Key Note Speeches & Demonstrations

The Key Note Speeches & Demonstrations that I offer can be tailored to suit your needs.

There are “Lunch & Learn” packages for business. There are talks for specialist groups such as Arthritis or Parkinsons Ireland as to how to improve health quality through diet.

Perhaps you are a member of a community group or The Women’s Institute and wish to know more about how you can use food as medicine. Either way the talks are very informative and lots of fun.

I can tailor content and recipes to your own requirement. I travel to your organization or I can host the class at your preferred venue.

What will you learn?

Some examples of my recent talks:

  • What to eat to beat the 4 o’clock slump
  • Sharpen up and focus with the food you eat
  • Sexy, Savvy Menopause
  • Stopping Sweet Cravings
  • Good Food, Good Sex
  • Reducing exam stress and stopping breakouts (teenagers)
  • Overcoming Anxiety and Chronic Exhaustion
  • Detox without the Drama

Why Invite Me?

I have many years of experience interacting with groups large and small. I have appeared on stage in front of 1000’s and regularly host intimate learning days. My weekly Conscious Cooking Class ran in Dublin City Centre for over six years and I love the buzz and spontaneity of public speaking.

My presentation style is dynamic and engaging. I use humorous, real life examples to ground the learning in accessible daily life. I am very flexible; tailoring an event to meet your needs, whether that be part of a professional development day or a stand alone, informal, fun event for your staff.

Everyone will go home with something, whether it be a new recipe or an insight into a behaviour they might like to change or a remedy for a physical condition they would like to heal.

Key Note Speeches can range from 30 mins to 4 hours and anything in-between. Tell me your audience, choose your topic, pick a venue and we can take it from there.

Here’s what some attendees said…..

“Thank you for the notes, but mostly thank you for a wonderfully informative, inspiring and enjoyable talk. It certainly has given me a lot of food for thought… pardon the pun! Your knowledge and enthusiasm for your cooking and your holistic approach to how to nurture and heal both body and mind has given me a greater understanding of what conscious cooking is really about, and how important it is in our hectic lives. I sure hope to be sitting around the table with you in the near future.”
