears, Picking up the phone fears, Fear of success, fear of saying No, Fear of looking stupid, Fear of asking for help, fear of taking time out
  • Rocketing Confidence
  • Powerful communications (anywhere!)
  • Marketing Production Line – How to make sales on a beach
  • How to get your blog out of never read land.
  • How to ask for what you want – and get it

"I recently asked Mandie to be a guest speaker at a Santander Breakthrough Session. Mandie was more than happy to be a guest speaker and was really well received by the audience of SME business owners. The talk Mandie gave was regarding the "non effects" of Brexit and I found it to very eye opening and the general audience took a lot of helpful tips to help their business prosper in a time of uncertainty. Great knowledge and easy to work with."
