I regularly work with organisations on in-person talks and group webinars. My most popular sessions to date include:

This high-energy session helps attendees to think proactively about what’s important to them in their career. It includes plenty of tips for shaping their professional path in a way that works for them. It focuses on managing their mindset, taking ownership and getting comfortable with talking about the work they do. Delegates will come away with lots of actions and resources to draw on. Perfect for organisation Career Days and for Employee Resource Groups.

“Ellie gave her “12 ways to effectively take charge of your career” session online to our network. She came across as energetic and personable yet professional, and her talk contained lots of useful tips. It received great feedback from the delegates.” – SV, Head of Employee Network for Women in Science

“Ellie was one of our main speakers on our live stage for our first ever ‘Virtual Careers Focus’ events at EDF in our Customers and Corporate teams. We had great feedback on the sessions she delivered for us on ‘Taking control of your career’ and ‘Learning to love LinkedIn’. Massive kudos to Ellie for delivering the sessions live on our main stage with such enthusiasm and with really clear and concise steps. Look forward to inviting you back in the future Ellie.”  Zoe Sorrell – HR Business Partner, EDF

This practical session moves you from being a LinkedIn ‘lurker’ to someone who shows up, contributes to conversations and raises the profile of you and your organisation. There will be examples, the chance to ask anything, and the requirement to be brave and get involved. The session can be tailored to focus on the goals of the team whether you are hiring, raising awareness of your brand, or supporting departing employees with their job search.  

“I cannot say enough good things about Ellie … what energy, enthusiasm, positivity she brings to her training and how she managed to get us all writing posts and contributing to the conversation is incredible. Thank you! We learned so very much!” Laura Sercombe – CEO

“Ellie designed and facilitated a ‘Learn to love LinkedIn’ workshop for us. She shared her insights and vast experience. Her high energy fast paced and very personable style brought the topic to life. Thanks so much Ellie for inspiring us to re-engage, re-connect and for reminding us of the power of networking, increasing your visibility and building your personal brand.” LT – CEO and Founder 

This session challenges delegates to rethink what we mean by networking and to consider its benefits – thinking about taking a long-term, authentic approach to building and nurturing professional relationships. It includes some practical exercises to reflect on who it would be most beneficial for you to build relationships with, and consider different ways of networking that will play to individual strengths.

“Ellie ran a networking webinar at my previous orgsanisation for our Career Day. Her professionalism and energy made the session engaging and informative and her authenticity is a key ingredient to her credibility. She is challenging whilst constructive and is not afraid to push.”  WR, Head of DE&I

If someone suggests getting more visible, how does it make you feel? This session helps you reflect on what you want to be known for at work, and how you can influence it to happen. We focus on stepping out of your comfort zone whilst remaining authentic and pinpointing the difference between talking about your achievements and bragging. It will help you say yes to more of the right opportunities (without saying yes to things that don’t serve you) and avoid some mistakes that could be holding you back in your career. It includes resources and book recommendations for further self-development on these areas.


Each session is available as a 1-hour keynote or a more interactive session over 90 or 120 minutes to include a range of exercises and reflection. It can be tailored according to audience size and delivery method (available both in person and online).
