A note from Kim
Hi, thanks for visiting the website. This is me:
"Born in Liverpool in the UK, I’ve had a lifelong interest in setting up new initiatives, in connecting people, and in language. I also have a love of moving to new places. So far I’ve lived in ten places within five countries, including New Zealand and Uganda, East Africa.
Creating new services that are of benefit to others has been a passion of mine, and I’ve been able to find a way to do this in many aspects of my life. For example, several initiatives when I worked as a careers advisor for clients with special needs; a support group for home-based business people; an agency for dancers; a new chapter of the professional speakers association; unique services via Successful Speaking.
Developing my interest in language has led me to gain a degree in Linguistics, along with speaking qualifications and awards; a national speaking championship; an international writing award; and several books published.
I love connecting with people via the written word, so books, newsletters, articles, emails and blogging feature heavily in my life.
Other than these, the two biggest aspects of my life are my wonderful husband and children … and chocolate! Equally."
