I’ve now seen Heather speak at three events, I’ve hosted. She is great at engaging with the audience and getting them to laugh. Her audience come away inspired to implement her great tips on networking. If you are looking for a keynote speaker who your audience will love, or a speaker who can help you get people talking and building relationships at your next client/networking event, then I highly recommend Heather.

About Heather

Heather is always up for a challenge. Perhaps this is why she specialises in, predominantly, helping accountants, lawyers & consultants market and sell themselves. Either to take the final step up to partner or create work-winning conversations with new clients. You know, the really difficult bit, how to actually kick the door down to get a meeting with a potential client.

In fact, over the last 12 months Heather has supported her clients to build their profile, differentiate themselves, grow their reputation, and in the process add over £1 million in fees to their client portfolio, and often make partner in the process. These include:

  • An audit client securing a £200k contract with a new utilities company client
  • A 120+ accounting firm being 6 months ahead of forecast as a result of our work together
  • A 150+ global consulting firm used our ‘Go To Expert’ programme as an entry for a prestigious award. They used our programme as they have tangible proof that it has impacted the top and bottom line of their firm, and been a driver in helping them generate new clients to achieve their target of 27% annual revenue growth.
