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 also have a deep understanding of what it is like to be an ambitious woman in industries that are more male dominated, and the challenges that this can bring for professional women.
My style is engaging, personal and authentic. I weave powerful stories with processes and tools, and, where appropriate, interactive, impactful exercises, to make desired learnings directly applicable to the audience, as well as easily and immediately actionable.
Topics that I speak on regularly in the corporate sector include:
Confidence and self-esteem, including body confidence and speaking up with confidence
This area works especially well for female professionals who would love to convey greater confidence in the workplace; female-only audiences can find it easier to open up, voice their current challenges and take on board the learnings. However, the tools and shared are just as relevant and impactful for a mixed audience.
Total emotional and physical wellbeing, including stress and emotional management, avoiding overwhelm and burnout, energy and life balance
These topics fit well into mental health and general wellbeing initiatives, during mental health week and at other times. Additionally, they can be very helpful ahead of busy, deadline driven times of the year when stress levels rise and staff are at risk of overwhelm.
Talks and workshops can be tailor-made according to the topics that would best serve your organisation.
I offer one-on-one and group executive coaching programs that can be delivered during working hours, in house, as part of employees’ CPD.
It's not often that someone comes along with the natural ability to inspire people just by being authentically REAL, without any performance or NLP tricks. Harriet has this ability, and whenever she speaks, her audience turn into raving fans who are keen to spread the message about her work. Harriet is an asset to any event - be it to inspire teenagers at school, aspiring entrepreneurs or the hardcore corporate crowd. If you are looking for a speaker to shake up your audience with a lasting impact, look no further and book Harriet.
Harriet really is passionate and knowledgeable about wellbeing and energy. Because she walks her talk, she brings this subject to life. She gave my colleagues a practical way to improve their wellbeing in her lunchtime talk on How to Be More Energised, Productive and Calm.
Harriet and I have worked together co-delivering both online webinar sessions and face-to-face seminars. Harriet’s warm and genuine style means that whatever the format, she is able to immediately connect with her audience; whether a room full of hundreds or a small workshop with just 10 participants. Feedback received for sessions delivered by Harriet is always positive with many commenting on her authenticity and the positive dynamic she creates. I have also found Harriet to be super organised and insightful in both the planning and evaluation of events.
Harriet is a pleasure to work with as a speaker. As someone who works with over 100 different speakers every year, Harriet is one of my favourites and she never disappoints. She is very professional and captivates the audience with ease. Having had Harriet speak at my events on many occasions, I look forward to working with her again in the future, and I highly recommend her for all speaking gig and events.
I’m a highly sought-after speaker in the personal development, corporate and educational worlds. Speaking gives me the chance to inspire and empower large groups of people at once, passing on my wisdom, experience, tools and processes. My style on stage is to use a mixture of delivering great content, story-telling and audience engagement through impactful exercises to brilliant effect.
