Take A Tree Break
Take A Tree Break started at the beginning of Covid19’s arrival in the UK when I started to share a daily slice of nature based mindfulness through Instagram. The aim of this project is to keep us connected to ourselves, each other and to benefit from the support that a connection within nature gives us, which seemed all the more important during such an unsettled time. This has since grown and has now become a lovely plump and varied collection of tenish minute nature based mindfulness practices that were recorded live and can be revisited at any time via Instagram
I have since partnered with Soulful Food in a collaboration to share these practices with their audience and I am also now offering bespoke sessions for small groups and 1-2-1’s sessions. Further details of these can be found by clicking here or by clicking through to my testimonial page, here.
Talk Wordy To Me
Working in collaboration with theatre producer Lydia Scott (The Old Vic Theatre, Mark Rubenstein), I am currently co-curating and hosting a series of conversations at the Albatross Cafe in Bristol. They aim to reclaim and celebrate the power in all the things that we are told we shouldn’t think or feel. An opportunity to discuss, explore and interrogate the damage done when society’s voice is the one that we start hearing in our head. And we’re doing it all with a drink in our hands!

startup saturday & festival of female entrepreneurs
For two years running, I’ve hosted the ‘Creative Stairway’ zone at Enterprise Nation’s Startup Saturday which welcomes over 1500 people annually. I presented a day’s programme of panel interviews and live audience discussions with topics that ranged from ‘How to stand out with your packaging’ to ‘How to start a Food Business’ to ‘How to sell without being Salesy’. I was also asked to host a live podcast interview and Q&A at their Festival of Female Entrepreneurs. Read their testimonial of my work with them by clicking here.
whole foods and soil association
I hosted an Organic Kitchen Pop Up at Whole Food’s flagship High Street Kensington store as part of the Soil Association’s ‘Organic September’ campaign. A day full of interactive cooking demonstrations, I interviewed chefs, bloggers and top brands about their products and the dishes whilst they were making with them.
