Dee is passionate about training that makes a difference and has won a number of business awards in recognition of her innovative and effective training approach. With over two decades of management experience, her background ensures clear advice and guidance is given on real-life situations and covers approach, content, strategy and techniques.
Dee helps professionals who suffer from public speaking fears and helps them to deliver engaging business presentations with confidence.
As proof that her training techniques actually work, Dee did a few stand-up comedy gigs which, in addition to enabling her to test her own monkey-taming techniques, has helped her bring humour and fun to the learning environment.
She has also had a wide variety of speaking engagements – including being interviewed on the ITV News at Ten, and conference speaker at a number of annual conferences. She frequently works with European participants and has run training courses in four continents.
One of the reasons she achieves such great results is the use of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), which is known as the “study of success”. Dee uses it to help people learn more quickly, at deeper levels, and create more positive mindsets.
She is a Certified Trainer of NLP (meaning she can certify Practitioners and Master Practitioners) and a Trainer Member of the Association of NLP. She also worked as the Marketing Director for the ANLP and runs the annual “Applied NLP in Business” programme.
Prior to setting up Simply Amazing Training, she worked on a wide range of products in different company settings. Her experience took her from Jacob’s Creek to Jammie Dodgers, Bernard Matthews to Boddingtons and Marigold’s to Murphy’s, allowing her to develop expertise across many communication tools including TV advertising, international event sponsorship and conferences.
Dee’s passion for commercial communications was recognised upon graduating with a 2:1 in Business and Marketing when she was awarded The Cooperative Prize for Best Marketing Student. She also has a Diploma of Industrial Studies and a Chartered Institute of Marketing Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing.
Dee is the author of the book “Taming Your Public Speaking Monkeys – Building Confidence For Public Speaking And Presentations”, which outlines her unique, innovative and effective approach, and of the book “High-Performance Presentations Public Speaking Tips & Presentation Skills to Engage, Persuade and Inspire“.
