With guidance they have become powerful, engaging presenters and speakers who use their stories to deliver outstanding, memorable and life changing speeches.

After many years of working in the corporate world of banking and the IT sector, Vanessa knew her real passion was helping people to creatively express themselves through the power of  their voice. It was then she made a transition to pursue a journey of personal development, taking her to Ghana. Her heart was torn by the humility and gratitude of the young people. Their passion and desire for self-improvement was incredibly insatiable and inspiring.

The passion and commitment led Vanessa to follow her dream to become a motivational speaker and overcome her fear of public speaking.    This took her to America where she was coached and mentored by the world’s Leading Motivational Speaker Les Brown and is now a recognised Les Brown Platinum Speaker.

Vanessa shares the global stage with Les Brown and other renowned national and international speakers.

When Vanessa speaks her audiences are moved and challenged to fulfill their true potential. Her simple and practical tips are so easy to implement into every day life.
