SPEAKING, PRESENTING & MC-ING
So much of being open in your sexual and intimate life means speaking up. Using your voice. Being real, authentic and clear. In my experience, there is no way around it.
Lucky for me, I love speaking. It wasn’t always this way but as my wisdom grew, so too did my confidence and my desire to get out there and share.
Here is my blossoming portfolio of my speaking engagements where my expertise has been enlisted by other women who run health and wellness services.

THE WOMEN’S HEATH + FITNESS SUMMIT PLATFORM
In 2018, I applied for and secured a position to deliver a TED-like talk at the Women’s Health + Fitness Summit in Melbourne. I underwent 4+ months of rigorous coaching to deliver my well received talk on women’s internal experience of pain with sex. The talk gave health and fitness professionals a rare insight into how a sex therapist works with women experiencing a hypertonic (overly toned) pelvic floor when this is inhibiting her capacity for penetration.
MY GREATEST PERIOD EVER - MC
When Dr Peta Wright + Naturopath Elysia Humphries organised for Lucy Peaches to come to Brisbane and perform her My Greatest Period Ever show for a charitable cause, it was an immediate yes for me to grab my ticket as a member of the audience. Yet when Dr Peta asked if I would be the Master of Ceremonies (MC), it was an even bigger YES! My roles as MC included being a part of the planning process, adapting to and executing last minute changes, doing time checks for all involved, making announcements + introductions and assisting with promotion.
BIG BOOBIE BASH
Being invited at Australia’s first breast positive event was beyond thrilling! Catwalks, models…it was all happening and being there to share what I call The 4 Pillars of Embodiment was LUSH! I mean, when you’ve got 15 minutes to really create impact, you’ve got to share something that’s tangible and going to be used at home pronto. The feedback afterwards was so affirming - there was something for every woman at every stage of life.
FRIEND'S OF THE BIRTH CENTRE + GO MUM FITNESS
I have been honoured to speak at multiple events for The Birth Centre and Go Mum Group Fitness to help mamas open up about their feelings of “not being sexual” or interested in sex in their postpartum recovery. These talks helped women to feel less judgmental about their journeys so that they could start to open up to new ways of intimacy when they feel time and energy are in low supply.
YUMMY MUMMY PHYSIO 8 WEEK CHALLENGE
The powerhouse that is Paula Forster (aka Yummy Mummy Physio) has had me speak to her group of mama’s in a totally casual setting to help them learn that they can be a mama AND sexual. We speak about making time for sex, what hormones are actually doing for the first 18 months or so and when breastfeeding, my own personal story of mamahood and libido and brainstorm a few ways to lighten problem situations and common concerns.
