It is always a pleasure to converse with audiences, both live and online. My speaking engagements have taken me around the world, and introduced me to inspiring purpose-driven innovators.


Imaging a world powered by 100% clean energy

I created and hosted this media series, inspired by the beauty of pristine Fiji. Global thought leaders in clean energy gathered to discuss innovative solutions to reverse the effects of climate change and establish a clean energy future.

"A Force for Legacy"

In October 2016 I gave the closing keynote at the annual conference for Community Colleges of Australia in Sydney. Every presentation had a movie theme, and given my work history with George Lucas, mine was Star Wars.

So I presented “A FORCE FOR LEGACY” combining wisdom from Yoda with poignant life lessons I learned having survived the eye of cat-5 superstorm Cyclone Winston, which struck Fiji in February 2016:

  1. Plan, prep, repeat.
  2. Surround yourself with wonderful people.
  3. How we love is what matters.
  4. Life is the gift.
  5. Share your talents, with flourish and delight.
  6. Serendipity abounds, if you look.
  7. Sense what is there for you to learn.
We've had amazing feedback on your presentation. The main thing was the passion in your delivery, the 'careful' pace and the hint of a deeper message without the need for explanation... and your smile.

— Michelle Simpson, Executive Director, Community Colleges Australia

In every moment we create our legacy, who we are and how we impact our world. To reveal your sparkling essence, take Yoda’s words to heart and “Unlearn what you have learned.” Unlearn your defensiveness, your anger, your bitterness, your resentment, your jealousy and all those feelings that diminish you. Heal from within, and as the artist you are, paint your own life the way you want the world to be. Let the cyclones of your life be the catalyst to overcome your fears. And find the courage to step into your full potential, your dreams, your joy.


"What is your legacy?"

Each and every one of us has the opportunity to show up in every moment in such a way that is so powerful that it transforms our world and positively impacts everyone around us. I gave this presentation in Melbourne, Australia to explore the lasting impacts of one lifetime.

"The Ethical Founder"

Actionable Wisdom to Elevate Your Spirit

As the world spun to a halt in 2020, everyone sheltering in place due to the novel coronavirus, my daughter and I co-hosted a weekly series streamed live from Fiji. We gathered every Sunday morning to share the magic of the islands, sprinkle kindness and laughter and explore opportunities to allow higher consciousness to pervade our realities. In this episode, we discussed how to create in flow, by using sense decisioning and tuning into the rhythm of the universe. More clips here.
