Since 2010, I have also been a guest speaker throughout New Zealand for many different organisations and groups. Over the years I have grown to love being on stage and having the opportunity to talk about my passion and help parents and carers to find and nurture their own innate parenting styles. And also to help guide my family support colleagues with mentoring and education.

Public Speaking, Workshops & Seminars

I have had the pleasure to speak at various baby shows including Auckland Baby Show (for the past 11 years), and also local Baby Shows in Dunedin, Whangarei and Wellington as well as the Baby Expo in the Bay of Plenty. In 2024 I’ll also be presenting at the Hamilton and Wellington Baby Expo’s.

Other guest speaking events have been at: Dimples by Jane Anne, Global Baby, Baby on the Move in both their Auckland and Tauranga stores, the Langham’s Hotel Tea Party, Tauranga City Council (workshops at the Tauranga and Papamoa libraries), New Shoot’s Children’s Centres, and Multiples Auckland.

I also presented at the Healthcare Professional Education Event on Colic, called ‘Constipation in Infants’ with Dr Peter Nobbs. A definite highlight!

And from 2011 to 2022 I was OHbaby! Magazine’s sleep expert advisor and speaker at their ‘Coffee Catchups’ and Live Facebook sessions on a monthly basis. My USB tutorial videos are included in OHbaby!’s online Ante Natal course.

If you’d like to talk to me about any media opportunities, workshops or seminars please email – fee vary and are dependent upon the event. 

Educational Workshops & Talks

For several years I taught educational workshops with parent centres around the country, such as the West Auckland Parents Centre for their ‘Baby and You’ sessions, Onewa Parents Centre and the Essential Baby Help Workshops around the North Island. I’ve also been involved in upskilling workshops and guest speaking for Porse, as well as a number of other government departments.

I continue to offer my services to parenting groups, charities, organisations and governmental agencies as I believe there is great value to be found in sharing expertise and experience with a view to upskill and mentor the workforce tasked with supporting parents.

In 2024 I will be presenting to the staff at Little Discoverers Early Learning Centre in Hamilton.

Coffee Groups

Very happily from time to time, I speak with small local coffee groups and it’s something that I love immensely.

Additionally in my Nurture VIP Parenting Facebook Group, every month one member will receive a free 45-minute coffee group session with me, where they can invite a group of friends over, and I’ll meet virtually with the group enjoying a cuppa together while we have a chat about parenting and I’ll answer as many questions as I can in the 45 mins.
