A gay woman in a man’s world

I’m so proud that I’m known for being a confident gay woman. It’s by being true to myself that I’ve been able to be true to and support others in their career.

Creating an environment where people can truly be themselves is essential for me. I never want people held back for their nationality or sexual preference or anything. With my last business we attracted a lot of people to join us based on the fact they could truly be who they wanted to be. I didn’t want to create a uniform approach.

As the face and personality of the company, our foundation was Diversity and our culture was always Equality. We were all about freedom, and we created a special community where our people could thrive.

Here i discuss:

  • being gay, female and neurodiverse
  • allyship
  • diversity, equality, LGBT+
  • allowing people to be themselves

Key Messages:

  • Acceptance allows organisations to create the right environment for their teams to thrive.
  • Sharing my journey has and will continue to help others.
  • We still need to talk about these things: Equality, Diversity and being gay! (unfortunately).

Public speaking subjects

Concept to sale of a services business

Over a period of 1,000 days I built and sold a digital transformation consultancy called Difrent who designed and built services across the public sector and the NHS. I then sold the business for an eight-figure sum.

Transformation of the NHS

I led the patient-facing transformation of the NHS and introduced things like the NHS App to the healthcare system in the UK. We went from a repository of content (NHS Choices) and built live transaction services that 50 million users a month access.

My Personal Journey and Development

I learnt I am the biggest investment I’ll ever make. My talk stems from this and branches into fitness, meditation, getting sober, the 12-step programme, learning, my interest in psychedelics and my experience on the global leadership programme for the top 1% of entrepreneurs.


Leadership is multi-layered with many moving parts. I’ve had to be comfortable being on such a public platform and comfortable in my own skin. With all eyes on you, tough days in the office can be spectacular!
