As a blogger, TV Broadcast and award-winning TV director and filmmaker, I regularly collaborate with brands on tailored content, freelance writing, lectures/ panel discussions, radio days, ambassadorial work and consultancy.
I can also direct, produce, film and edit video content, as well as feature and front campaign films.
I have spoken about female entrepreneurship and maternal mental health in the House of Commons and I contributed to proposed strategy at the Government Equalities Office stakeholder forum on gender equality and economic empowerment.
My new business, a digital video course, The Working Mother’s Academy, upskills mums worldwide so they can launch their own digital businesses.
My debut book: MUMBOSS became a number 1 Amazon bestseller when it was published by Piatkus/Little Brown/Hachette in May 2018 and was listed in the top 10 business books written by women in the Independent.
A 2nd UK edition was printed in 2020 and it will be released as The Working Mom in the US and Canada in October 2020.
My family and I live in Windsor, Berkshire and this platform is where I share my life and loves.
I regularly feature on TV as a presenter and/or parenting expert and have appeared on BBC World News (Beyond 100 Days was broadcast to over 100 million viewers), BBC News, ITV’s This Morning, Good Morning Britain, BBC Breakfast, Lorraine, Channel 5 News, E News and SKY News.
Nothing beats live TV in my opinion (bar having babies)!
Below, I share a few blogging highlights over the years:
I feel incredibly lucky to have collaborated with Jamie Oliver, Westlife, Brad Bird, Ava DuVernay, James Martin, Aldo Zilli and the late Antonio Carluccio OBE to name just a few creative hereos I’ve had the honour to work with.
When it comes to campaigns, clients have included Google, Yahoo, Vodafone, Nokia, Huawai, Coca Cola, Ford, SKODA UK, Land Rover, MG, Philips, Net-A-Porter, Selfridges, Boots, NIVEA UK, Aldi, bareMinerals UK, Boots and Superdrug amongst others.
Being a filmmaker, I relish attending film premieres and festivals, regularly reviewing movies and interviewing cast and crew members at film junkets.
It was a dream-come-true to interview superstar actress Kim Cattrall and attend a Q & A with the great Mindy Kaling, Reece Witherspoon, Oprah, Storm Reid and Ava DuVernay, interviewing Storm and Ava beforehand.
My book is another memorable career milestone. I embarked on a UK book tour for MUMBOSS over 2 years meeting hundreds of readers all over the country from York to Belfast and beyond.
I have also spoken at Marie Claire’s Future Shapers Live, BritMums Live and on an Influnecer panel at The Internet Advertising Bureau.
Along with Jessica Huie MBE, I co-founded the former ‘Passion into Pounds’ in association with the British Library offering insight into how to turn your ideas into businesses and work on your own terms.
These events have trended on Twitter and featured in national press, reaching thousands of entrepreneurial women over the years.
Most importantly, my family and I are committed to using my platform to help others and we regularly take part in charity campaigns based both here and abroad.
