Working together to inspire your people

You’re putting on an event. You want something that’s fun and useful, inspiring and practical, for everyone.

When you’re bringing together colleagues, customers or a community for an event, you want them to walk away feeling inspired, energised and equipped.

Whether it’s something energising to punctuate the more nitty gritty parts of a conference, inspiring to kick off a fresh new vision on ways of working, thought-provoking to complement your learning programme, or a more intimate fireside chat to support workplace wellbeing.

I’d love to help you with that.

Struggle: Unlocking Creativity & Resilience in the Face of Adversity & Uncertainty

What’s it all about?

Whether you’re navigating the uncertainty of a global pandemic, market volatility, business transformation, team dynamics or personal journeys of change, loss or growth…

You’ll know struggle.

Struggle is universal. It’s the one thing we all experience, yet it’s also the one thing we rarely talk about.

It’s time for a new conversation. One that’s more truthful, hopeful and ultimately more useful.

Without glorifying struggle, we can face it with confidence. This talk will guide you through the landscape of struggle and out the other side. You’ll leave with a new way of seeing struggle that strengthens your relationships and resilience, enabling more innovation, learning and growth. Emboldening your next steps.

Watch me in action


“Grace delivered a 90 minute Productivity Ninja session for our Staff Day at Teenage Cancer Trust in July. She was a pleasure to work with in the build up, unflappable on the day and delivered a great session that was packed with advice and tools that people – including me – have been putting into practice straight away. Thanks Grace, I’d love to work with you again!”

The graphics rocked!

I had the pleasure of connecting with Grace almost a year ago when she ran a “Productivity Ninja” virtual development sprint for our EMEA & APAC based employees. Her calm and patient approach landed very well with our employees, and the content was incredibly engaging. We stayed in touch after that and when she published her latest book “Struggle”, she kindly sent me a copy which I devoured and immediately knew this whole topic was perfect to spotlight at Discovery. When I asked her if she would like to run a keynote based on the book, despite the fact she hadn’t developed this yet, she didn’t hesitate and we worked closely to get the messaging right for the company, and make sure key points were covered. We just ran the session yesterday which was another huge success – thank you Grace! Not only was it incredibly thought provoking, but it was engaging and the graphics rocked!

Grace is flexible, thoughtful and ultra communicative – from a client perspective she’s a dream consultant to work with! I have no doubt we’ll continue our collaborations in the future.

Left the audience buzzing

Grace was the first presenter of the day at our biannual conference this year. We always find the first talk is crucial to the energy of the day, and Grace proved an inspired choice. Not only did she impart an amazing number of ideas in a short space of time, but did so in such a dynamic, fun and inclusive way that it left the audience buzzing.

Grace empowered us with highly useful and memorable strategies and tactics to reduce overwhelm and effectively prioritize and focus.”

Perfectly pitched, relaxing, fun, interactive and reflective

A perfectly pitched, relaxing, fun, interactive and reflective session to wrap up our two days. You contended with sh*tty tech and tired fundraisers, but what was really lovely were the authentic, raw and personal contributions from people who had not found their voice until that moment.

Grace is a breath of fresh air

“We were thrilled to be able to have Grace as one of our keynote speakers as part of our Global Learning at Work Week at Pearson. Grace was incredibly flexible in her approach to working with us. She listened to the specific challenges we were facing and designed a session that would resonate with our global colleagues.

Grace’s session was one of our most popular sessions for the week, and you could feel the buzz in the Zoom chat as our colleagues listened, learned, and bounced additional ideas around.

If you’re considering helping your own teams think about how they balance their own work life balance and be more productive, Grace is a breath of fresh air. She offers tangible and practical ways to make effective change and who wouldn’t want to learn from a Productivity Ninja?”
