Her presentations make allowances for a wide range of business sectors, engaging in real life scenarios as opposed to the dry theory of a text book.
Speaking from Experience
Seeing old things in a new way is something Gina was forced to discover the hard way when a ski accident in February 1983 took its toll on her mobility, leaving her wheel-chair bound by 1989. A Head Teacher of a primary school at the time, Gina looks back on how she continued her leadership role, "I loved my job but I had to consider the affects my circumstances would have on the school children and my staff," Gina explains, "If I was to continue I knew I had to change my way of thinking. My injuries affected my energy levels and mobility and being in a wheelchair limited my access to the classrooms. In order to overcome these challenges I had to strategically plan ahead to find longer term solutions and develop the potential of my staff both as individuals and as a team. It was this which underpinned our ongoing success."
Along with 20 years experience in leadership and management, Gina is also an inspirational author, a Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and a qualified coach. In all areas of speaking, consultancy, training and coaching, Gina's work takes on a practical, jargon free approach which has been tailored to suit a variety of organisations including schools, the National Health Service, local government, Capita, Microsoft, Gleeds, Ketco, Estuary Housing, Essex University and a number of smaller companies and individuals.
Promoting change through self-awareness, Gina uses strategies and techniques of NLP to empower emergent, middle and senior managers. As an expert in personal and professional development, both key factors in driving business performance, Gina has become a highly-valued on-going resource after her speaker sessions.
Gina's speeches, workshops and programs can be tailored to the needs of individual organisations. Approaches are as varied as a a thirty to ninety minute keynote speech, a half day corporate workshop to a two day live-in program. Gina believes that a different way of thinking can make all the difference; "With the right perspective on life, there are ways and means of achieving your goals."
